Topics regarding layoffs at Micron Technology Inc.
IMFT executed that order from HQ -- I was one of them.
IMFT announced a 7% reduction in work force. Don't know if they've done it yet. This was announced in the Deseret news. I would post the link but it's ridiculously long. I'm convinced Micron has a 2nd and 3rd round planned and will carry it out if... read more
Do we have any updates from Japan?
Longmont RIF count 90 out of 210.
I was in a customer facing role and was involuntarily laid off on Wednesday from the Meridian site. I'd only been hired for less than 2 years and we were already short staffed. A manager in my department was laid off so that's #3
With the failure of so many new technology nodes in my opinion it's very possible the Boise Site will be closing soon. If it does that's going to s--- royal for the Boise area having such a huge drop in the economy. Anyone that works in SXP (3d... read more
Is there anyone reading this blog that thinks that this is the last lay off Micron will ever have? If you have made this cut, Seriously, start preparing for the next one. With a very small exception, Micron wants its operations in Asia. If you are a... read more
Most, if not all of us here sacrificed a hell of a lot more in a few years than the champagne sipping, caviar and cracker eating, country club golf cart driving, snarky-assmid-level and executive-level management louts could put in an entire... read more
I'm so sorry to hear about layoffs. It S---S!!! Hardest thing I ever went through at the time....and I was a STUPID dedicated employee and did everything asked of me. Best of luck to you!!!
Disclaimer: I feel bad for what's happening and what is still going to happen so I'm going to share some information that was intended to be kept undisclosed. For obvious reasons I won't however provide any information as to whom I may be or how I... read more
We lost a small number of people from my group in Boise today. The took big paychecks but were weak contributors at best. I was surprised that other groups lost a whole bunch of very technical/competent engineers. None of the good o'l boys got cut... read more
My guess is about 30% world wide reduction (based on these conversations) with likely 10 to 15% from Boise. I think Japan will be hardest hit though.
Allen got hit hard today. About 10% of R&D was laid off. Certainly greater than the 5% Durcan said. And yet they are still hiring in Shanghai.
I was part of a small team who were already shorthanded 3 members. Two of the gentlemen who got hired on with me quit months ago and I was the last hired and last remaining guy. We were not part of manufacturing or anything in fact the division we... read more
Around 70 people were cut from Longmont today. Pretty much complete purges in areas including ASIC design, verification, validation, and system architecture. First & second-level management were also part of it.
Yes, Folsom site will be affected. Reduction levels will vary by department/group.
As with all technology manufacturing entities, offshoring is the norm. Domestic functions are increasingly oriented toward R fostering a difficult position for analysts.
RIF of about 5% globally to be expected.
Micron has always hired and fired, that is true. But after about two years of seeing our work being shipped overseas and coming in to work everyday to total uncertainty about if we will even have anything to do or wether we will be shipped to another... read more
What happened to promotions? The higher end employees go higher, but the lower end employees don't get a shot of moving up. Why? Also, do you expect to see any job cuts in 2016 here in Boise? Any major cuts?
If you need them hire them, when you do not need them, fire them. That's the mantra. Not sure why people are upset about layoffs at Micron, this has been going on forever here.
When you consider that Micron has shipped our jobs overseas it's really not so strange that many Micron sites are experiencing the same work problems that are similar. It is not possible to take away our work and then leave those employees with... read more
The lack of work for over a year now, has created a very disgruntled area in which to work in. It has gotten ridiculous! What does management not see?
There is no real technology project work happening at Micron in Folsom. Managers are hinting employees to not work real hard and retire at G7/8 as there will be no promotions. Most of employees are just in sustaining mode of projects. The micron... read more
At least 5 people in Longmont ACG let go today. Other locations?
What is the likelihood of Micron Technology layoffs in Boise in 2016? Please let me know if you have any information.
