Topics regarding layoffs at Micron Technology Inc.
Too many bosses anywhere in any company is never good. Micron has let this problem get way out of hand. Perhaps more Supervisors and Managers need to be replaced by Management Temps like everyone else in this company.
Bloated Management that goes on and on. No reason al all to have so many highly paid management personnel in this company. I hope the new Boss looks at this problem closely.
To the new CEO Please, please change the current philosophy of keeping an over abundence of management personnel that in many cases are not needed. Stop employing managers to do the work of supervisors. How many management people do we need to tell... read more
China’s state-controlled chip vendor Tsinghua Unigroup Ltd. announced plans to build a $30 billion memory chip in Nanjing, a city in eastern China. Tsinghua said it plans to build DRAM and 3D NAND flash at the Nanjing fab. There's no way China will... read more
There is no indication at this time if there will be layoffs in 2017. Micron though lays people off all the time. Often we don't hear about it because it is not a large layoff rather a more selective layoff of individuals. If you work in an area that... read more
I am hearing a spring to June layoff as well like this year. I don't know if it is trur, but I have heard it from several different people who are "in the know"
Spring! March or April is usually when Micron starts to put a layoff plan into motion by leaking layoff rumors and then the layoff options appear. Layoffs are a part of the Micron yearly plan, Boise is no exception. Here we go again.
Do you know if large layoffs job cuts are planned for this and next year? What are your thoughts, I am especially interested in Boise.
How can any supervisor and Manager come to work every day and watch their reports just standing around on their phones every day with nothing to do? Not just recently but for the last two years! How can any adult be satisfied with coming to work and... read more
Does anyone know if we will be paying more for our benefits next year?
Does anyone have an idea if a new round of cuts will be coming soon and if yes, what groups and what levels at Micron might be affected the most - I am primarily interested in learning or getting more details on layoffs that may be happening at... read more
When is the next round of lay offs?
Simply put, I didn't want to work anywhere else. I thought I had found my place in the American workforce here at Micron. The problem was that these managers, one in particular, formulated a categorically false and outright blasphemous narrative of... read more
I have heard some sumors from somewhat reputable sources that say there will be more layoffs before the end of the year. How many, from where, and how they will be selected is just speculation at this point. It sounds like some SXP groups could be on... read more
Now that Micron has cut the deadweight they should close the factory in Virginia and have a stock buyback. They can show the world just how un-American these so called "American" corporations have become.\ I would bet that Micron is supporting Hilary... read more
It's no more than posturing to fend of hostile buyers or cleaning up the register for an intended buyer. Either way, this little bubble could easily burst in an instant if pricing goes back down. Expect Micron to either sell or diminish in the next 4... read more
As long as bunch of old fart managing Micron in Boise Micron will stay the same.
Engineer with 3 years at Micron followed by 9 years at IMFT now laid off. No loyalty to long term employees.
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.
