From what I understand talking to several different people Boise will continue over approximately the next eighteen months or so,to shrink. The difference this time is that Boise is shifting the"type" of jobs they will retain. As certain types of... read more

Topics regarding layoffs at Micron Technology Inc.
Rumors here? Updates here? I want to know what executives are planning here in Boise.
In every department , those who can make it to a spot in a circle of handful of people (not experts but cheaters, cunning & clever) who are clever to put their foot at the root of circle of people are the ones who decide whom to hire and whom to fire... read more
The Tech industry and layoffs go hand in hand. Many don't pay it any mind until it happens in their area or until it happens to them, but it is an ongoing process like this one will be over about the next 18 months or so. This is just he first wave... read more
The day Appleton said they would never chase cheap overseas labor, I knew the stage was set for outsourcing, layoffs, redundancies, cost-synergies, etc.
Hourly employees will be almost completely gone by 2019. Over this next year huge changes will be taking place. Layoffs are guaranteed over the next 12 to 18 months. Hourly employees really need to look for other options elsewhere. The new CEO is... read more
Yes the good ol' boys network needs purging for sure. Too many managers with no reports making six figures just hiding in the wings. Too many redundant management positions that are not needed. Hope they finally get it right and purge them... read more
It's all about the bottom line and return to shareholders. Profit profit profit at any cost, Jobs to be gone are in accounting for sure, A/P, A/R, etc. Say goodbye to those high paying benefit rich positions. Will have to buy your own insurance thru... read more
People are already being notified. Some's last day is Oct 10th. Affected areas so far are Test/Assembly/RDL.
We have to use our TOP time again this Holiday season ? I hope not!
Friday, and the end of another week of doing nothing. This can't keep going on. We are going to walk in here some morning and find out we no longer have jobs. They can easily cut this staff by half. Lots of people here riding that easy money train... read more
I was just told we will probably be forced to use our TOP time again this year at Holiday time. Has anyone heard the same?
Management needs to allow a "write to know" column at MERC. Employees can ask questions there
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
