This is becoming a miserable place to work. People being sent to work in other areas weekly for a couple of days. I don't know when I will be working in my area or across town on a daily basis. People that I have worked with for years sneaking and... read more
Once you leave Micron and are working somewhere else you will look back and shake your head wondering why you stayed so long before leaving. When you are able to stand back and look at things more objectively it is easy to realize how much better off... read more
Other than congressional Democrats, I think we are the only employees that can come to work and get paid to do absolutely nothing, accomplish nothing and come back the next day to do the same thing.
Why would Micron have a site just for layoffs?
I’ve reached a point with Micron where it’s no longer worth being employed here. From day one it was apparent that Management will do anything and everything to get ahead - including claiming ideas that you or your team thought of. This has been... read more
The layoff plan announced in September is still in place. It has been quiet over the holidays, but spring is two months away and layoffs will begin to start again. I was reminded of that last week by my supervisor. Don't be lulled by a false sense of... read more
Now that I am no longer with Micron I’m just gonna say that if you decide to take a position here - tread carefully. The company claims to make profits and on the same token sets off a round of layoffs. In addition, depending on the department you’re... read more
To all of my fellow Micron employees. the company is in the process of changing the way we do things around here. Right now things seem to be steady as first wave of layoffs have happened, but remember layoffs are ongoing.Please don't wait to lose... read more
Layoffs are still coming. If you are not busy in your area you really need to realize you are probably going to lose your job. Don't let Micron determine your working future for you. Look for something NOW! Do yo think unemployment will pay all of... read more
All of you that come to micron in Boise in that off site area. You know there is no work but you still take a lot of manager and supervisor money to do nothing every day while others get shipped out and let go. You all sit all day and on internet... read more
I am a recruiter for a semiconductor company. I do not work for an agency but a company outside of the Boise area. I had one of the employees there contact someone here and tell me that they were moving everything in Boise overseas? I don't see any... read more
How can we come to work every day and have no work to do but no one get moved or lay off? Make us wonder if all of sudden everyone go at same time. Why not be fair and tell us why no work?
I have already accepted another job that pays sightly more and I don't have to worry about layoffs anymore and all the gossip that goes with that. Anyone that does not have an alternative plan for work and puts their faith in Micron is making a big... read more
Peeps, let’s now try to talk about the salaried folks with a forty hour work week... Why is it that several departments expect 60 plus hours or more ? I’d be damn if I would work 20 hours and not get paid for it, makes sense right??? This expectation... read more
Somebody mentioned that layoffs at Micron will continue this week. Anybody knows more about it? Been looking around and haven't been able to locate any concrete info so far, so I am kind of hoping it's not true. I am still nervous as heck about going... read more
Severance packages don't last as long as you might think. It is just a bridge until your next job. It is taxed heavily and you end up with a lot less than the initial number you think you are getting. Unemployment probably won't pay your monthly... read more
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
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.
