2020 Tension

Things are getting more tense here at Micron. This year will be peachy...

Lehi layoffs?

Well...Sanjay made an appearance in lehi today....One day before “close” and informs the site that tools will be leaving... and “technicians” too. Pretty broad statement not too many details coming from anyone on site yet. Anyone hear anything else?

Speaking from experience...

Being an equipment technician who left as a 5.0, the people who I worked with who are now in management are in panic.... The new blue brainwash slogan is keep the talent in Manassas... Too little too late for Manassas... You done goofed. Word of... —  read more 

Performance rating season

Managers are finishing their performance rating and providing 60-90 day "improve or be laid off" plans. Ive heard about 8% will get that rating, but no severance this time if they dont make it. Apply elsewhere and believe things can get better... —  read more

Does Micron give severence in layoffs?

I fully expect a major layoff announcement to come within the next month, given the industry outlook and ongoing trade war. In the past, has Micron paid any severence to team members who were laid off? I don't mean the fraudulent performance review... —  read more

Somebody said in another thread there will be layoffs today. Has this been confirmed?

They want to get rid off old staff

This round of voluntary early retirement exercise is another laying-off of old guard after last October exercise, after which this CEO took over since 2017. Don’t think this will stop till the last old staff was being chop off. Furthermore, no... —  read more 

Dear Mr. Sanjay Mehrotra

Nice reviews and major decline in your approval rating as CEO: https://www.glassdoor.com/Reviews/Micron-Technology-Reviews-E1648.htm?sort.sortType=RD&sort.ascending=false Click on "Rating Trends". In 2016 the CEO approval was around 90%. Now in 2018... —  read more 

Rule of 75

Heard more RIF coming. Targeting people with years of service and age equal to 75 or over. So sad. Hire young people with PHD's and pay them more.

Glad I am gone!

Life has never been better since I left this place... I did not get no severance package as I just left because I was being treated like a slave... Worked 18 hours at times and there was never no give. You are lied to and treated like trash. Micron... —  read more

HR is tired of this rank and yank too

HR is tired of this rank and yank too... They do not support it, they just have to. The technical jobs in Boise really do not exist. These supervisors who are handing out the low levels playing the puppet games are the ones who will get hurt the... —  read more 

Layoffs this week

The inside track is that layoffs are scheduled to begin this week. Target audience -the senior crowd. If you are near retirement, micron will honor your retirement benefits early. This is their sneaky way of avoiding the wrath of their dirty play. If... —  read more 


Does anyone have any regrets leaving this place? Has life been better?

Layoff would be a blessing

I'm at the point where I'm hoping and praying to be laid off. Working at Micron has turned from a pleasure years ago into dreading showing up at work each day. I'd quit on my own, but at my age...that's not an easy decision to make. At least being... —  read more

There is no future at Micron

Everybody working here should know this by now. Nobody is safe. And nobody is guaranteed a severance - if that's what people are hoping to get by staying despite everything that's been going on. Start looking for a new job if you know what's best for... —  read more 

Rank and yank

At least when GE used the rank and yank, you had to be rated low 2 consecutive times to be fired. And you were given a year for improvement. Micron's rank and yank is much more harsh. The 90 day option is bogus. They just want the employee to take... —  read more 

The probation is an insult to hard working employees

This "probation" thing is an insult to the hard working employees that have worked so hard over the years to help build this company. Create a new standard that puts performing everyday employees in a stressful bind so the company can pretend they... —  read more 

TOP time

Just to let all of the people know that took the severance package just be aware that your supervisor may be blowing smoke up your butt. My supervisor told me that I would be paid 100% of my top time, however, when I received my severance package it... —  read more 

AGE Group of the people that were let go?

I was one of them that was over 45 and was given the option to do the PSP or take the severance package. Just wondering if anyone younger had a low rating or did it just applied to the older generation?

New Vacation Time?

Can someone tell me what cuts were made to the vacation time vs what it was five years ago? Do you have to use it or lose it now? Did Micron reduce the amount you could earn monthly? Are there really requirements for every supervisor to rate someone... —  read more 

Age distribution of 2018 perf-review/layoff?

Has anybody heard anything about the ages of the 1's and 2's who got laid off in the 2018 "bell curve performance review"? I received the severance packet this week via fedex. It does not contain any disclosure about ages of people let go. When I got... —  read more
