Thread regarding Micron Technology Inc. layoffs

Micron desperately trying to change the perception of the co as an employer.

So the latest ridiculousness has whats left of microns manufacturing departments holding meetings following more negative feedback (what a surprise) about working for micron. Managers want to know what employees like best about working for micron & asked questions like "what do people you meet outside of micron say when you tell them you work here". Lol, most people cringe..or say "micron is still in business?" Micron once again desperately trying to find answers to problems right in front of their face. Become a good employer, treat people right, have a work/life balance atmosphere & people will enjoy working there. Oh, and maybe pay the people who are keeping this place afloat what they are worth! Its common sense, but micron's out of touch management trying to see everything except what is in front of their face.

The difference in good employers and bad employers is simple...Good companys have people lined up trying to gain employment with them because they have a good reputation. Companys like micron are missing new quality employees because of their reputation & have current employees who are just hanging on trying to keep the job they already have -even though they are good employees.

More gourmet coffee machines, new fitness centers, breakroom TVs...Keep trying micron. This company will do anything to attract employees and up their reputation...anything except treat people right.

Actions of the employer are deplorable when they don't treat employees fairly and within the law. Their gamble is that the savings from monkeying with employees performance ratings (to deny them bonuses, raises and or terminations) will outweigh costs of some of the lawsuits that would be brought forward.

Of course the propaganda machine is where they are putting their efforts while drilling fear amongst employees. They cant seem to loose sight of the $$ savings to realize that the trust they have betrayed will not come back. Not worth it. Toxic environment.

Cannot trust management when they act as hypocrites as defined by their actions.

Short sighted approach to management that is unexpected from any respectable company. They are spending a lot of money on gaining industry recognition and luring others/prospective employees by saying things they don't mean and are not true (best employer, amping up their social media channels, etc). The company will do anything to make sure they meet their numbers including wrong and unacceptable treatment of employees, vendors, partners, etc. No values and moral compass (ofcourse they have it listed somewhere on their company's site). They seem to believe that it will all come back at the turn of a switch. Good companies are not built by hiring more lawyers to defend their actions, but by being a good corporate citizen. This is what one hears when talking to current and past employees. It will cost them more in the long run.

Pretty bad people are quitting this place because they are being treated so badly! Best paying employer in the valley but now the worst place to work here. I sure miss the old micron, it will never be the same company ever again!

Sad, very sad!
