I left a while ago, but I was wondering if things have improved any since then.

I didn’t suffer battered-wife syndrome at Micron/IMFlash but something else akin to it. I am a career semiconductor engineer nearly ready to retire after long-term stretches with large and 1st-tier manufacturers, plus a few supplier companies along the way. Micron/IMFlash was a cheap imitation. It was a weird dichotomy—some of the friendliest people around but a few at the top and a few peppered in the ranks had the knack of making life there miserable. A few big egos mixed with a lot of people who just took what was dished out. I ditched the place and never looked back—very happy to be out of there.
I have one more thing to say about my experience at Micron. It is expressed in this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GbXIONSjmkY Please watch this. If you want to retain any bit of humanity, please watch this.
This is all I can tell you about my time at Micron. I felt like a battered wife that was being told you will never have it this good with anyone else. The true anger set in after I left on my own accord. They even asked me back. Once I took my next job I receive four times raises in four years than I ever received in nine years at Micron. Imagine being a male with battered wife syndrome. I got out of it. I am a survivor. They told me I would never find anything better. They were wrong. Leave now before they brain wash you...
BTW, I really hope they did for the people still working there. It was a cr-p place while I was there.
