Thread regarding Micron Technology Inc. layoffs

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 you. Micron is doomed.

Totally agree with the previous post. I really miss the old Micron and the best coworkers ever. Its really sad how Micron is treating the long time employees who put so much into the company only to be treated like dirt in the end.

I remember back in the 90s when I first started my thinking was I am going to retire from this place. I have never gotten a bad review and almost always got the big performance payouts at the end of the year. About two years ago I got so frustrated with how things were being ran I ended up quitting and going to work for another company. It is really sad where this company is headed. Most everyone I used to work with are no longer employees at micron either.

I am happier but sure miss the old micron. It is really sad where this place is headed with supervisors being expected to give low reviews. I am proof that good employees are leaving because of how we are being treated. Lots of jobs are out there, the pay is just a little bit lower and so is the stress.

@XXeASV3-xhva, leaving Micron will be the best thing to happen to you. It doesn't seem like it now, but you will be grateful down the road. When China ramps up memory production with the full backing of the government, Micron will be in trouble.

I recommend moving to Colorado or Arizona. There are plenty of opportunities for a talented worker as yourself and believe it or not, there are companies that still treat employees right.

If you really want to stay in Boise, checkout Plexus or Schweitzer Engineering. I don't recommend HP. There might be a few others, but the high tech job market in Boise is competitive and low pay which is why Micron gets away with treating their workforce like dirt. I've had many conversations with other employees and we all agree if a large high-tech company decided to setup shop across the freeway from Micron, half the company would leave.

@XXeASV3-xhva, the truth is because of the “rank and yank” policy which our CEO has implemented last year.

The supervisors are force to give their subordinates rating 1 or 2 which the TOP management was given a quota of 10% to 15% in every section or department.

You are a new comer in your section, that why your supervisor must give this rating to you. So as to save other staffs.

But if this policy will to be continued, I forsee the staff in Micron will reduce every year, if there’s no new hirer.

If there’s hiring and at the same time forcing people with lower rating to leave the company, meaning the company is trying to get rid of the old staff or people with low competency.

I just started working here in May 2018 after a 2017 internship and during my mid-year review I am warned I'm in the lower 30%. I didn't think they would place me there since I'm the newest member of my group but here I am. They didn't even give me direct feedback, it was all so general I just feel like I was used to fill the quota.

Just so depressed about this, I worked very hard to get a job here, work a lot of overtime, am working one of the alternative shifts (which isn't easy sometimes) and am very demoralized. I have already started looking for a new job :(

It's a good time to polish your resume, review what skills are in demand in the job market, start training up, and applying elsewhere. Domestic employees should feel a target on their back, and it's best to not be caught flat footed.

Why are people interviewing with this company? Everyone in the valley knows someone who works here and there is nothing positive to say about this India ran company any longer. The job market is pretty tight around here right no too so getting out might not be that easy?

I interviewed for a position at Micron in November of last year. I had 4 interviews in the span of 3 months. I was the last remaining candidate. At the time of offer they said they were no longer accepting candidates for employment but were considering hiring people on a third party or consultant basis. The company then sent a robo email saying the position was closed. During the interview process, the interview teams seemed to be over worked, dismayed, and unhappy. There was a unified feeling of dread throughout the company.
