Past and current Micron employees report job cuts, Micron silent on numbers
BOISE — Micron Technology, Inc. has been shrinking its workforce in the last year, but it is unclear by how much.
- Several past and current employees, who spoke to the Idaho Press on the condition of anonymity, said the Boise technology and economic powerhouse has been shedding employees under the radar, both through layoffs and a bell curve that ranks employees and systematically eliminates those who score low.
*In a statement, the company acknowledged the cuts but did not confirm just how many employees had lost their jobs.
"Micron recognizes that many team members have been with the company for many years, and we do not take these proposed decisions lightly," spokeswoman Erica Pompen said in an email to the Idaho Press. "Our commitment is to offer all possible assistance to our team members through this transition."
