      Pros

      Outstanding company culture, great flexibility, competitive salary. Interesting work and enough freedom and autonomy to flex creativity.

      Cons

      At engineer level, it's a job - even a long term job - but not a career. It's a bit of an old boys' club made up of management cliques from companies previously taken over so unless you're 'in' don't expect to be invited to anything new or know about opportunities until after they've happened.

      A collaborative family of engineers, marketing and salespeople

      Dec 16, 2011 -  in Winnersh, England, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The fact that Microchip has a commissionless sales force leads to a very collaborative working life. Information and leads are shared and people work together to help a customer. Political games, at least among the engineers in the UK, were minimal. It felt like a meritocracy. Management is very approachable and anyone can talk to anyone about ideas, all the way up to Steve Sanghi. Internal hiring was highly valued.

      Cons

      Like many multinationals, it can be quite slow on the uptake of new ideas. The guiding values did not always feel like they were being lived up to. Many times, a move to another country was necessary for career advancement.
