Be the very best embedded control solutions company ever.

Mission Statement
Microchip Technology is a leading supplier of embedded control solutions by delivering a broad spectrum of innovative standard and specialized microcontrollers; FPGA products; analog, mixed-signal, timing and security products; wired and wireless connectivity products; related non-volatile memory products and Flash-IP solutions.

In order to contribute to the ongoing success of customers, employees, shareholders and the communities in which we operate, our mission is to focus resources on high value, high quality products, total system solutions, software and services, and to continuously improve all aspects of our business, providing an industry leading return on investment.

Guiding Values
Quality Comes First

We are on a relentless quest for perfection and are committed to the goal of zero defects. We will perform correctly the first time and maintain our company's quality management system certifications to ensure customer satisfaction. We employ the aggregate system so that all employees anticipate problems and implement root cause solutions using effective and standardized improvement methods. We believe that quality is built-in, and not inspected in; and that when quality comes first, reduced costs follow.

Customers Are Our Focus

We establish successful customer partnerships by exceeding customer expectations for products, services and attitude, while ensuring that our intellectual property is protected as we exchange information and share knowledge. We start by understanding our customer's needs, earning our credibility by producing quality products, delivering comprehensive total systems solutions and meeting commitments. We believe each employee must effectively serve their internal customers in order for Microchip's external customers to be properly served.

Continuous Improvement Is Essential

We utilize the concept of "Vital Few" to establish our priorities. We concentrate our resources on continuously improving Vital Few while empowering each employee to make continuous improvements in their area of responsibility. We strive for constructive and honest self-criticism to identify improvement opportunities.

Employees Are Our Greatest Strength

We design jobs and provide opportunities promoting employee teamwork, productivity, creativity, pride in work, trust, integrity, fairness, involvement, development and empowerment. We base recognition, advancement and compensation on an employee's achievement of excellence in company, team and individual performance. We provide for employee health and welfare by offering competitive and comprehensive employee benefits.

Products and Technology Are Our Foundation

We make ongoing investments and advancements in the design and development of our manufacturing processes, device, circuit, system and software technologies and services. We value and protect intellectual properties that allow us to develop timely, innovative, reliable and cost effective total system solutions that give our customers the freedom to innovate for today and tomorrow.

Total Cycle Times Are Optimized

We focus resources to optimize cycle times to our internal and external customers by empowering employees to achieve efficient cycle times in their area of responsibility. We believe that cycle time reduction is achieved by streamlining processes through the systematic removal of barriers to productivity.

Safety Is Never Compromised

We place our concern for safety of our employees and community at the forefront of our decisions, policies and actions. We are all individually and collectively responsible for safety.

Profits and Growth Provide For Everything We Do

We strive to generate and maintain industry leading rates of company profits and growth as they allow continued investment in the future, enhanced employee opportunity, and represent the overall success of Microchip.

Communication Is Vital

We encourage appropriate, honest, constructive and timely communication in company, customer, investor, government and community relationships to resolve issues, exchange information and share knowledge.

Suppliers, Representatives And Distributors Are Our Partners

We strive to maintain professional and mutually beneficial partnerships with those suppliers, representatives, distributors, design houses and consultants who are an integral link in the achievement of our mission and guiding values.

Professional Ethics and Social Responsibility Are Practiced

We manage our business and treat customers, employees, shareholders, investors, suppliers, channel partners, community and government in a manner that exemplifies our honesty, ethics and integrity. We honor our short- and long-term fiscal, social and environmental responsibilities and are proud to serve as an equal opportunity employer.

"There are many things that I like about working at Microchip, but the one thing that stands out to me is the fostering of open communication at this company. Our policy of having regular one on one meetings is one way we do that but also, Steve and Ganesh' commitment to organizing roundtable luncheons with employees, as often as they can. It's a great way to give employees, who wouldn't usually come into contact with the President and/or the CEO, to have some open dialogue with them, thereby sharing ideas and insights with them."

Lia, Executive Administrative Assistant
"My favorite things about Microchip are our leadership, our culture and our leadership's commitment to our culture. I love the fact that employees hold our top management in very high regard; this has not been true at other companies for whom I have worked. Due to our culture and guiding values, we all work together towards known, measurable and common goals. We work hard, and we all get to share in the successes and rewards."

Tammy, Technical Staff Engineer
"I have enjoyed working at Microchip. The leadership is well-respected by the industry and employees. The work environment is stable, and the culture very empowering and supportive. This has been a great place to both grow yourself and make a difference for your customers."

Leslie, Technical Staff Design Engineer
"I love working at Microchip because of the company's guiding values and the way that the pursuit of those values empower employees to become not only better at what they do and further their career, but become better people in the process. The work environment that results allows everyone to flourish."

Matthew, Corporate Applications Engineer
"The way I see it, it is simple. This company wants you to be happy, proficient, and have a good quality of life. Transitioning to this company was seamless as could be, and only got better from there. The comradery is second only to my time in the service. It is a 'little home away from home.'"

Alek, Senior Metrology Technician
"When I first started working at Microchip, I was surprised to meet so many people that had been at the company for 10+ years. Now, I realize why! Each employee values hard work, learning, and success. Our leadership is transparent and promotes our Guiding Values through their actions. Microchip has created a unique culture that promotes individual growth and allows everyone to share in the successes of the company."

Shannen, Business Systems Analyst

The leadership at Microchip goes above and beyond to support employees to allow them to be successful and achieve their goals. The benefits are also fantastic and have allowed me to provide stability and security for my family."
