    Risk averse management, government-like bureaucracy

    Principal Engineer (Former Employee)
    Ottawa, ON (Canada)

    ProsGreat technology, working with tier one suppliers and customers, exciting projects and products. Smart people to work with. Fair and decent employer with some of the best employee benefits around. Opportunity to learn.

    ConsIngrained silo-mentality; not much cross-pollination between different divisions. Very hard to break into higher level management if you are not Italian or French. Internecine civil war between these fractions. Unnecessary layers of management. Company is treated as a social service by the French and Italian governments which are part owners, resulting in massive employment levels in those countries. Failures are not sanctioned. Cuts made in other parts of the world, impacting bottom line. High level decisions are often made based on political and economic realities of France and Italy, not on what is best for the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet a German or American CEO. Welcome bidirectional communication with employees. Take risks. Get off the government funding – it comes with too many strings attached. Get rid of nepotism, reward excellence.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Device Engineer

    Device Engineer (Former Employee)
    Rousset, Bouches-du-Rhône, Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur (France)

    ProsThis company has great values (Corporate Social and Environmental Responsibility is enforced), and the management trully believes in these values. I started in this company and I learnt a ton. I was regularly offered new missions to keep on learning, to keep on moving. HR policies are among the best I have witenessed: transparency, communication, and most of the time good listening skills. Even the salaries and benefits are good (for the region I was working in).

    ConsThere is no real high management; however, HR reps told me there was a plan to put in place a proper high potential system in place in the next few years.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe less techies, and more business oriented.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Good working experience

    Application Engineer (Former Employee)
    Singapore (Singapore)

    ProsGood work life balance and benefits.
    Good training from knowledgeable supervisors.
    Support for ideas if you got the right manager.

    ConsSlow and sometimes unclear progression.
    Semiconductor industry has little room for growth without major restructuring. Need to re-focus in light of competition from China.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRestructure properly and implement the right changes and not just for the sake of restructuring.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
