    the work environment is cute and friendly.

    Some projects arrived in a critical path and you find yourself working under stress (project value : some Million of dollars). Hurry up, do your job quickly but do it correctly ...

    Pros

    People, diversity, benefits, mobility potential, European roots, travel, pension plan, good 401k matching, work life balance, cross functional tasks,

    Cons

    Slow to promote, minimal stock allowances, lower pay than competitors, salary increase just matches inflation, constant cost-cutting programs, not investing enough in US as French and Italian employees cannot be layer off.

    Pros

    Have well documented and organized company policies to follow with.
    Goals of each person, team, division, and business unit are very clear.

    Cons

    Hard to get the support from other groups or corporate.
    Hard to get enough resources for the groups that acquired by ST.
    Career paths inside ST are limited.
    Benefit plan is not so good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For product development, should be fair to the groups acquired by ST to get enough resources to get the jobs done.

    Pros

    Good technical class of people to work with.

    Cons

    Very poor management for North America Operation. Management from Geneva are completely disconnected from North America region. So growth and future are skeptical if you are located in this region.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not close sites by looking at financial numbers. Management must see the potential or capabilities of the product. Number will automatically increase when product will go to market in a larger volume. DO not hesitate to try new thing. Every companies is doing that now. Intel changed its face from tradiation Microprocessor to SOcs and tablets, nvidia started makinng CPU, Microsoft entered more and more into hardware so ST should think beyond its MEMS and microcontrollers.
