    Pros

    Raises, Bonuses, Morale, MGMT, people. Working for this company is a huge loss for many people. Many discounts to sporting events, hair salons, and many other things.

    Company went overseas leaving thousands unemployed.

    Pros

    Good (but not great) Semiconductor company. If you are better than average you can truly shine at this company. Lots of opportunities to learn, travel, assume new responsibilities. Some very good mentoring. Good pay at the right level and at the right location(s).

    Cons

    Very few non-Europeans make it to top management. Still a very French/Italian culture company. Company continues to manage the same old fashioned way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need new (young) blood in management. The company needs to be more forward looking and take chances as needed.

    Pros

    Multi-cultural atmosphere. I learned so much in the work environment at ST, it has helped me a great deal moving forward.

    Cons

    The CEO retired and the replacement was not there for the employees, things changed and the company values were not upheld.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to listen to your employees, take notice when one of them is unhappy or if the department is having issues. If you are pro-active then the group will be very productive. It's when concerns fall on deaf ears that employees get discouraged and then find work elsewhere.

    Excellent benefits, but not much of a future in the US

    Pros

    As a European company, their benefits are outstanding compared to many others. They still offer a pension plan, offer more vacation days that most, and their 401k match is not only excellent but is also fully vested from day one.

    Cons

    ST has been steadily decreasing their presence in the United States starting with the closure of both of their large manufacturing facilities in Dallas and Phoenix followed by the closure of several smaller design centers. Not much prospect for future growth within the US.

    I worked at STMicroelectronics

    Pros

    The technical level in ST gives you the possibility to grow from professional point of view, if you you want to.

    Cons

    No matter how good the device are the management will screw the business sooner or later.
    It's a company where the high level management never pays for the mistakes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take responsibility for the mistakes and make managers paying and not just employees.

    Pros

    good pay, good benefits, a lot of paid time off, compressed work weeks, not a lot of overtime expected, education benefits are good.

    Cons

    dealing with the manager is a very political, shift to shift competition and shift to shift blame is very high, good-ol-boy system is in play.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need a better training program for the managers. The exit packages were very generous making all the employees happy.
