    I worked at STMicroelectronics as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    The local design site culture is professional but informal, a small, tightly knit team of Asic Designers, but backed by a robust set of ASIC design tools, flows, libraries, and expertise from their other corporate locations. Immediate management was accessible and easy to work with.

    Cons

    The local design site seemed like a distant outpost from the corporate center. Critical project resources were shared across multiple time-zones and continents, and required frequent negotiation to get through critical resource crunches.

    Advice to Management

    During the time I worked there, corporate management did not have a big presence, and it was not clear how our site contributed into the corporate vision or growth strategy.

    I worked at STMicroelectronics full-time (More than 10 years)

    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 Management

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


  8. Overall, it was a fantastic experience, the people are friendly and welcoming.

    I worked at STMicroelectronics full-time (More than 10 years)

    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 Management

    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.
