    French and Italian based company. This ultimately led to the closing of all mfg sites in the US.

    Should have kept the US mfg facilities.

    I have been working at STMicroelectronics as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    I had a great internship in The Portland Group, which used to be part of STMicroelectronics at that time. There were a lot of great people to learn from and interesting challenging tasks.

    Cons

    Company is not in its best shape for last few years, therefore there are limited career opportunities. Hopefully that would change in the future.

    Pros

    Very nice company to work for. Great life/work balance. Encouraged to do innovative work. Travel to Europe.

    Cons

    The present CEO has not been a success. The company is becoming very insular (in my opinion). From being one of the top 3 semiconductor companies it is shrinking into a medium sized power and analog products company.

    Pros

    Awesome coworkers
    Clean site
    Lots of room for growth, if you choose to show initiative.
    There honestly wasnt much I didnt like about this job.

    Cons

    Site closures in Region Americas (Phoenix and Carrollton)

    Sad to see this place closing. STM is losing a lot of great knowledge, and a great group of employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider what youre doing to this company before its too late. I wouldnt be surprised if they start slipping lower on the top 10 semiconductor sites in the next few years, due to bad business decisions to keep the stakeholders happy.

    It has Great people. The pay is good. I have a sense of responsibility and acheivement in doing a good job.

    Site is closing, my opinion is that it is due to the CEO and French and Italian governments subsidizing the plants in ther respective countries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have never had an issue with manangement, I have always been treated fairly and with respect. So nothing really too mention

    I have been working at STMicroelectronics

    Pros

    The teams are fluid and dynamic, the best I have ever worked with. Opportunities are available for those willing to take the challenge and go the extra mile. We are somewhat spoiled at STM. That's an environment that motivates employees to strive for excellence.

    Cons

    Shutting down, manufacturing operations in the US are moving overseas by the end of 2011.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It was a good run here in the US with STM manufacturing. Thank you for all the memories. I provided a good quality service, STM provided fair wage and afforded me a good standard of living.
