    Former Employee - Sr Digital Designer Engineer in Milan (Italy)

    I worked at STMicroelectronics full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some groups work on the cutting edge developments, interesting if you work in those groups.
    Otherwise it is just a permanent job with a bad salary

    Cons

    Never met so many bad people in a single job environment. It seems some of them don't really go to
    their office to work but just to fill their life up.

    Current Employee - Engineer in Milan (Italy)

    I have been working at STMicroelectronics full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I talk here only about the digital sector, the one I work in.
    Potentially one could do lots of interesting work in STM on leading edge projects.

    Cons

    Management has often really no idea of what it is doing from a technical point of view.
    Lots of money are wasted on losing investments, such as CMOS technologies, only to preserve jobs in France and Italy, for political reasons.
    Careers are often based on personal relationship and/or seniority, not on real merits.
    It is also very difficult to remove unsuccessful managers, often they are left without real responsibilities, but keeping their salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Resign. Hoping substitutes are real businessmen, and not politicians in disguise.

    I have been working at STMicroelectronics

    Pros

    Nobody will ever get fired
    Safe environment to experiment
    Work life balance
    Salary every month

    Cons

    Nothing is time-bound
    Pays the lowest possible on the market, no perks except for directors
    No development nor career opportunities except for directors
    Eternally cutting costs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less politics and more leadership. Hire competent people, don't be afraid of smart brains. If you want to gain market share, hire real sales and marketing professionals, don't let engineers take these positions

    I have been working at STMicroelectronics

    Pros

    Lots of free time (for those who wants to get salary for doing nothing).
    Supportive HR.

    Cons

    Avg. salary hike (very nominal since last 2 years)
    If you have 4+ year of experience but you don't know dirty politics, you are in a big mess.
    No growth as managers do not leave ST.
    No learning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advise for Middle Management : Do not consider people as fool, they have got better brain.

    Advise for Top Management: Please put a watchdog for the malpractices being executed by Middle Management.

    Former Employee - Senior Design Engineer in New Delhi (India)
    Former Employee - Senior Design Engineer in New Delhi (India)

    I worked at STMicroelectronics

    Pros

    Very less and simple work, even non-technical persons can also do the technical work at ST. Safe haven for inefficient managers and engineers for longer stay. Less availability of good vlsi engineers in New Delhi area therefore there is job security.

    Cons

    Most of the immediate supervisors/managers are inefficient therefore they always support their inefficient team members for their own job security and growth.
    Mostly promotions and good salary hike are given to least performer and inefficient employees causing best performer to leave the company.
    Knowledge of dirty politics is required for better growth and job security.
    Not recommended to work for more than 4 years else he/she will become jack of all trades and master of none.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The senior management should replace 95% of middle management.
    The team members should do appraisal to their immediate supervisor.

    Going downhill.

    I have been working at STMicroelectronics

    Pros

    Good culture. Understanding of time off with family, good benefits and salary. Decent bonuses, sometimes.

    Cons

    Lousy raises for the past several years. Few stock grants available. Multiple changes in senior level management and organisations with no cognisance of the devastating effects said changes will add to design in terms of risk, cycle time, and general errors have virtually guaranteed an environment where poor quality will be the norm.

    Promotions based more upon politics and schmoozing than on technical competence and management ability, and the results of this are showing, will only get worse with odd reorganizations underway.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Incorporate more technical people into management positions, and/or a structure where designers' voices and concerns are heard. Place has really gone downhill these past few years, with lots of highly skilled people now looking for the exits.
