    Good benefit package until plant is shut down by European politics.

    Tough management, no family time, pro-European.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Carlo Bozotti only cares about what the investors say, no vision.

    Pros

    Relaxed attitude to work hours, good vacation and pay, very diverse portfolio of products enables many career move options, large diversity of world sites gives opportunity for travel and job advancement.

    Cons

    Very euro-centric management, difficult to break into "inner circle" if not close to European HQ, diversity of product portfolio can often seem to make strategic decision making chaotic with no overall direction for company. This often translates to job uncertainty at the individual level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diversify power structure, bring in outside managers with new ideas.

    Pros

    Compressed Workweeks, decent cafeteria, hilarious international Q&A board.

    Cons

    Poor reviews. As a tech, credit seemed to be given to those who sent the most emails versus those output the most work. Better raises are given to people who do zero work but make themselves the most vocal, while the others pick up the slack.

    Don't count on hard work getting you appreciation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay the good employees better, trim the fat (literally), and quality employees might stick around

    Pros

    Great place to learn about international business, working with teams and customers in different regions

    Cons

    It's a EU company which means the priority will always be EU. Also, it is very difficult to grow in this company unless you are very close to upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be more focus on building new talent as well as maintaining creativity and energy. It would help if there was HR presence to track employee satisfaction in the US.

    Pros

    Culture is accomodating and kind, unlike hyper-aggressive American companies.
    Opportunities to change division/group/location, and generally supportive

    Cons

    Pay is not high, don't expect any stock appreciation
    If giant company is for you, maybe ok place. But don't expect to change the company by yourself

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Market is moving quickly, how to counter Mediatek, Broadcom and other faster companies?

    Pros

    European company which is in a way a different environment compared to US companies , flexible time-off which allows for your own planning of vacation, good technology - owner of one of the biggest fabs and R&D centers, global mobility - one can choose to work in different sites throughout the world, pretty good package of benefits in US.

    Cons

    Salary not as high as in other companies. Not good attitude towards employee education-there is always something that stands in the way of getting professional courses, this is not a priority for the company. Failure of management to find the right way of motivating people, most often they would decide that they just have to work because they're paid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do your job in a way that would benefit the company and the people really working for it

    Pros

    The multicultural work environment and the possibilities to explore different areas within the company. Global mobility is promoted. Flexible work hours and environment. The company is very sensitive to environmental issues. Diverse portfolio, extensive IP libraries and many different technologies allows us to address many different markets and customers.

    Cons

    dealing with the main divisions in Europe (9 hour time difference)
    bad internal communication specifically regarding organization changes.Management style in downturns is very demotivating. Sometimes the decentralized organization causes in effectivity such as parallel development of similar products. Bad time to market causes sometimes a big disadvantage compared to competitors. bloated organization is hindering fast reaction to new market requirements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the internal communication

    Pros

    as long experience will bring you easier working enviornment; ST is ranking No 1 in Europe still, has solid fab and key ctm relationship. European company won't lay off people very often, especially in ST, you won't feel high pressure.

    Cons

    internal politics, management not clear direction discourage people work here. Strong internal relationship also make the company not very professional. the org is not stable these years, it's hard to have focus from all parties, and plus internal conflicts play important role, it is just difficult to make things. you will always see the real hard worker never get right treatment, and the best speaker can always get best reward.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    empower right person, improve efficiency of management, lessen show up work, respect front line employee and reward them.
