    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 Management

    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 Management

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    decent pay, good benefits. The european culture give you a lot vacation time. Awesome place if you want to get paid for not doing much.

    Cons

    internal Politics. Company is heavily europe centric and building an empire is high on every managers list. Too many people doing too little work.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce company's dependence on the euro. Don't try to improve the company's bottom line by keeping business expenses low.

    Pros

    It is generally a pleasant place to work and co-workers tend to be interesting individuals. The 401K and health benefits package is good and inexpensive. The site cafeteria is very good, and cheap. They are good about keeping new-ish computers and other tools updated for people to use. Considering the chemicals used in making semiconductors, the safety is very good.

    Cons

    Managers: Runs the gamut from great professionals to petty tyrants. The company culture does not seem to cultivate any uniformity there. Roll the dice. Vacation: They call the vacation package "flexible time off", but ST forces employees to take many hours/days of vacation at arbitrary times in a quarterly effort to make the books look good, even when the employees do not want to take off and do not have to take off for business reasons. Disciplinary action is threatened in writing against those who resist.

    Advice to Management

    For a Fench-Italian company operating 2 plants in the USA, moving all the plant operations offshore to China and dumping 2000 Americans on the street is not the way to grow business in the USA.

    Not much learning in Mid Career Phase, as too much legacy stuff ongoing. Management not keen on going ahead in new areas aggressively

    Advice to Management

    Try to reduce Team Size, Bring in more visibility and accountability. The infrastructure is wonderful, just some more activeness from Senior Managers and HR is required.
