    Former Employee - Principal Engineer in Ottawa, ON (Canada)

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

    Pros

    Great technology, working with tier one suppliers and customers, exciting projects and products. Smart people to work with. Fair and decent employer with some of the best employee benefits around. Opportunity to learn.

    Cons

    Ingrained silo-mentality; not much cross-pollination between different divisions. Very hard to break into higher level management if you are not Italian or French. Internecine civil war between these fractions. Unnecessary layers of management. Company is treated as a social service by the French and Italian governments which are part owners, resulting in massive employment levels in those countries. Failures are not sanctioned. Cuts made in other parts of the world, impacting bottom line. High level decisions are often made based on political and economic realities of France and Italy, not on what is best for the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a German or American CEO. Welcome bidirectional communication with employees. Take risks. Get off the government funding – it comes with too many strings attached. Get rid of nepotism, reward excellence.

    Pros

    Good work life balance and benefits.
    Good training from knowledgeable supervisors.
    Support for ideas if you got the right manager.

    Cons

    Slow and sometimes unclear progression.
    Semiconductor industry has little room for growth without major restructuring. Need to re-focus in light of competition from China.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restructure properly and implement the right changes and not just for the sake of restructuring.
