I worked at STMicroelectronics full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Individual contributors are very skilled and motivated. The company usually allows for a good degree of freedom in how we execute our work and are responsible for our results.
In general there is more attention to the people than in other, pure american, companies

Cons

Management sometimes loses focus and top directives are not clear or not always coherent. It requires a lot of self-direction and self-motivation. Salary range is not always in line with local competitors (Arizona / Colorado / California)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make decisions and stick to them, unless they're proven wrong.

    Pros

    good place to work. nice people and opportunities to work on interesting projects with leading edge technologies. Very stable company.

    Cons

    ST is an European company, so the focus is in Europe and not in US. working here you feel you are very distant from the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in US presence. while we are a European company we need to keep reinforcing our presence in US where our customers and competitors operate

    Excellent benefits, but not much of a future in the US

    I worked at STMicroelectronics

    Pros

    As a European company, their benefits are outstanding compared to many others. They still offer a pension plan, offer more vacation days that most, and their 401k match is not only excellent but is also fully vested from day one.

    Cons

    ST has been steadily decreasing their presence in the United States starting with the closure of both of their large manufacturing facilities in Dallas and Phoenix followed by the closure of several smaller design centers. Not much prospect for future growth within the US.
