Good Company in Europe but perhaps not the right place to work in the US

Pros

People are easy going and not much work pressure , typical European culture.

Cons

Lot of French and Italian politics around you and you would invariably be a victim of their favoritism .US centers are considered as an overhead and never given their due importance . Management locally is sluggish and spineless with no say in company's decisions . Overall not the best place to work if you want to have a bright career . Just about ok if you want to hang in there with an attitude of old time government employee .

Advice to Management

I don't think Management needs an advice as they anyways have nothing in their hands , the best they do is hire people locally . All the decisions are taken from Europe .

    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 Management

    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

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

    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.
