I have been working at STMicroelectronics as a contractor (less than an year)

Pros

Engineers are excellent and working very hard. The vacation policy is as flexible as European company can. You could take 4-5 weeks off in a row. MEMS is being dominated by STM worldwide.

Cons

Engineering talents suffer from mismanagement. Upper management cannot let redundant employees in Europe because of the tight labor environment. Therefore, STM carries all financial burdens to maintain more than 50K people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to learn how to boost morale

    Former Employee - Staff Engineer in San Jose, CA

    I worked at STMicroelectronics full-time (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.

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

    I have been working at STMicroelectronics full-time (more than an year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 .
