I worked at STMicroelectronics

Pros

Pay not too bad. People within the project group are nice in general. Don't need to work like a slave like in some other company.

Cons

Management internal politics. Managers lack managerial skills, not to mention technical skills. Inefficient and ineffective cooperation between project groups (vendor and customer relationship) as there was no mutual trust. Good lead engineers left because of unsupportive work environment. In the end, project got canned and organization got reshuffled, managers replaced. In one instance, a manager from France who took over group was a total idiot, dismissed a good engineer, and eventually led the collapse of the whole group. Of course, after the damage is done, she returned home.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Go for management training and learn how to deal with people and peers appropriately. Know who are your gems in your staff and communicate more often.

    I have been working at STMicroelectronics

    Pros

    healthy work environment, laid back take it easy eurpoean mentality, I haven't worked anywhere else but i hear benefits and pay are pretty competitive.

    Cons

    management seems to lack direction, difficult to gain visibility for work done, dysfunctional and confusing organization with lots of overlapping functions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get away from the penny pinching attitude, most frequent travellers still don't have data cards and smart phone data plans. Emplyees are still forced to fly economy on 20+ hr flights to asia

    I worked at STMicroelectronics

    Pros

    Great place to learn about international business, working with teams and customers in different regions

    Cons

    It's a EU company which means the priority will always be EU. Also, it is very difficult to grow in this company unless you are very close to upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be more focus on building new talent as well as maintaining creativity and energy. It would help if there was HR presence to track employee satisfaction in the US.
