Former Employee - Principal Engineer in San Jose, CA

I worked at STMicroelectronics full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Very nice company to work for. Great life/work balance. Encouraged to do innovative work. Travel to Europe.

Cons

The present CEO has not been a success. The company is becoming very insular (in my opinion). From being one of the top 3 semiconductor companies it is shrinking into a medium sized power and analog products company.

    Benefit plan is not so good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Current Employee - Applications Engineer in Santa Clara, CA

    I have been working at STMicroelectronics full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good technical class of people to work with.

    Cons

    Very poor management for North America Operation. Management from Geneva are completely disconnected from North America region. So growth and future are skeptical if you are located in this region.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not close sites by looking at financial numbers. Management must see the potential or capabilities of the product. Number will automatically increase when product will go to market in a larger volume. DO not hesitate to try new thing. Every companies is doing that now. Intel changed its face from tradiation Microprocessor to SOcs and tablets, nvidia started makinng CPU, Microsoft entered more and more into hardware so ST should think beyond its MEMS and microcontrollers.
