I worked at STMicroelectronics

Pros

Compressed Workweeks, decent cafeteria, hilarious international Q&A board.

Cons

Poor reviews. As a tech, credit seemed to be given to those who sent the most emails versus those output the most work. Better raises are given to people who do zero work but make themselves the most vocal, while the others pick up the slack.

Don't count on hard work getting you appreciation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay the good employees better, trim the fat (literally), and quality employees might stick around

    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
