    Pros

    Everything is defined by processes. All processes are defined carefully. You have to get related training on anything before start working on it and trainings are prepared very very careful.

    Cons

    Processes might introduce overhead time to time.


  2. Great people and interactions.

    At your next company pick a strategy and stick to it. Hold people accountable for missing deadlines (one part was 2 years late).

    I worked at ST Ericsson - Global full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    great engineers at the Austin site. Very hard working people, great products developed and always with a really positive and can do attitude

    Lots of internal politics, senior management coming from different companies could not work together. kept sites open based on politic only.

    Pros

    Interesting products and seemingly cutting edge technology. However I wonder how they will do now that Apple is dominating and the OS market is narrow.

    Cons

    I was looking forward to working in a globally competitive company but they closed the offices in RTP just after the merger happened. Personally I think it was part of the plan all along.

    Advice to Management

    I'm sure they had good reasons for making the decisions they did and in fairness they gave a lot of notice.

    People are great. I thought working with Europeans would be somehow difficult, but it has been fine.

    Just that the company has had such a hard time getting into the market. Many layoffs.

    Pros

    Large and stable company. Good insurance package.

    Cons

    Not much compensation. No incentive. Limited opportunities to grow for employee. Lots of IT restrictions. Lots of engineering processes which engineers need to follow.

    Advice to Management

    Should provide more substantial incentive.

    Pros

    Interesting work. Global teams. Trust between peers. Good people to work with. Compasionate treatment during shutdown of affected operations in the USA.

    Cons

    Shifting work to low cost countries and loosing competency by choice. Power struggle between the top management of the two companies that form the joint venture: ST and Ericsson. Constant pressure in an ever decreasing project cycle.

    Advice to Management

    None
