    ProsMulti national culture within organisation. Work closely with Europe and Asia counter part.

    ConsOrganization restructuring too frequent with increasing job insecurity.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKLA ACE XP used for retreiving fab data is outdated, waste of engineering resource & time to wait for data. Should replace with more powerful tool like JMP, spotfire to improve effectiveness in workplace.

    Best job ive had. Sad to see it go..

    Mfg Cell Lead/Peer Trainer Tech III (Current Employee)
    Phoenix, AZ

    ProsAwesome coworkers
    Clean site
    Lots of room for growth, if you choose to show initiative.
    There honestly wasnt much I didnt like about this job.

    ConsSite closures in Region Americas (Phoenix and Carrollton)

    Sad to see this place closing. STM is losing a lot of great knowledge, and a great group of employees

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider what youre doing to this company before its too late. I wouldnt be surprised if they start slipping lower on the top 10 semiconductor sites in the next few years, due to bad business decisions to keep the stakeholders happy.

    Equipment Technician III (Current Employee)
    Phoenix, AZ

    ProsIt has Great people. The pay is good. I have a sense of responsibility and acheivement in doing a good job.

    ConsSite is closing, my opinion is that it is due to the CEO and French and Italian governments subsidizing the plants in ther respective countries.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI have never had an issue with manangement, I have always been treated fairly and with respect. So nothing really too mention

    This is the best company I have ever worked for.

    Equipment Engineer (Current Employee)
    Phoenix, AZ

    ProsThe teams are fluid and dynamic, the best I have ever worked with. Opportunities are available for those willing to take the challenge and go the extra mile. We are somewhat spoiled at STM. That's an environment that motivates employees to strive for excellence.

    ConsShutting down, manufacturing operations in the US are moving overseas by the end of 2011.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt was a good run here in the US with STM manufacturing. Thank you for all the memories. I provided a good quality service, STM provided fair wage and afforded me a good standard of living.
