    No better place for a budding engineer looking for hands-on learning!

    Design Engineer II (Former Employee)

    Pros1.) Excellent work environment
    2.) Some of the best HR practices I have seen in the industry. BTW, I am not the only one who swears by it. A bunch of my friends from ST who are working in other orgs. regularly praise the HR practices at ST.
    3.) Prompt recognition for excellence

    Cons1.) I think it is more of an industry issue that there is absence of structured product management practices which was evident at ST also.

    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.
