    Pros

    Better than average pay, senior management treats employees with respect and are highly competent in their management skills. Excellent leverets to long term employees with flex vacation time. Interesting work with a Euro peon culture being French & Italian owned.

    Cons

    Not many promotions if you come in as a mid level engineer. Also, since some managers come from Europe they need USA training on HR rules but that not a big issue.

    Advice to Management

    none. Thanks!

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    It 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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Site 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 Management

    Consider 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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Site 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 Management

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

    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.

    I have been working at STMicroelectronics as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    I had a great internship in The Portland Group, which used to be part of STMicroelectronics at that time. There were a lot of great people to learn from and interesting challenging tasks.

    Cons

    Company is not in its best shape for last few years, therefore there are limited career opportunities. Hopefully that would change in the future.
