    Employees Quit Leaders, Not Companies

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Singapore (Singapore)

    ProsI worked for a tyrant of a director, but I believed in his leadership. He was on-point, confident and intelligent in terms of how the department's direction should move towards. As a boss, he was fair with his staff and despite his tough, moody exterior, an all-round nice guy. 5 years under his wing, my learning curve was extremely high with several growth and travel opportunities.

    During his leadership, the department's culture was intense and pressure-cooker like, but it was efficient. It was rare that one had to stay back for overtime, as long as all urgencies were attended to and prior arrangements made. He walked the talk and usually leaves the office by 7pm, and did not expect staff to stay for overtime unnecessarily.

    On-site culture is that of an extended family. Approach the relevant teams in the right manner, and they would be willing to explain and teach you the relevant processes and procedures.

    ConsCurrent leadership is overly flexible, with no fix stand or direction. Work life balance is encouraged but it is not shown by example with follow-up e-mails from senior management being issued after hours for operational matters, even up till 3am. The team works mainly off e-mails with a daily average of 500 e-mails received.

    Compensation, perks and benefits are definitely not one of the best in the industry.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook at employees as part of your thinking work-force (especially the good ones), not just mindless robots. People are three-dimensional with many aspects, strengths and weaknesses to them. A great leader is one who is able to read and manage their staff accordingly.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good internship opportunity

    Blue-collarthe Finished Goods Store (Former Employee) Crolles (France)

    ProsThe salary is good for an internship, and the working schedule in the finished goods store is quite good since we did not work on the factory schedule.

    ConsThe work was quite repetitive and the obsolete informatic system did not help. The global organisation of the company seems quite bad too, but I guess I wasn't involved enough in it to really comprehend it.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Potential to be a great company consistently messed up by lack of leadership, strategy & direction.

    Product Marketing Manager (Former Employee) Santa Clara, CA

    ProsFor someone outside of Europe, a fantastic place for multi-cultural experience, particularly for business owners wanting experience dealing with international organizations.
    The guys in Grenoble lot better than rest of the Europe.
    If the BUs put their determination behind something, wonders can happen. eg., MEMs, power mgmt, etc.

    ConsThe Director level mgmt needs a forklift change. Most have scant idea how to run/grow a business.
    The leadership has no idea how to create a strategy to run a huge org; once in a while a hit comes along to save grace.
    Huge dependence at all levels on who you know to get the job done. There are hardly any processes to run a multi-segment businesses.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTo succeed, stop laying off US employees & remove the guarantees of lifelong-jobs in Europe. Start instilling high-performing leadership in key BUs to demonstrate performance based success.
    Reward based on performance metrics as opposed to seniority & who you know.
    Ask INSEAD to do a case study on why TI which was at the same position as STM has been able to do so successfully & implement the recommendations.
