    Pros

    Culture, management was great, overall leadership was excellent. Always room for growth opportunities. Forward thinking mfg style. Always looking to improve.

    Cons

    French and Italian based company. This ultimately led to the closing of all mfg sites in the US.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should have kept the US mfg facilities.

    I have been working at STMicroelectronics as an intern for 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.

    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 full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Lots to learn if one really wants to.
    Great minds at the top level. They thrive to innovate.
    Provides over-comfort zone to employees, very relaxed culture => Not a good sign for freshers.

    Cons

    Lower level employees crib a lot about their pay.
    Strong negative image of the company among lower level employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't fear taking risks. Find an alternative to FDSOI before ST gets into another trouble like the losses due to ST-Ericsson.
