    Pros

    The technical level in ST gives you the possibility to grow from professional point of view, if you you want to.

    Cons

    No matter how good the device are the management will screw the business sooner or later.
    It's a company where the high level management never pays for the mistakes.

    Advice to Management

    Take responsibility for the mistakes and make managers paying and not just employees.

  2. Good benefits, poor vision

    Pros

    Direct managers take in consideration their employees, work/life balance is good, payed time off is more than adequate.
    401k matching and pension plan.

    Cons

    Lacking formalization and internal information exchange, limited possibilities to grow, frequent reorganizations show confusion in the upper management. Following every single wish of the customer doesn't always lead to better products.

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate on fewer things and do those things well. It's better to be masters at something than average at everything.

  3. Eye-opening to the way business operate while not having a major presence in the United States.

    Pros

    Very international and if your position allow it lots of interaction with management from different Business units. Lots of advantages out of the work and great work-life balance.

    Cons

    Compensation plan very bad in France and career progression very slow. Bounuses are very small or inexistent at lower levels.

    Advice to Management

    Management promotion is very much based on seniority and age rather than in meritocracy. There should be a program for young talent to promote young management.

  6. Great place to work, although long term stability seems to always be in question

    Pros

    Amazing work/life balance, great benefits, good company that cares for its employees

    Don't abandon the American workforce, when the economy comes back you may be too small to compete

    Pros

    good pay, good benefits, a lot of paid time off, compressed work weeks, not a lot of overtime expected, education benefits are good.

    Cons

    dealing with the manager is a very political, shift to shift competition and shift to shift blame is very high, good-ol-boy system is in play.

    Advice to Management

    They need a better training program for the managers. The exit packages were very generous making all the employees happy.

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

    Cons

    Organization restructuring too frequent with increasing job insecurity.

    Advice to Management

    KLA 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.
