Pros

As a European company, their benefits are outstanding compared to many others. They still offer a pension plan, offer more vacation days that most, and their 401k match is not only excellent but is also fully vested from day one.

Cons

ST has been steadily decreasing their presence in the United States starting with the closure of both of their large manufacturing facilities in Dallas and Phoenix followed by the closure of several smaller design centers. Not much prospect for future growth within the US.

    Disapproves of CEO

    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.

    No opinion of CEO

    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.
