    I have been working at ST Electronics (Singapore) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Understanding colleagues which tend to help one another to achieve the target

    - Average salary and benefits, not absolutely bad but not that good either

    Cons

    - Management are living in their own world. Mid - level management having the mindset that they are running the company as their own instead of for the organization.

    - Unrealistic expectation forced upon engineers and overload them with many different work and projects

    - The management seem to be unable to embrace new technologies and have a million ways to put you down but when customers are happy with your product, they sing another story altogether and wish to "develop your work further".

    Advice to Management

    Those that have worked through the years and have raised up to a certain management position, please embrace the fact you had also once grit your teeth and climbed up to where you are. Dont kill off those beneath you just because you think you are the best and you run the whole company when you dont even own it.
