    I worked at STM as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    STM is a BIG organization, which means if you do well they'll keep you busy. No delays in getting paid, well-run management, lots of resources.

    Cons

    Like many large organization, things evolve slowly... very slowly sometimes. Forget Jquery, Rails and mobile apps. This is the 1990's. They still use Windows XP, no need to say more.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up! Learn about SCRUM and Agile development, hire young hotshots and let go of the bureaucracy. You'll be amazed at how things will get done.

    Pros

    Social advantages
    Pension funds
    Vacancy days + sick days
    Salary

    Cons

    Bad management
    Dictatorship
    No recognization
    Advancement isn't as easy as they describe it to be
    Feels like you are just a number in this company
    No challenges
    Management plays cat and dog with the employees and vice versa
    They adopting a hard line on things that don't matter instead of taking care of things that actually do matter
    You have no power to change anything, you're opinion is not valued and they never take the time to consult you on decisions that have impacts on you. If they do, it's only to be able to say they consulted you but your points will not be considered. They do it just to look good.
    They divide the employees by their management instead of uniting them.
    Often, the environment of work is not healthy.
    No transparency. They make sure to hide the information or they only leak it slowly slowly. Often they will lie because they are not transparent.
    They tell employees in big meetings to follow the procedures but when it's time to work they hate it when you follow them. But if you don't and you have an accident, they suspend you without pay before the investigation is done.
    They have the worst crisis management I have ever seen.

    Advice to Management

    A lot of work to be done on the human side of it. The operational management should all have a formation on how to approach employees and how to deal with conflicts. They are really bad at managing crisis so they should seriously think on how to improve the way they handle problems, conflicts, crisis, etc. They should involve employees more and make sure the information flow is excellent. Hiding information is not really a good way to manage. They should involve the employees in a more serious manner not just for the sake of saying we consulted you. Employee's opinion are heard but have no impact ever. Actually, they should just work on all the cons I wrote.
