    Pros

    We always turned a great product. The company was like a big family. Compensation and benefits packages were above average for the area.

    Cons

    The facility was older and no upgrades on the horizon. There was always a cyclic focus on cost and would come and go frequently. Doubts about the plant staying open and finally closed.

    Advice to Management

    I would have said to invest more on the location. The factory turned the best yielding products in the company consistently. Should have expanded operations in the US instead of offshoring.

    Pros

    Strong technology company. Good working environment and benefits. People are friendly and are willing to help to others so projects move forward at a good pace. Semiconductor process, fabrication, Wafer&chip test, SOC/chip validation etc. are strengths.

    Cons

    At times slow in making decisions. Internal priority-conflict between teams. Competition is quick and so STMicro needs to be very cognizant of that fact.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on things that are working. Motivate people with good direction.

    Pros

    Salaries and benefits were very good and hard to meet or beat in any other employer

    Cons

    Decisions by top senior management to totally close the manufacturing function let over 2,000 employees go and sent the work to Singapore. Thanks sooooo much. So much for career stability.

    Advice to Management

    Get a long term strategy for the company and try to stick with it.

    Pros

    Good benefit package until plant is shut down by European politics.

    Cons

    Tough management, no family time, pro-European.

    Advice to Management

    Carlo Bozotti only cares about what the investors say, no vision.

    Pros

    healthy work environment, laid back take it easy eurpoean mentality, I haven't worked anywhere else but i hear benefits and pay are pretty competitive.

    Cons

    management seems to lack direction, difficult to gain visibility for work done, dysfunctional and confusing organization with lots of overlapping functions.

    Advice to Management

    get away from the penny pinching attitude, most frequent travellers still don't have data cards and smart phone data plans. Emplyees are still forced to fly economy on 20+ hr flights to asia

    Pros

    decent pay, good benefits. The european culture give you a lot vacation time. Awesome place if you want to get paid for not doing much.

    Cons

    internal Politics. Company is heavily europe centric and building an empire is high on every managers list. Too many people doing too little work.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce company's dependence on the euro. Don't try to improve the company's bottom line by keeping business expenses low.

    Pros

    It is generally a pleasant place to work and co-workers tend to be interesting individuals.

    The 401K and health benefits package is good and inexpensive.

    The site cafeteria is very good, and cheap.

    They are good about keeping new-ish computers and other tools updated for people to use.

    Considering the chemicals used in making semiconductors, the safety is very good.

    Cons

    Managers: Runs the gamut from great professionals to petty tyrants. The company culture does not seem to cultivate any uniformity there. Roll the dice.

    Vacation: They call the vacation package "flexible time off", but ST forces employees to take many hours/days of vacation at arbitrary times in a quarterly effort to make the books look good, even when the employees do not want to take off and do not have to take off for business reasons. Disciplinary action is threatened in writing against those who resist.

    Advice to Management

    For a Fench-Italian company operating 2 plants in the USA, moving all the plant operations offshore to China and dumping 2000 Americans on the street is not the way to grow business in the USA.
