      I have been working at STMicroelectronics full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Very good work life balance & 401k matching. Empowering, trusting management style (few Asian-style micro-managers exist at ST), good health, dental, vision benefits. Working environment is about delivering results - how/where/when that is done is up to the individual employees, company listens to its key customers to drive product innovations and changes.

      Cons

      No employee stock purchase plan & no stock grants (which makes ST unlike many American tech companies). Salaries are average - typically lower than American peer companies. Promotions are unlikely if you are non-Italian/non-French and don't have > 15 years with the company (forcing top American performers to leave to attain advancements). Most upper management decisions are based in France/Italy (HQ).

      Advice to Management

      ST upper management knows they lack 2 important benefits especially to American employees - ESSP and stock grants. Not having these puts ST at a disadvantage versus your competitors in employee retention. So, implement an ESSP & award stock grants to the very employees that powered the company to record profits. Using those high profits in 2019 on stock buybacks is demotivating for individual ST employees and about...

        I have been working at STMicroelectronics full-time

        Pros

        Many nice people work here. Health benefits are good.

        Cons

        Very cheap and poorly managed. Highly bureaucratic and many people are motivated out of fear of losing their job . Takes forever to get anything done here. Salaries and benefits packages are not competitive compared to American companies.

        Advice to Management

        Focus on what's important. Stop micro-managing. Motivate and reward employees in a positive way so that they do the right thing and not just puppets to please upper management.

        I worked at STMicroelectronics full-time for more than 5 years

        Pros

        Some good people still here and in spite of weak upper management the company is sustainable. Good technical teams and marketing driven.

        Cons

        Unrealistic goals and need CEO change in my opinion and few Americans in Corporate Management. This is a very top down driven company that doesn’t listen well to the people at the lower levels.

        Advice to Management

        Take some management training courses because it will help you improve
