    I worked at STMicroelectronics full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good balance Work- Life, Not particularly demanding, it was a good place to start the career and learn.

    Cons

    Leadership has no Ideas. All the strategic choices made in the last 10 years were catastrophic ( let´s thinks about ST-Ericson). The actual board has lead the company from position number 3 to position number 13 into semiconductor ranking

    Advice to Management

    Not so Easy.. best suggestion would be get retired: perhaps the company would have still some chance to survive....It is truly a pity

    I have been working at STMicroelectronics full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    None. At most one can have a decent life/work balance, unless she is required to work during the weekends to meet a deadline.

    Cons

    If one has a minimum of interest in the quality of her work, this is one of the worst places to be.
    Instead of working to raise the level of efficiency, people are encouraged to work in a mechanical way, doing things manually, and to work long hours (not paid).
    Schedules are deceptively tight: chips (even simple ones) take many silicon versions to arrive to production, so one wonders why she has to work hard to produce something that most probably won't work.
    Moreover, as people fear the Division Chief, no middle manager wants to be responsible of a delay, and so they tend not to cooperate at all.

    Advice to Management

    Management is consciously bargaining the future of this company for their salary. I have no advice that they may really would like to follow.

    Lente évolution de salaire. Une entreprise sans stratégie, Une R&D en perdition. Un management Italien autoritaire. De nombreux cas de burn out dans les fonctions support.

    Beaucoup de talents et de compétences gâchés.

    La gestion façon pompier et court terme rend impossible l'innovation.

    Pros

    Work life balance last time but now getting from bad to worse.

    Cons

    Low salary, exploiting employees. Those who are on the performing side are usually loaded with more tasks. Those who cannot perform are left to rot but when it is annual increment time, the one who can perform better only gets 1-2% more compared to the rest.

    Advice to Management

    Change management

    Pros

    - Holiday numbers
    - Trainings on-demand

    Cons

    - Low salaries for new hires, golden cages for old employees
    - Career opportunities and professional growth are very limited
    - Frustrated / burned-out people
    - Very much outdated technologies and environment hostile to innovation (banking and security segment)
    - Badly structured and very much political
    - Old management focused on retirement bonuses rather than on company's growth
    - Continuous conflicts between management and employees

    I have been working at STMicroelectronics full-time

    Pros

    Can't think of any. I tried long and hard to come up with any positives about working for ST, but other than receiving a paycheck, I can't think of any.

    Cons

    Stagnant wages, poor management from top down, lack of concern for employees. Little to no regard for how the actions of management effect the lives of the people in the company.
