    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits + still a lot of good people and good end products. Lots of opportunity still---if you are French or Italian.

    Cons

    Company culture and worker-friendliness is in decline and the company has intractable labor problems being able to downsize in France.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cutting investment and trim real waste. Tell the French Government that unless hard choices are made *over there* that the company is doomed to ultimate failure.

    Return to treating *all* good employees as valued assets instead of trying to "force" a bell curve in place in the Americas that does not apply to an environment where most bad workers are long gone.

    I have been working at STMicroelectronics full-time

    Pros

    Excellent people to work with locally and on project team, Cool exciting projects, Excellent skill sets and capabilities in general among engineers in US,France, and India.
    Decent benefits- 401k matching , vacation, health etc

    Cons

    Company makes lots of decisions that benefit the French side of the ocean :-)
    Since they are French one could see why. However the highest level of management - CEO etc seem very lacking in the strategic skills to run such a large company, This is reflected in their share price.

    Hindered engineering efforts by not providing the right tools in the right quantities - aalwways a struggle to have enough EDA licenses at key junctures in program.

    Advice to Management

    Make up your minds!
