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

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    the overall benefits package is comparable to the ones offered by other companies. if you are an engineer it's not a bad company to work for.

    Cons

    limited career opportunities, lack of fairness in promoting/recognizing people, lack of management support for career development/growth.

    Advice to Management

    more communication, support for career development/growth.

    spend less time engaged in company politics!

    Former Employee - Principal Engineer in Santa Clara, CA
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    * Working environment is relaxed and comfortable
    * Compensation is very competitive to other companies with a good bonus on base salary
    * Could be a good place to learn and gain knowledge
    * Big company that can afford to tackle big markets and product lines
    * Did not lay off as aggressively as other companies during the recession

    Cons

    * Very political in terms of career advancement
    * European management is a disaster. No clear vision of what they want to do. Very slow in taking critical decisions. Can let valuable people leave the company easily.
    * There are good peers but also more than what could afforded of mediocre engineers

    Advice to Management

    When a product fails due to management mistakes, managers should be affected and not engineers. In order to compete with American companies change has to happen at the top.

    Pros

    Work-life balance was fine for a Silicon Valley company. Employees didn't work the crazy hours that were typical for Silicon Valley.

    Cons

    Management was largely clueless and confused about its future strategy. Poor communiction skills - employees weren't kept informed. They had cool technology early on in the company's history, but ran out of ideas.

    Pros

    high tech enviroment, good engineers, large company

    Cons

    obsolete systems, poor leadership, awful career path for female employees (only 1 female director in USA, the HR director, what a cliche').

    I worked at STMicroelectronics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great customers for their ASIC business unit. Better than average compute resource and EDA licence access. Europe/US/India work very well together on same project.

    Cons

    Terrible review process, strictly curve based. Losing money and laying off whole locations. Very averse to telecommuting.

    Advice to Management

    Finish off the STE fiasco.

    I have been working at STMicroelectronics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work is not hectic. Benefits like 401k matching 4% (increases with more years of experience in the company) and retirement benefits are good.

    Cons

    Very slow company, takes long time to take decisions. If you are working at high cost center like in US, the sword is always hanging on top of you. No layoff in France(HQ), so other sites get the axe. Crappy management. Salary is not at par with the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Advice will not work, they are bound by management in France.
