    Pros

    When you work at STM, you got the opportunity to access a very interesting domain of technology. Every day you are learning something new ...
    the work environment is cute and friendly.

    Cons

    Some projects arrived in a critical path and you find yourself working under stress (project value : some Million of dollars). Hurry up, do your job quickly but do it correctly ...

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

    Pros

    For someone outside of Europe, a fantastic place for multi-cultural experience, particularly for business owners wanting experience dealing with international organizations.
    The guys in Grenoble lot better than rest of the Europe.
    If the BUs put their determination behind something, wonders can happen. eg., MEMs, power mgmt, etc.

    Cons

    The Director level mgmt needs a forklift change. Most have scant idea how to run/grow a business.
    The leadership has no idea how to create a strategy to run a huge org; once in a while a hit comes along to save grace.
    Huge dependence at all levels on who you know to get the job done. There are hardly any processes to run a multi-segment businesses.

    Advice to Management

    To succeed, stop laying off US employees & remove the guarantees of lifelong-jobs in Europe. Start instilling high-performing leadership in key BUs to demonstrate performance based success.
    Reward based on performance metrics as opposed to seniority & who you know.
    Ask INSEAD to do a case study on why TI which was at the same position as STM has been able to do so successfully & implement the recommendations.

    Pros

    People, diversity, benefits, mobility potential, European roots, travel, pension plan, good 401k matching, work life balance, cross functional tasks,

    Cons

    Slow to promote, minimal stock allowances, lower pay than competitors, salary increase just matches inflation, constant cost-cutting programs, not investing enough in US as French and Italian employees cannot be layer off.

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

    Pros

    Multi-cultural atmosphere. I learned so much in the work environment at ST, it has helped me a great deal moving forward.

    Cons

    The CEO retired and the replacement was not there for the employees, things changed and the company values were not upheld.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to listen to your employees, take notice when one of them is unhappy or if the department is having issues. If you are pro-active then the group will be very productive. It's when concerns fall on deaf ears that employees get discouraged and then find work elsewhere.

    Management too slow to make key decisions and invest for the future. Career progression not encouraged.

    Culture, management was great, overall leadership was excellent. Always room for growth opportunities. Forward thinking mfg style. Always looking to improve.

    Should have kept the US mfg facilities.
