    Established organization, excellent benefits, lots of interesting stuff to work on.

    Like all big organizations a little bit slow to react to changes on the marketplace.

    STMicroelectronics is an excellent company. Excellent culture and values.

    Cons

    Nothing special to report. Very good company.

    Pros

    Individual contributors are very skilled and motivated. The company usually allows for a good degree of freedom in how we execute our work and are responsible for our results.
    In general there is more attention to the people than in other, pure american, companies

    Cons

    Management sometimes loses focus and top directives are not clear or not always coherent. It requires a lot of self-direction and self-motivation. Salary range is not always in line with local competitors (Arizona / Colorado / California)

    Advice to Management

    Make decisions and stick to them, unless they're proven wrong.

    I have been working at STMicroelectronics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    People are easy going and not much work pressure , typical European culture.

    Cons

    Lot of French and Italian politics around you and you would invariably be a victim of their favoritism .US centers are considered as an overhead and never given their due importance . Management locally is sluggish and spineless with no say in company's decisions . Overall not the best place to work if you want to have a bright career . Just about ok if you want to hang in there with an attitude of old time government employee .

    Advice to Management

    I don't think Management needs an advice as they anyways have nothing in their hands , the best they do is hire people locally . All the decisions are taken from Europe .

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    good place to work. nice people and opportunities to work on interesting projects with leading edge technologies. Very stable company.

    Cons

    ST is an European company, so the focus is in Europe and not in US. working here you feel you are very distant from the company

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in US presence. while we are a European company we need to keep reinforcing our presence in US where our customers and competitors operate

    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.
