New technology - great, management and promotions non existant

Imaging Applications (Former Employee)
Edinburgh, Scotland

I worked at STMicroelectronics full-time for more than 5 years

ProsLearning and using the latest technology

ConsManagement, HR that spouted the company line permanently - didnt listen to employees.
Complete dis-interest in recognising staff achievements - unless you were in the design team.

Lack of pay rises and promotions, lower grade staff had minimal increases, enough to keep them on the bottom of the band levels that was all.

Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to listen to your lower staff, feed that through your middle management and listen all the way up. Dont ignore your talent

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Right place if you are looking for bad people

Sr Digital Designer Engineer (Former Employee)
Milan (Italy)

I worked at STMicroelectronics full-time for more than 5 years

ProsSome groups work on the cutting edge developments, interesting if you work in those groups.
Otherwise it is just a permanent job with a bad salary

ConsNever met so many bad people in a single job environment. It seems some of them don't really go to
their office to work but just to fill their life up.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

A completely disfunctional organization

Engineer (Current Employee)
Milan (Italy)

I have been working at STMicroelectronics full-time for more than 10 years

ProsI talk here only about the digital sector, the one I work in.
Potentially one could do lots of interesting work in STM on leading edge projects.

ConsManagement has often really no idea of what it is doing from a technical point of view.
Lots of money are wasted on losing investments, such as CMOS technologies, only to preserve jobs in France and Italy, for political reasons.
Careers are often based on personal relationship and/or seniority, not on real merits.
It is also very difficult to remove unsuccessful managers, often they are left without real responsibilities, but keeping their salary.

Advice to Senior ManagementResign. Hoping substitutes are real businessmen, and not politicians in disguise.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good Company in Europe but perhaps not the right place to work in the US

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Santa Clara, CA (US)

I have been working at STMicroelectronics full-time for more than a year

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

ConsLot 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 Senior ManagementI 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, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
