    Very good company to work for

    Design Engineer (Current Employee) Edinburgh, Scotland

    ProsHuge international presence, many experienced engineers, very good equipment available. ST have their own technology line making them leaders amongst only a few semiconductor companies overall.

    ConsEven though big company, which implies stable employment prospects, they tend to have vast human resource. That is often pointed to when cuts are required to improve financial position.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep relations to academia as an excellent source of qualified employees. Allow for more opportunities for knowledge sharing between sites through expatriate schemes.

    Been a great place to work shame it is coming to an end

    Senior Principal Engineer (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat people with a lot of different activities and skill sets all in one place. Rather than moving companies for a change of role you just transferred internally.

    ConsThere are a lot of people with too much power and not enough knowledge making company wide decisions and mandating things on others.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the faultless management of the company.

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

    Good work-life balance, but somewhat chaotic software practices

    Software Engineer (Current Employee) Bristol, England

    ProsIt is a good family-friendly place to work. The people are great and you get opportunity to work new and cutting-edge hardware.
    This is a large company with many sites throughout the world and plenty of opportunity work with and travel to colleagues abroad.

    ConsSoftware engineering follows an outdated "waterfall" methodology, which is better suited to hardware development.
    The large organisation can lead to frustrating bureaucracy and poor communication

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good internship opportunity

    Blue-collarthe Finished Goods Store (Former Employee) Crolles (France)

    ProsThe salary is good for an internship, and the working schedule in the finished goods store is quite good since we did not work on the factory schedule.

    ConsThe work was quite repetitive and the obsolete informatic system did not help. The global organisation of the company seems quite bad too, but I guess I wasn't involved enough in it to really comprehend it.

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