    Pros

    Huge 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.

    Cons

    Even 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Great 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the faultless management of the company.

    I have been working at STMicroelectronics

    Pros

    It 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.

    Cons

    Software engineering follows an outdated "waterfall" methodology, which is better suited to hardware development.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

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

    Pros

    Good (but not great) Semiconductor company. If you are better than average you can truly shine at this company. Lots of opportunities to learn, travel, assume new responsibilities. Some very good mentoring. Good pay at the right level and at the right location(s).

    Cons

    Very few non-Europeans make it to top management. Still a very French/Italian culture company. Company continues to manage the same old fashioned way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need new (young) blood in management. The company needs to be more forward looking and take chances as needed.
