Device Engineer

Device Engineer (Former Employee)
Rousset, Bouches-du-Rhône, Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur (France)

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

ProsThis company has great values (Corporate Social and Environmental Responsibility is enforced), and the management trully believes in these values. I started in this company and I learnt a ton. I was regularly offered new missions to keep on learning, to keep on moving. HR policies are among the best I have witenessed: transparency, communication, and most of the time good listening skills. Even the salaries and benefits are good (for the region I was working in).

ConsThere is no real high management; however, HR reps told me there was a plan to put in place a proper high potential system in place in the next few years.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe less techies, and more business oriented.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
