    Potential to be a great company consistently messed up by lack of leadership, strategy & direction.

    Product Marketing Manager (Former Employee) Santa Clara, CA (US)

    ProsFor someone outside of Europe, a fantastic place for multi-cultural experience, particularly for business owners wanting experience dealing with international organizations.
    The guys in Grenoble lot better than rest of the Europe.
    If the BUs put their determination behind something, wonders can happen. eg., MEMs, power mgmt, etc.

    ConsThe Director level mgmt needs a forklift change. Most have scant idea how to run/grow a business.
    The leadership has no idea how to create a strategy to run a huge org; once in a while a hit comes along to save grace.
    Huge dependence at all levels on who you know to get the job done. There are hardly any processes to run a multi-segment businesses.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTo succeed, stop laying off US employees & remove the guarantees of lifelong-jobs in Europe. Start instilling high-performing leadership in key BUs to demonstrate performance based success.
    Reward based on performance metrics as opposed to seniority & who you know.
    Ask INSEAD to do a case study on why TI which was at the same position as STM has been able to do so successfully & implement the recommendations.

    A company with stable market but less career opportunities

    DSP Systems Design Engineer (Former Employee) Singapore (Singapore)

    ProsJob security is good in general; you can have a good work-life balance; not too much pressure and you can enjoy the flexible work environment.

    ConsThe challenge is normally you cannot find challenge easily here; in general it's difficult to find passion in your work, so I won't recommend it to young people with ambitions and energy.

    ProsInternational company: career evolution, compensation and benefits, good working conditions on some sites. Used to be a friendly company and atmosphere.

    ConsNot anymore a market leading company, reacting to the market conditions with lay-offs.
    Failed to innovate.
    No HR strategy, no trainings, not taking care of human resources anymore.
