Possibility to learn and grow

Staff Engineer (Current Employee)

I have been working at STMicroelectronics full-time for more than 8 years

ProsPossibility to learn a lot thanks to internal know-how and many different training programs. Your work is often linked to business and you may produce an important impact on products. Good culture and values.

ConsThe quite complex organization made by several levels ofte implies that too many people have to approve before starting an initiative. Compensations are often not directly linked to actual skills, seniority and produced results.
