    I worked at STMicroelectronics

    Pros

    Very friendly, supporting colleagues
    Allowed to explore things (and sometimes to try them live as well)
    You will not be sacked very easily
    If you want peace of mind without doing anything, it is the right place

    Cons

    No recognition of whatever you do
    Very poor pay scale. It is easy to get into the company with inflated pay scale. But once in, salary increment is just a peanut.
    Promotion? Don't ever think about it.
    Unless you are an annoyer you get nothing in return.

    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.
