    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Edinburgh, Scotland

    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 have been working at STMicroelectronics full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I have been with STM for 11 years, a great company wihere very good in training and knowledge sharing, very good environment with slow paced but things are get done steady. Very systematic and you fear not to loss with your problem. Very low pressure and slowly people will help to get thing done when you are stuck.

    They are always in the front line of technology and petty much things can be learn. Most importantly, they seldom layoff people and try to keep the people within the company in case of downturn with many option. Very good place for those perfer stability and peaceful life.

    Cons

    Very complex organization and produces annoying political tension among organization some time. This company is very huge company with more than 50000 employees. It applies hybrid hierarchy where most of organization is controlled horizontally and vertically, provide full control but making easy things difficult sometime.

    Pay is in average range and AI is not that significant sometime.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    SImplify the organization size and its complexity but put more resource to area with greatest value and growth could bring this company to another level of achievement.

    I have been working at STMicroelectronics full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Im only speaking my own office. It's relatively "relaxing" environment, whereby you can don't need to work over time if you don't want to.

    Cons

    Career advancement seems to be limited, unless you are in the European office, due to the internal organization. Management also has differences motivating people.
