    Personal Growth. A lot of freedom. Work with talented people from all across the globe. Innovative technology and large production capacity. Good benefits. Ability to invent yourself. Open communication with local management.

    Cons

    Poor direction from Europe for USA. Slow moving on technology changes. Organization needs better definition and support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Greater value of dedicated employees. Faster product introduction and adapting to market changes. Better coordination between regions.

    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.

    I worked at STMicroelectronics as an intern (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    It is a big company which works in several fields from silicon technology to computer vision to augmented reality. It is always looking for internships and the selection process is quite easy.

    Cons

    I found little help from the company employees, and I had to solve many issues by my own. Moreover, there is little communication among various offices and seats, causing waste of time if working on overlapping projects. The personal work is not rewarded as it could be, and managers tend to control their employees very much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Discover the skilled people you have inside, maybe just normal employees; invest more on long-running research

    I worked at STMicroelectronics as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good work-life balance, slow-paced work environment, good job security from what I can observe during my internship there, helpful colleagues are always there to guide you.

    Cons

    Inefficient HR department, filing an unpaid leave is always a hassle even with everything computerized. Compensation and benefits are subpar compared to other competitors. The company looks like a place for old-timers to stay down and wait for retirement. The workspace is so cramped with so many people working in such a small confined office. Can't even stretch your arms without touching the person next to you... And the lift capacity for the building is so small (always congested during peak hours) :<

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix up the HR department. Listen to your employees more. Reorganize the office layout and upgrade the lift capacity of the building. Lay out a clear career path for young bloods. Otherwise they will look elsewhere for greener pastures.
