    I worked at STMicroelectronics full-time

    Pros

    > Good work-life balance, emergency customer situations that require more work hours are less frequent.

    Cons

    >> Salary isn't competitive, once a person begins to rise in the organization.
    >> Company culture is not enforced properly across all sites - some sites don't have a mandatory policy of team outings, cultural events, etc.
    >> Frequent internal reorganizations make employees feel concerned about whether the top management really knows what they are doing.
