    I have been working at STMicroelectronics full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You get freedom to do the work you desire even get to work form scratch. Cooperative work culture. The cause of such freedom is sluggish senior staff. So, basically you are left on your own. Thus, this place is good as long as you self-driven.

    Cons

    No recognition of Talent. Highly political environment. Mostly good people leave ST at some point of time, then ST rewards and retains the sluggish bunch.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to change drastically. Currently, ST is going towards a dead halt.

    Pros

    When you work at STM, you got the opportunity to access a very interesting domain of technology. Every day you are learning something new ...
    the work environment is cute and friendly.

    Cons

    Some projects arrived in a critical path and you find yourself working under stress (project value : some Million of dollars). Hurry up, do your job quickly but do it correctly ...

    Pros

    work life balance is good

    Cons

    you get to learn only politics, nothing in techanical.
    managers are making it hell

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    remove the managers layer if you want to get your work from engineers.
    managers dont let the engineers work. they drug you down.
    every manager is inferior about his future, ask them to work proactively.

    I worked at STMicroelectronics full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked for a tyrant of a director, but I believed in his leadership. He was on-point, confident and intelligent in terms of how the department's direction should move towards. As a boss, he was fair with his staff and despite his tough, moody exterior, an all-round nice guy. 5 years under his wing, my learning curve was extremely high with several growth and travel opportunities.

    During his leadership, the department's culture was intense and pressure-cooker like, but it was efficient. It was rare that one had to stay back for overtime, as long as all urgencies were attended to and prior arrangements made. He walked the talk and usually leaves the office by 7pm, and did not expect staff to stay for overtime unnecessarily.

    On-site culture is that of an extended family. Approach the relevant teams in the right manner, and they would be willing to explain and teach you the relevant processes and procedures.

    Cons

    Current leadership is overly flexible, with no fix stand or direction. Work life balance is encouraged but it is not shown by example with follow-up e-mails from senior management being issued after hours for operational matters, even up till 3am. The team works mainly off e-mails with a daily average of 500 e-mails received.

    Compensation, perks and benefits are definitely not one of the best in the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at employees as part of your thinking work-force (especially the good ones), not just mindless robots. People are three-dimensional with many aspects, strengths and weaknesses to them. A great leader is one who is able to read and manage their staff accordingly.
