Moorish, Government like, Not dynamic - good to retire to company

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at STMicroelectronics full-time

ProsRelaxed work atmosphere
No pressure
Run of the mill job
Balanced work - life

ConsNot agile
Not faced paced
Old archaic management with zero appetite for becoming dynamic and leading
If you point out mistakes you will be killed
Motto "Sust raho - mast raho"

Advice to Senior ManagementLook around, take a cue from leaders in the semiconductor space. If you cannot evolve meaningfully and break from 'France is my country - Italy is my country' to a really global go getter attitude then please just shut the dammn company down

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
