    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.

    I have been working at STMicroelectronics full-time (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.
