    Poor Management Team in planning and execution, very limited opportunity in career advancement

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsReasonable good benefit. Relative stable amount of AWS and Variable bonus expected yearly, regardless of market volatility. Good work-life balance.

    ConsA lot of training programs, but that is being discouraged to practise for work and not really useful for future career advancement. Culture that reward sweet talk people, and not for people with good working quality. Too much focus on seniority. Management team looking at output but not quality and very short sighted. Very tedious procedure and paperwork.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe open and listen to the feedback from employees, respect everybody from operators to managers for the professionalism and skills. It is not about all the systems to access performance and asking for survey yearly, but how sincere that management want to get the company to be better. If all effort is to please the bosses only, everything heard is sweet but actually bitter.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I never understood how they can be in the Global Top 5 (back then). Not a good company

    Applications Engineer (Former Employee) Agrate Brianza (Italy)

    ProsWhen I joined the job seemed like an interesting job. However, soon it turned out that the group where I worked had hardly sales. I didn't find real pros. Probably I didn't see the good sides, because they must be there. But not in Italy.

    ConsIn Italy it depends on the network you have. Skills are not the only thing that counts. One symptom was that in Agrate very few job openings were posted on the internal website (all organized in the network) , whereas in Grenoble often many jobs were posted. The sites are comparable in size. People / management doesn't keep promises and not the right people are in the right position. Colleagues were also not willing to share a lot of info with other colleagues in an order to 'be important'. For example, software was not commented so that others would not understand. I had a few employers, but ST was by far the worst.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt is better to have someone work then to have someone just being present without working. So let people do the job they want to and are best at.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Device Engineer

    Device Engineer (Former Employee) Rousset, Bouches-du-Rhône, Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur (France)

    ProsThis company has great values (Corporate Social and Environmental Responsibility is enforced), and the management trully believes in these values. I started in this company and I learnt a ton. I was regularly offered new missions to keep on learning, to keep on moving. HR policies are among the best I have witenessed: transparency, communication, and most of the time good listening skills. Even the salaries and benefits are good (for the region I was working in).

    ConsThere is no real high management; however, HR reps told me there was a plan to put in place a proper high potential system in place in the next few years.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe less techies, and more business oriented.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
