    I have been working at STMicroelectronics as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    Very good culture, Flexibility in work, and benefits provided by company is very great. They take care of their employees very well.

    Cons

    Some departments lack to give responsible work to Interns . It could be because they don't want to take any kind of risk.

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

    Pros

    For someone outside of Europe, a fantastic place for multi-cultural experience, particularly for business owners wanting experience dealing with international organizations.
    The guys in Grenoble lot better than rest of the Europe.
    If the BUs put their determination behind something, wonders can happen. eg., MEMs, power mgmt, etc.

    Cons

    The Director level mgmt needs a forklift change. Most have scant idea how to run/grow a business.
    The leadership has no idea how to create a strategy to run a huge org; once in a while a hit comes along to save grace.
    Huge dependence at all levels on who you know to get the job done. There are hardly any processes to run a multi-segment businesses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To succeed, stop laying off US employees & remove the guarantees of lifelong-jobs in Europe. Start instilling high-performing leadership in key BUs to demonstrate performance based success.
    Reward based on performance metrics as opposed to seniority & who you know.
    Ask INSEAD to do a case study on why TI which was at the same position as STM has been able to do so successfully & implement the recommendations.

    I have been working at STMicroelectronics full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Possibility to learn for at least 2 years. Depending on group you can find excellent people. Possibility to travel even extensively

    Cons

    No meritocracy , none possibility to grow. Carrier opportunity just political defined.
    Low salary
    Top management absolutely inadequate.
    Abnormous size for marketing group

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Radical change, from top to medium management need. Offer real opportunity for each employee basing on meritocracy. Tasks ,owner must be better defined

    Pros

    Job security is good in general; you can have a good work-life balance; not too much pressure and you can enjoy the flexible work environment.

    Cons

    The challenge is normally you cannot find challenge easily here; in general it's difficult to find passion in your work, so I won't recommend it to young people with ambitions and energy.
