    Pros

    Great technology, working with tier one suppliers and customers, exciting projects and products. Smart people to work with. Fair and decent employer with some of the best employee benefits around. Opportunity to learn.

    Cons

    Ingrained silo-mentality; not much cross-pollination between different divisions. Very hard to break into higher level management if you are not Italian or French. Internecine civil war between these fractions. Unnecessary layers of management. Company is treated as a social service by the French and Italian governments which are part owners, resulting in massive employment levels in those countries. Failures are not sanctioned. Cuts made in other parts of the world, impacting bottom line. High level decisions are often made based on political and economic realities of France and Italy, not on what is best for the company.

    Advice to Management

    Get a German or American CEO. Welcome bidirectional communication with employees. Take risks. Get off the government funding – it comes with too many strings attached. Get rid of nepotism, reward excellence.

  2. Enriching both on technical point of view as well as on the human side with fellow coworkers

    Pros

    The company certainly offers an international experience with projects running with teams all around the world. As a semiconductor company one have the chance of exposure to state-of-the-art technologies.

    Cons

    Career development is difficult and crisis environment undermines employees confidence and satisfaction

    Pros

    The local design site culture is professional but informal, a small, tightly knit team of Asic Designers, but backed by a robust set of ASIC design tools, flows, libraries, and expertise from their other corporate locations. Immediate management was accessible and easy to work with.

    Cons

    The local design site seemed like a distant outpost from the corporate center. Critical project resources were shared across multiple time-zones and continents, and required frequent negotiation to get through critical resource crunches.

    Advice to Management

    During the time I worked there, corporate management did not have a big presence, and it was not clear how our site contributed into the corporate vision or growth strategy.

  11. Overall, ST is a good company that cares about employees.
