A super place for an engineer. Can move up technical, sales, or management ladders.

Applications Engineer, Pre-sales (Former Employee)
DFW, TX (US)

I worked at STMicroelectronics full-time for more than 10 years

ProsThe more you do for them, the better you are paid and the more career options you have because you build a reputation for excellent work. No one blocks you. Much autonomy for those who work hard and are competent. Good patent award program for both sole inventors and teams. Friendly professional workplace. If let go for simple business reasons, quite friendly and helpful on the way out, with severance and other helpful benefits. About the usual benefits - very good health and related programs. Very honest company.

Cons"You must enter at least five words for Cons". I don't have any complaints about my employment, really. Sorry 'bout that.

Advice to Senior ManagementHire me back.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

New technology - great, management and promotions non existant

Imaging Applications (Former Employee)
Edinburgh, Scotland (UK)

I worked at STMicroelectronics full-time for more than 5 years

ProsLearning and using the latest technology

ConsManagement, HR that spouted the company line permanently - didnt listen to employees.
Complete dis-interest in recognising staff achievements - unless you were in the design team.

Lack of pay rises and promotions, lower grade staff had minimal increases, enough to keep them on the bottom of the band levels that was all.

Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to listen to your lower staff, feed that through your middle management and listen all the way up. Dont ignore your talent

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
