A Best Retiral but A Bad One For Freshers !!!

Senior Design Engineer (Former Employee)
Noida

I worked at STMicroelectronics full-time for more than 3 years

Pros- Relax Culture
- Good Work-Life Balance

Cons- Slow Management
- No Good Hikes
- Europeans always look forward to take the command of all the world-wide activities
- No Good Decision Making
- No specialisation in Work. They even constrain you and make you handicap even in your specialisation
- Freshers Get use to the Relax culture
-Everything is so stable , so they lack and avoid innovation

Advice to Senior Management-Please improve your marketing strategies as TIME TO MARKET is very important
- Please give a proper hike to employees as all the Best Talent has already drained out or draining out
- Improve Decision Making Power and intelligence as Shut down of Bristol site and exit of ST-Erricson has proved much. Be sure FDSOI dont become the "final" flop show

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

Satisfactory Work, un-satisfactory emoluments

Staff Engineer (Current Employee)
Greater Noida

I have been working at STMicroelectronics full-time for more than 5 years

Pros- good working environment in few groups for self-motivated people
- Technically sound seniors

Cons- Large number of groups have repetitive jobs that add no value to one's own skill set
- Technically sound people have stayed back because there is no other option in north india, else attrition rate would have been much higher
- Poor time-to-market of IPs and products
- Laid back attitude in most of the groups
- Over the years the freshers talent pool has reduced a lot in quality

Advice to Senior Management- Take stock of the situation, there is a lot of scope of improvement in productivity
- Have longer vision rather than finding short-term solutions

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Software Engineer at STMicroelectronics, Greater Noida

Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Greater Noida

I worked at STMicroelectronics full-time for more than 3 years

ProsST has a nice working environment and the people are very friendly and knowledgeable. You can get a chance to learn different technologies and grow in a particular domain.

ConsThe management is not strong enough to distinguish between the capabilities of employees - never gets rid of poor performing chunk, those working hard are not fully awarded.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe company should have better scales for performance evaluations of the employees - those performing really good should be awarded with matching incentives for keeping them motivated.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
