Excellent benefits, but not much of a future in the US

Pros

As a European company, their benefits are outstanding compared to many others. They still offer a pension plan, offer more vacation days that most, and their 401k match is not only excellent but is also fully vested from day one.

Cons

ST has been steadily decreasing their presence in the United States starting with the closure of both of their large manufacturing facilities in Dallas and Phoenix followed by the closure of several smaller design centers. Not much prospect for future growth within the US.

    I worked at STMicroelectronics

    Pros

    Very friendly, supporting colleagues
    Allowed to explore things (and sometimes to try them live as well)
    You will not be sacked very easily
    If you want peace of mind without doing anything, it is the right place

    Cons

    No recognition of whatever you do
    Very poor pay scale. It is easy to get into the company with inflated pay scale. But once in, salary increment is just a peanut.
    Promotion? Don't ever think about it.
    Unless you are an annoyer you get nothing in return.

    I worked at STMicroelectronics

    Pros

    1.) Excellent work environment
    2.) Some of the best HR practices I have seen in the industry. BTW, I am not the only one who swears by it. A bunch of my friends from ST who are working in other orgs. regularly praise the HR practices at ST.
    3.) Prompt recognition for excellence

    Cons

    1.) I think it is more of an industry issue that there is absence of structured product management practices which was evident at ST also.
