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

Pros

Individual contributors are very skilled and motivated. The company usually allows for a good degree of freedom in how we execute our work and are responsible for our results.
In general there is more attention to the people than in other, pure american, companies

Cons

Management sometimes loses focus and top directives are not clear or not always coherent. It requires a lot of self-direction and self-motivation. Salary range is not always in line with local competitors (Arizona / Colorado / California)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make decisions and stick to them, unless they're proven wrong.

    I have been working at STMicroelectronics full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I talk here only about the digital sector, the one I work in.
    Potentially one could do lots of interesting work in STM on leading edge projects.

    Cons

    Management has often really no idea of what it is doing from a technical point of view.
    Lots of money are wasted on losing investments, such as CMOS technologies, only to preserve jobs in France and Italy, for political reasons.
    Careers are often based on personal relationship and/or seniority, not on real merits.
    It is also very difficult to remove unsuccessful managers, often they are left without real responsibilities, but keeping their salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Resign. Hoping substitutes are real businessmen, and not politicians in disguise.
