    STMicroelectronics - Stagnating Company

    Engineering Specialist (Former Employee) Greater Noida

    ProsWork content is good but not cutting edge. Good Job Security. Work Life balance.

    ConsManagement is really out-dated and out of touch of the present day market. STM continues to bleed of Money and good manpower which is leaving the company in droves. What remains is the dead wood.

    Working on older technologies and innovation in products is abysmal.

    Sweet talk and toeing the line of your manager is needed for you to survive.

    Salary hikes are a pittance and salary structure gets revised to paint a rosy picture of your package!

    Greater Noida Office is at a distant location which is quite far from the city. Hence commute gets really tough. You cannot live nearby since nearby localities have multiple issues.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to weed out the unproductive employees rather than letting go of the good ones.

    Brainstorming on the future road-map and products are a must in case STM has to remain competitive. the competitors have far more mature products and technologies than STM.

    Technical Leader (Current Employee) Greater Noida

    ProsExcellent work life balance and HR practices, Good team spirit and team bonding,

    Great work culture, Employee engagement and participation.

    ConsThis is not a good company to start your carrier with.
    The quality of work and project management practices is not up to industry standards.
    Technologies used are not keeping up with time and often you will find yourself working on obsolete technologies.
    Vertical growth is hard to achieve. Saturation at top level.

    Good place to learn, but not to earn

    Senior Design Engineer (Current Employee) Greater Noida

    Pros1. If you are a self-motivated individual. This is the best place for you as you get ample time to focus on things you wish to pursue.
    2. Work stress is at its minimal level. But, the level and complexity of work at ST is ahead or at par with industry.
    3. The existing technical cream layer of ST is deteriorating quickly. As of now there are many people in ST whom you'll love to work with.

    Cons1. The work culture is a breeding ground for people who don't work ethically. People treat the freedom given by ST to chill, hangout and no regulation is there, thus work suffers.

    2. Management layer is of old-school people politics is evident in many scenarios.

    3. Hikes are not governed by Potential and results-delivered. But, people are given hikes on impractical measures such as : colleges branding (even at experienced level) , complexity of profile is not honored (that is why solid people leave quickly).

    4. Salary is a big turn down.

    Advice to Senior ManagementST needs to consolidate its staff there are many useless people in every hierarchy. Serious thought is required on the existing appraisal process.

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