Good company with bad management

Senior Staff Design Engineer (Former Employee)
New Delhi

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

ProsNice culture and wonderful engineers.

ConsBad managers and too much European.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease distribute work where it can be done and don't cling whole work near the heart of European even if that means delaying the product. Be globalized.

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

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

Great company for freshers

Design Engineer (Current Employee)
Greater Noida

I have been working at STMicroelectronics full-time for less than a year

ProsLots to learn if one really wants to.
Great minds at the top level. They thrive to innovate.
Provides over-comfort zone to employees, very relaxed culture => Not a good sign for freshers.

ConsLower level employees crib a lot about their pay.
Strong negative image of the company among lower level employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't fear taking risks. Find an alternative to FDSOI before ST gets into another trouble like the losses due to ST-Ericsson.
