Good place to work for a perfect work/life balance

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

Prosgood opportunities to work on core device drivers. Perfect place to work as a senior employee with great work/life balance. Employee friendly.

Conscompany doesn't seem to to be doing well in terms of business. if you have aspirations to work aggressively and keep moving ahead, ST is not place for you.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease do periodic follow up of senior employees. Employees who after vast experience are not able to justify their salaries should either be placed in a different profile or asked to leave. There is no point in keeping liabilities.

Not a pay master - because of its own financial condition, may not expect very good hikes - single digit avg hike for last couple of years.
