    Excellent work life balance and HR practices, Good team spirit and team bonding,
    Decent Salary

    Cons

    This 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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nurture innovation and invest in the technical growth of your people. These are the reason which got you where you are.

    I have been working at STMicroelectronics full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    1. 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.

    Cons

    1. 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 ManagementAdvice

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