    I have been working at STMicroelectronics full-time (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.

    Pros

    Relaxed work atmosphere
    No pressure
    Run of the mill job
    Balanced work - life

    Cons

    Not agile
    Not faced paced
    Old archaic management with zero appetite for becoming dynamic and leading
    If you point out mistakes you will be killed
    Motto "Sust raho - mast raho"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look around, take a cue from leaders in the semiconductor space. If you cannot evolve meaningfully and break from 'France is my country - Italy is my country' to a really global go getter attitude then please just shut the dammn company down
