Minimise the assets would probably generate attractive PE/ PER, should be worth to invest and hold it for long term. Most importantly STM is likely in focusing of R&D activities instead of manufacturing.

175 jobs currently lost as of Nov with more anticipated at the start of the year. No buy out but at least a good severance going out the door...

just phoned the life insurance company in Connecticutt-guess what life insurance will cost 12,000.00 dollars annually for continuation of having well-being---is this what the american traitors had in mind?????? The number 1 gentleman with should board a plane back to Phoenix and call a meeting with good people from within and get a meeting of the minds going--this could be turned around with people of vision,wisdom,and bended knees-miracles can happen with faith-that is what our country deeply is about. Miracles can happen so fast the human being cannot contain or process it as quick and as fast as it happens. The american spirit of the people can blow anyone away. Just pray for this to happen.

I was employed by ST in Phoenix and I have to say it was a good company to work for. I met a lot of good, hardworking people. Thank you, ST for giving us all a chance to work for you. I say to anyone, who were so unhappy there, you should have left a long time ago instead of complaing about it. St gave everyone a good package as we left. If you were one of the Lucky one's,be thankful, not to many companies give out the payouts, ST has given those who have left.
Good Luck to everyone and may you all be blessed in the Future.

ST management and a contract employee screwed me out of my severence. It was the worst semiconductor company I have ever worked for. They never cared about what education or experience you had and failed to utilize those who had substantial knowledge and work ethic. I hope they collapse internationally. It ended up being nothing of what it was in the late 90's.

For all of you that think ST was a bad company and treated their employees poorly, you're a dumb piece of shit. They were a great company that had a dumbass for a CEO.
