Pros

Lots of latitude to put your stamp on a new company.
Diverse workforce with experience from across the entire semiconductor industry.
Innovation is encouraged
Lots of growth opportunity for both company and employee

Cons

There are few systems in place. Doing what should be a simple task (like measuring wafers) may turn into a scavenger hunt as you track down the one shaman who knows the tricks to do what you want to do.
Lots of turmoil at upper management levels contributes to a sense of chaos throughout the company.
Changing missions/roadmaps at the sites leads to confusion and waste in planning and executing a factory startup. It's hard to be successful when you change the requirements for your factory in the middle of a startup (28nm to 32nm to 20nm....).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus less on talking and more on doing. GlobalFoundries often falls into the trap of having 5 people being really busy chasing around for information to fill in spreadsheets and dashboards and presentations showing the latest status. Unfortunately that work can't get done because everyone is busy tracking and reporting rather than actually doing the work. Lead by example in this matter. The rank and file are learning everything as they go, so train yourself in one of their tasks and show yourself pitching in. No job too small etc. etc.
