High potential, unlikely to be realized

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Malta, NY

I worked at GLOBALFOUNDRIES full-time

ProsInteresting work, technically challenging and sophisticated.
Work with some of the best minds in the business.
Compensation and benefits can be decent, if your manager sticks up for you.

ConsVery poor life-work balance.
Poor management, often mandating impossible targets and chewing out teams that can't achieve them.
Clash of differing cultures, largely unresolved, leading to a working style of confrontation instead of collaboration.
Employees are treated like slaves, or at least interchangeable commodities. There is pressure to not increase head count, accompanied by ever-increasing workload.
No bonuses or salary increases in the last year.
HR continually tries to stiff the employees, short changing them on salaries, raises and reviews. HR tries to run the business too.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake care of your people; they are starting to bail out already.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

As a startup, it is fast paced and understaffed. The workforce is diverse. So there are some cultural conflicts

Senior Technician (Current Employee)

I have been working at GLOBALFOUNDRIES


Pros: It is the biggest and most leading edge project in… Cons: Each person brings their previous culture and knowlege to the party. As a result… Advice to Senior Management: Start ups are stressful for everyone. Take time to recognize and lift… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
