    I have been working at GLOBALFOUNDRIES full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nice area of NY to live and raise a family. I was issued a cheap coffee mug for which to drink my "free" coffee and water with.

    Cons

    Management rules through fear: in meetings they single out 1 person, and hammer them into submission so that others will fear the management team. The Fab environment is terrible! The working conditions are hot and sweaty, and there are no concessions to Fab workers. 5S and protocol are out of control with no accountability. There is no trust or respect for the Technicians no matter how many years of experience they have.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ajit - get rid of site management, they are running the place into the ground!

    Great potential as a company, but terrible executive management, HR, benefits and work life balance.

    I worked at GLOBALFOUNDRIES full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great potential as a technology powerhouse. Chance to work on the best semiconductor technologies. Great diversity. Good bonus plan (if paid). If you are hired as an executive, good place to work.

    Cons

    A foundry company with no one in the top management has any foundry business experience. Only executives (director and above) get pre IPO stock options or equity grant. Bonus and merit increase seldom get paid. 24hour work culture, totally a slave drive. Totally disorganized. IT and HR is one of the worst in the industry probably. Top management is all from Freescale and former Philips with no vision and clear direction. Compensation and other benefits are not competitive at least in the Silicon Valley. Lot of politics and favoritism. Terrible work culture, run like 3 different companies across Singapore, Dresden and USA.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More of an advice to ATIC and the investors. Please bring someone with significant foundry experience at the top management. Currently this is a place for old Freescale and Philips guys to step up their career ladder with no vision or direction. Be employee centric rather than a sweat shop to attract and retain top talent. Offer good benefits and equity/stock options to all employees rather than just an executive centric company.
