Former Employee - Member of Technical Staff in Malta, NY

I worked at GLOBALFOUNDRIES full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Very advanced work environment.
Office is spacious.
Sufficient budget to execute numerous projects.

Cons

Too many turf wars.
Key Information is hoarded and not freely shared.
Emphasis on hard work without the actual understanding of how it could be done more efficiently.
Very poor capability in differentiating performance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Ensure work effectiveness, do not just focus on the dogma of working 24 hrs 7 days a week.
Lack of planning / direction is often compensated by forcing workers to sacrifice weekends & holidays.so as to meet schedules.

    I have been working at GLOBALFOUNDRIES full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good work environment, very friendly and down-to-earth employees, state-of-the-art facility, good opportunity for entry-level for career advancement

    Cons

    Steep learning curve for entry-level, 12-hr shifts and often stay longer than expected, expected to work all major holidays (including Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, etc...) if your shift falls on it, since FAB operates 24/7, job roles sometimes unclear

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't think stopping production for a few major holidays would hurt - maybe schedule FAB shutdowns/ system updates for these days.

    Pros

    Nothing at all but competitive salary

    Cons

    Horrible management. Most of them are from failed companies and they lead to fail.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are repeating the same as you did in your previous companies that failed. You are doing the same here. What do you think the outcome will be? Obvious, isn't it?
