    I have been working at GLOBALFOUNDRIES full-time

    Pros

    o company performance stabilized after horrible 2011
    o good coverage in the press
    o interesting to work across diverse cultures/sites
    o technology roadmap has some promise

    Cons

    o executive leadership very weak - all second rate or very inexperienced
    o Singapore long term
    o Malta with no load from start through 2013
    o executive hiring and promotions totally the wrong people
    o AMD demand dropping, other big guys prefer TSMC or even Samsung or UMC

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    forget IPO - GF will be lucky to survive next 3 years without major "drop off the cliff" syndrome. Lots of capital being spent but long term demand shaky/risky with unclear profitability despite lots of focus from ATIC/GF/consultants

    Pros

    everything is transparent. turn over rate is high. thus, you'll find the system is new comer friendly. as all employee is dispensable.

    Cons

    you will work twice the working hrs without compensation. moving people is by insult. words are harsh.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    need better middle management people who knows how to thank and motivate people. nicer to hardworking people.
