I worked at GLOBALFOUNDRIES full-time (more than an year)

Pros

An international environment. fresh graduate will have a lot of opportunities to learn. The career opportunity may be good for singles.

Cons

very poor work-life balance. Overtime is very common in this company. You may be asked back for work during weekend and holiday. It could be acceptable if you are in the management or executive level, but may be worthwhile for engineers. Turn over rate is very high. the moral is low

Advice to ManagementAdvice

they should try to reduce turn over rate of engineer.

    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
