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

Pros

Relatively good salary, live in Dresden is not very expensive. Managers in general a rather kind to people. Gives you good experience that is valued by other potential employers.

Cons

Work style is chaotic. You spend several month hard working on the project, but then it turns out that it's not needed anymore because another approach will be used. One week you are told to spend all you time to the priority number one task, next week you are told to abandon this task alltogether. And then half a year later this task pops up again with the highest priority.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do more strategic planning. A lot of resources are wasted due to poor planning.

    I worked at GLOBALFOUNDRIES full-time for more than a 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.
