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 10 years

    Pros

    If you hate traveling long distance to work and stay in Johore Bahru or some where north of Singapore. GLOBALFOUNDRIES might be good option to seek employment at.

    Cons

    When ATIC acquired Chartered Semiconductor, management tout that ATIC has deep pockets and would be willing to invest in Singapore site. However, this had not proven to be true as little cash had been committed to Singapore site.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve on integrity. Please tell your customers and employees the truth.

    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.
