I have never refrained from doing what I thought was right until now.

Smts (Current Employee)
Milpitas, CA

ProsI enjoy working with some of my co-workers who are very good. There are pockets of excellence throughout the company.
Some of the technologists are very good technologists.

ConsSenior management doesn't seem to understand the foundry business.
Senior management is too "dynamic" with frequent changes in staff and direction.
Every idea is a "strategy" regardless of its merit.
Every group and many individuals are focused on avoiding blame rather than customer success and success of the whole company. There is a strong culture of denial.
The most successful people are those who bully others regardless of the merit of their position.
There are too many processes and too many wild ideas and not enough execution and success.
The "GLOBAL" part of the name means you have to be up at all hours communicating with other parts of the company. Senior management seems to think this is a badge of honor. Perhaps it would be different if everyone had a huge up side, but without this hope it is just demoralizing.

Advice to Senior ManagementSenior management sure make sure their resumes are current.
Focus on a small number of efforts and achieve mastery before branching out to related endeavors.
Learn to properly evaluate strategic options, make reasonable decisions, and then execute them to conclusion. Tactics are in support of a strategy, not replacements for it. Strategies that change frequently aren't really strategies but responses to tactical situations.
Learn to communicate. Messages from "the leadership team" to the company (the "follower team"?) never ring true.
Process technology and manufacturing excellence are the cornerstones of the foundry business. Focus here.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
