    Advice to Management

    Tell the truth, even when it hurts. This is your directive. Tom, remember those face to face meetings you used to have when you joined the company? Why don’t you Start that again?

      I worked at GLOBALFOUNDRIES full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Great company to work for. Management and employee very polite. Since GF was a mergers/acquisition of many companies started working together as a single company and executed well. Can achieve any goal if they put their mind to it and focus on it.

      Cons

      Still room for continuous improvement.
