    I have been working at GLOBALFOUNDRIES full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Good work life balance
    -Immediate managers and supervisors are skilled, faced zero politics

    Cons

    -Changes CEO/long-term strategy every 3 years, so chances of being employed
    for more than 2 years is low.
    -Frequent layoffs and glut hiring. Large number of people hired within 1/2 years got laid off, so why hire them..?
    -No vision/plan for future, feels like a sinking ship.

    I worked at GLOBALFOUNDRIES full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - got to learn a whole lot of stuff on advanced nodes
    - good work environment with nice people around
    - decent perks with a good salary (in the bay area)
    - work-life balance is pretty good here

    Cons

    - the role is good to work for a while but not really that useful later on to move on to another job
    - no much scope of development (in terms of technical knowledge)
    - Lately, due to the change in CEO and restructuring in the organization, there has been a series of layoffs (seems like instability within the top level management)
