    I have been working at GLOBALFOUNDRIES full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Condensed work week with 12 hr shifts allow for lots of time off.
    Challenging job tasks will make the time fly by.
    Benefits are good.

    Cons

    Huge disconnect between MT's in the Fab and those on the carpet.

    Advice to Management

    When you ask for cost saving ideas you should listen to those actually doing the work. Those with hands on the equipment are very in-tune on what is needed to maximize tool up-time. Team work is preached but this is a very one sided operation.
