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

    Pros

    Great facilities and new buildings. Science is interesting but is difficult to get cross functional training. Interesting products for big name brands like AMD

    Cons

    Work place is difficult, organization and communication is lacking albeit improving. Hard getting support to work in an area or projects you're interested in. Not supportive environment and you must control your own destiny with little help from the employer. This is a great reason to work here though as a first job. I've learned that I have to be more assertive and take charge of my life not be complacent.

    Advice to Management

    Mid level managers need to be changed or re-educated. Corporate ideologies sound great when I hear it but still needs to make it down to the foundation of the business.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, great people, lots of room for growth and career development

    Cons

    Poor effort to support technical staff with resources and long term pay improvement. Nightmarish red tape process when trying to hire. Ineffective employee rating and deficient annual raise system. Management does not live up to professed ethical and transparency standards.

    Advice to Management

    Accept the truth, even when it's hard. Listen to and support your employees. Allow your managers to reward high performing employees and remove employee rating quotas. Improve IT support, hold Senior Managers accountable for department performance and get rid of Google, it's ridiculous.
