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

    Pros

    Non-intrusive work atmosphere in most departments.
    Overtime offered often if you are willing to prove yourself.
    Company has shown growth since I started working here, both financially and trying to improve themselves for employee retention.
    Promising company growth ahead and leading edge technology.

    Cons

    Much of senior management does not listen to feedback from technicians. The people at the very top to try to listen and fix things but there is too much for them to take in.
    Management in charge of departments needs to respect EXPERIENCED technicians more and listen to feedback if things are to keep changing for the better.
    Many engineers don't have any actual floor experience and are naive about tool processes.

    Advice to Management

    Have engineers interface more with technicians.
    Have technicians interface more with engineers.
    Don't just give vendor training to a handful of engineers that will never trickle down their knowledge to the technicians that actually do work on the tools.
    Discourage negative work attitudes.
    Discourage emotionally unhealthy employees from creating a toxic work environment that makes some people want to leave.
