    Pros

    Life is great in support group

    Cons

    Life sucks if you are in any engineering role because support group does;t provide any support and works 9-3 schedule. if you are a process or equipment engineer, you are screwed.

    I worked at GLOBALFOUNDRIES full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Latest and greatest technology. Company has deep wallets to invest in new equipment. Still going through growing pains which makes it easy to make a difference.

    Cons

    Understaffed. Yearly raises will leave you unsatisfied. Will recruit from outside sources and give out higher salaries and positions rather than promote and develop from within. Managers are managers, not leaders. No accountability.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people. Pay your employees what they deserve.

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

    Pros

    Freedom to work and learn as you see fit to achieve the goals you have. Engineering team members are good people and are fun to work with.

    Cons

    Accountability does not exist in any way, and there is no incentive to adhere or strive for others to adhere to the culture and standard that is attempting to be built.

    Managers do not manage, or remove road blocks. They are more closely described as glorified reporters who do not stand up for the members of their team.

    There is a massive disconnect between the top level management and the first and second line management. The top level have goals and ideas for the company, but that is somehow completely lost on its way down to the middle and lower management, who solely deal with whatever daily fire there is. It is possible that this exists because there is about six levels of management in between.

    Pay raises and bonuses are an absolute joke here for any member of the team who is actually working hard to move up. There is far too much nihilism and less focus on actually performing the work, and more focus on having your name on every duplicate report that must be made in the redundant meetings that are held.

    Slim to no actual focus on the people in the company. They are not treated as the most valuable resource and not taken care of as a result.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your people. There is currently no incentive or reward to doing hard work.

    Pros

    upper management is more open than I expected as far as how the business is doing and what the future outlook is.

    Cons

    Low pay, upper management seems to be on a different page then the workers and we are not rewarded properly for hard work.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people who have experience. You are rebuilding the wheel when most of your employees are much farther advanced.

    I worked at GLOBALFOUNDRIES full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Overall a possibility for a very positive outlook for the future. Pay for some is excellent. Decent benefits. If you know your stuff and can show data it is usually easy to get things done.

    Cons

    Middle management is a joke. Almost no one accepts responsibility or wants to make a decision. Personnel management is left to inexperienced unqualified rookies which causes discontent. Extreme lack of career direction. Time off is based on a 40 hr work week therefore shift employees do not get enough time off to accommodate 2 weeks of sick time and they don't get paid shift differential for sick time or personal choice time. It actually costs a shift worker money to take sick time or personal choice time. This is a TERRIBLE practice. HE and management don't seem to care about the disconnect in the time off for shift workers. Engineers are inexperienced and over worked. The entire work force is punished for the mistakes of an individual rather than retraining the individual.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting inexperienced individuals into 1st line management positions and leaving them with no guidance. Employees don't quit jobs they quit managers.

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

    Pros

    Base salary and medical benefits are on part with the industry

    Cons

    Bonuses and raises don't exist. Horrible management, horrible communication, food in cafe is expensive. Most of the staff is inexperienced from outside the industry... so they lean and rely heavily on anyone who has a clue... burning them out. Every department is understaffed. Maintenance and safety procentres are poorly written or just plain wrong. They always cut costs by taking away from the employees vs working to correct their inefficient business practices.

    The pay isn't too bad and they give a relocation package.
