    I have been working at GLOBALFOUNDRIES full-time

    Pros

    The money isn't bad for what is expected of you and I haven't ever seen anybody loose their job for poor performance, so I guess job security it quite good

    Cons

    No profit sharing schemes, no personal development (people just do the same thing year after year), the most terrible shift system ever created by mankind, and raises and bonuses are not based on personal performance but rather company performance.

    In my personal experience , GF has helped me grow personally/professionally all while maintaining a healthy work balance (Manager Lucky Draw**). definitely a great place to learn and grow .

    Just the usual statistical average number (I imagine) of bad apples in management as one would find anywhere else (Fun Fact: Its the same people that keep shuffling around in this industry, no escape!)

    Some old internal employee facing systems. Things are improving here but we have some room to improve.
