Company is still growing and with that is growing pains, both good and bad.
Equipment Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) – Malta, NY – April 19, 2017
I have been working with Globalfoundries for nearly 2 years. The management varies from shift to shift. I was fortunate enough to get onto a good team that gels together well for the most part. We have a well rounded group of individual who have vast experience in the semiconductor industry and new ones to the industry. There are engineers who try hard to keep in contact with the equipment technicians who work on their toolset. Others are rarely heard from, others don't take any advice from the ET's who have years more experience on the toolset.
The need for better organization is still needed for pm parts, kits and repair parts for unscheduled down tools.
Motivation to take responsibility for ownership of work, tools, and equipment is lacking from many of the ET, PT and EE is prevalant.
I like the shift hours and so overall to me, this is a decent company as they are now turning a profit and rewarding their employees for it as well.
sponsor events for workers and their families, onsite workout room/gym, good pay for experienced workers, overtime is allowed
better organization needed; lack of accountability
