Horrible management
Employee (Current Employee), Malta, NYMay 27, 2014
Pros: new buildings?
Cons: everything except the benefits.
A typical day is disorganized and is usually nothing more than putting out fires that were brought up to management 6 months ago.

Overall good place to work. Only thing that is lacking is a training program.
Process Engineer (Current Employee), Matla, NYMay 18, 2014
Company is still in startup mode at the Malta location. Though things are starting to pick up and become exciting. The only thing that is lacking is an effective training program. New hires only receive a few days of basic industry overview before they are told to "shadow" some of their fellow employees.

Not for people with real work experience
Principal Equipment Maintenance Technician (Current Employee), Malta, NYFebruary 22, 2014
Pros: no traffic jams on the way to work or home
Cons: expensive cafeteria, horrible parking, poorly managed, everything done 4-5 times before its done right
Poorly managed. Way too many NCG' s, with way too much say and they hire more everyday. Experienced workforce stay away, you will gain nothing but a little bit of pay. Wages seem good but not when you consider the inflated housing, food, gas, electricity, taxes, etc. costs.

Market Opportunity
Director of Marketing (Current Employee), Santa Clara, CAFebruary 12, 2014
The company has a tremendous market opportunity, needs to capitalize on it. Needs to also have a culture that fosters growth and motivates its current employees. A lot of good hires in the recent year or two - needs to gel together to bring to realization the opportunity that beholds in front of them.

Lack of Rules/Place is a Joke..Employees and construction workers have no respect for anything or anyone.
Tech (Former Employee), Malta, New YorkFebruary 7, 2014
Pros: good looking women
Cons: unprofessional security staff. seems like an abundance of managers.
Most people here are book smart and have no common sense. Lots of money has been wasted since they have built this place.Way to many people are being overpaid that do construction here. Maybe in 10yrs. it will be a good place to work. If its still around.

Attrition rate should be a sign...
Process Engineer (Current Employee), Malta, NYJanuary 20, 2014
A great opportunity fell short of expectations due to poor culture and disorder. Mostly due to mismanagement and lack of direction seems to be the general consensus.

This is a fast pace environment that is very dynamic in regards to all aspects.

Still a growing company
Manufacturing Engineer (Current Employee), Malta, NYAugust 6, 2013
Pros: good initial salary
Cons: not enough room to move up, very poor mid level management
Company is currently leaving its startup phase but does not seem to be full filling its full potential. The initial salaries were quite generous, but little room for growth to other departments due to several transfer freezes. Also their reimbursement for education is quite poor.

“Physically and mentally exhausting due to micromanagement and HR politics" Not a place for experienced FAB personnel
Sr. Test Tech Engineer (Current Employee), Malta, NYJuly 13, 2013
Pros: some of the best of the best fab employees work here, the fab employees are people with a good old fashioned work ethic with average 20 years experience
Cons: most experienced fab employees are being replaced by naive college graduates with no experience, upper management micromanages every minor detail without the knowledge to back it up, recent college graduates who are in charge make rash decisions or changes, experienced employees opinion's are dismissed, morale is the worst i've seen in any company, management isn't concerned with employee morale, upper management's answer to employee morale was "suck it up", upper management is very arrogant
What management needs to understand is that the employees that are here with 15 plus years experience are here to help the company succeed. Most of them do not have college degrees but when it comes to running a fab they can run circles around any "fresh" college grad. Management doesn't understand that to those people with all this experience and pride – more... in what they do, this is not a job, it's a career, it's their livelihood. The college grad that did not train with the experienced person isn't learning the process or the values and loyalty, they can and will go to a better paying job at any minute... But you do not reward the experienced employees or pay them what they are worth or treat them with the respect they deserve. The college graduates should be learning from the experienced employees and then you would have the most successful foundry company in the world. Most experienced employees 2 years contracts are coming up and you all are ignorant enough to watch each one walk out the door, taking success with them.
Some of the best workers in the world work or worked here. They take pride in there work and tend to be loyal but after being taken advantage of and not being compensated or recognized it wears you down. Upper Management and HR try to micromanage every part of this company. They go as far as not allowing the managers above the fab employees to have the freedom to reward the employees that are earning it. HR and upper management has to make the decision on what kind of raise or promotion the employee gets, although they know nothing about you or what you do. HR micromanages everything and most of the HR reps are 23 year old college graduates who have no experience and this is their first job. They are making decisions that affect the company and the employees with the mindset of "because I said so". This company has the attitude that the answer to all the problems are hiring employees fresh out of college before they even complete college. They treat people with experience as if they are not worthy and should feel lucky to work here. It is not a good atmosphere to work in. If you want to join a frat house then Globalfoundries is the place to be. – less

Great Expectations but Middle Management Needs to go
Principal Engineering Equipment Technician (Current Employee), Malta, NYJune 6, 2013
Pros: state of the art start up
Cons: managers from failed companies (usa and europe) are destroying this place
I have never worked for such a crazy semiconductor company in my life. Middle management is ruining the New York Site. The best people were all put in their place and told to follow the status quo. They are now leaving and with it goes all the experience GF needs to survive.
