Its ok but mismanaged at the lower levels
Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) –  Malta, NYMarch 11, 2019
Its ok not great, its a company with great potential just mismanaged at the level where it counts most. I would like to have managers that arent tied to the success of their current manager.

Fast paced due to low staffing
Production Technician (Current Employee) –  East Fishkill, NYMarch 10, 2019
After over 10 years, there has been multiple furloughs. This has been very unfortunate in stress for many employees. Skeleton crew with increased work load. Difficult to keep up with the work load when people are on vacation
Cons
High work load with minimal staff

Great Job Work/Life Balance
Manufacturing Engineer (Current Employee) –  Malta, NYMarch 4, 2019
Good benefits and great work/life balance.

Company struggles with employee attrition due to poor promotions/bonus structure. Workplace culture is meeting excessive.. Organization would rather rely on external resources to access its SWOT versus trusting its internal management to strategically align its long-term plan
Pros
Work/Life Balance
Cons
High turnover

Good place for motivated employees
Manager (Current Employee) –  Malta, NYJanuary 21, 2019
Good place for motivated employees looking for opportunities.

Low compensation and bonus. Do not provide many options of growth within The company.

Management depends on the department. I have been lucky with good managers.

Do not work there
Failure Analysis Technician (Former Employee) –  MaltaJanuary 20, 2019
Started as an amazing place to work then management went down hill, and no one cares for the workers. Management will blame everyone they can, while getting rid of people that actually knew how to do their job.

Productive/Friendly environment
Wafer Technician (Former Employee) –  Essex Junction, VTDecember 16, 2018
This job is in a Clean room environment, production line, you work on your feet all day long 12 hours but you can seat if you want too as long as you have your production line running and don't stop working.I think the hardest part of the job is the 12 hours shift. You can make good friends in the facility in VT. Managers are all good people, everybody is nice there.You can learn a lot of skills as a wafer technician and improve your skills as a production operator.
Pros
Benefits/salary
Cons
long hours

GF was a decent company to work for.
Senior Lab Technician (Former Employee) –  Hopewell Junction, NYDecember 4, 2018
GF changed upper level management. They hired all old IBM managers and then though that our profit margins were not high enough, To improve profit margins GF used IBM ideas, just get rid of people. So I no longer think GF upper management is worth their salt.

Good benefits, many old people

This seems like an okay place to work. The benefits and pay are pretty good, but there are just to many older people working there who are within 2-5 years from retirement.
Pros

Lots of meetings but lots of freedom for self-driven person
Senior Section Manager (Current Employee) –  Malta, NYOctober 31, 2018
Everything is done by meeting but conference rooms are in high demand often forcing delays to when one is available. Most work is unsupervised but also with little direction or resources. Managers are not unified in vision or purpose so there are lots of direction changes with no clear achievable goal. Lots of good people working hard and the interactions are generally great, but the site has had so many losses the culture tends to be a losing one. Perhaps the hardest part of the job is the constant threat of reorganization and getting a poor rating. The rating system is non-transparent and demoralizing. Turn-over seems to be high in most areas and company memory is also lost along with that. The next hardest thing is probably the lack of communication from department leaders. The job does have its good challenges and rewards and there's a lot of motivation both internally and externally to make the place successful.
Pros
Nice work conditions, good cafe, beautiful area, great benefits
Cons
No parking garage is rough during bad weather, forced distribution rating system, old school management style

Good Stepping Stone
Failure Analysis Engineering Tech (Former Employee) –  Malta, NYOctober 29, 2018
My direct management was very good. Can't say the same for upper management. Too laid back. No one followed SOPs. Different shifts did things whichever way they thought was best. As a tech you get paid the same with a bachelors as people with a high school diploma. Room for advancement is mostly into management. They don't give a lot of money in tuition assistance. But great work life balance i loved my shift.
Pros
Work life balance, friendly people, diverse staff
Cons
low pay, poor higher management, risk of lay offs

Member of Technical Staff Device Engineer (Current Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 26, 2018
Management does not understand or knows what is really happening to working engineers.
favouritism occurs strongly, and thus it is not fair to many.
Poor management direction is leading to poor company performance and financial status

New foundry company facing technology challenges.

Need to differentiate and improve continuous.

Multiple semi - autonomous sites with no key controller.

Corporate culture diversity is creating too much conflict.

Fair place to work if you are willing to put in the effort
Senior UPW/W/WWT Technician (Current Employee) –  Albany, NYOctober 24, 2018
Fair place to work if you are willing to put in the effort. The culture is one in which you can learn and grow as an employee, but you will have the most benefit if you are a self-directed learner
