Painful to work when you are surrounded by people who were quickly unfairly promoted, who are 1 to 4 levels above you, and you know you are much smarter than them? If you are stuck to the area and can't leave GF, what do you do? Quiet quitting! which... — read more
A reply in a different thread has me asking this question. Why exactly do some of you say the review system is fake? They are pretty clear that a limited number of people will get high ratings. "not to exceed 12%" or whatever the verbiage is. So... — read more

So was there truth to the posting in this forum few weeks ago about GU which was removed quickly? Was that the reason for this departure? Does it have something to do with ER's departure too? Anyway, good riddance. Lot of level 10s and up to Sr VPs... — read more
Just got “word” of another round of compensation adjustments due sometime in Q4. Let’s hope it’s better than the last round
Anyone else notice a large increase in level 7 senior management with zero management experience. Was it not the point to have level 6 management first?
Is it just me or can anyone else see Malta jobs posted recently?
I hoped that attrition would slow down and that the company would stabilize a bit, but it seems that employees will continue leaving in large numbers for a long time to come?

I worked at several companies before I came to GF, but this one is definitely the champion when it comes to misleading employees. That's my opinion. I think almost everyone can give an example of when they felt the most mislead here?
It looks like design related positions… But those in malta and fishkill area if you want to jump ship….. https://jobs.amd.com/job/Fishkill-Interconnect-RTL-Design-Engineer-New/906540900/

Well, disappointment after disappointment, I’ve decided to leave GlobalFoundries. The toxicity and ineptitude here is on a level I’ve never experienced, and I’ve had some sh---y jobs.. Do this for my own physical and mental health.. f’ this place — read more
Saw they vested in the Fidelity account. Yet sell Option is not available and the grants haven’t been taxed.. Couple of days?
I’m hearing that everyone (Malta) who usually gets their paycheck deposited this morning isn’t seeing it yet… What’s going on in that HR/Payroll department?!
Been reading some posts on here and bring a counter point. It’s funny, I observe the same people who complain about too much work, not enough people are also the lowest of performers in the company who tend to bask in the tedious day to day status... — read more

My bet is on the finance guy. Anyone else comes to mind?
Raises will hit for Level 1-5. Rumor is 5% immediately. Job level 6 will get equity options that reach maturity in 2 years. That is at least something for some people. For J6+ enjoy your raise in 2 years. Because you know inflation only hit... — read more

I made a big mistake when I came here. I thought GF was a much better organized company. Turns out this is a big mess. I guess it wasn't so disorganized in the past?
It's June and the exodus has begun
Now I can't help but roll my eyes when the manager starts promising promotion. I feel terrible because I wasted my time here because I really believed in what the manager was saying. How many times have you been promised getting promoted... — read more
Interns should be joining our teams soon. How much are they making this year? $30hr still? Higher than the average technician wage right?
I see a lot of posts criticizing HR here, but it's not clear why the posters are being critical. The posts are like "get rid of HR", but mostly without cause or reason. Without getting too specific, why?
I have been working here for a long time and I have witnessed bad times before. However, back then everyone hoped that things would change for the better and they really did get better after a while. This time, it seems that no one believes that... — read more
