People are leaving this place on daily bases for greener pastures and I can't figure out how they're finding new jobs. I've been looking for nearly a year now and whatever I find is at least 30-40 percent below what I currently make. Are people... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at GlobalFoundries
My wife and my brother both lost their jobs since the pandemic started. Luckily, I still have a job so it hasn't hit us as hard, but my brother is a mess. His wife quit a while ago to stay home with the kids and now there's four of them with no... — read more

Is there still people to be laid off there? At early 2000, 8300 people worked there in BTV and now little over 2000 after couple of name changes from IBM. Same clueless management running the show so writing is on the wall. Death by many small... — read more

BTV is seeing layoffs a few at a time. Low enough numbers so as not to trigger Vermont state notifications/involvement.
A whole bunch of mini-layoffs that stay off the radar but make sure that none of us ever again have a day of peace here? Because if that's really the case, I'm finally done with this place. I'm even going to volunteer for a layoff, if need be. This... — read more

My kids HS Math and Science teachers are all female and either Asians or Indians 2 with PhDs. I am so pleased! These kids get into much better colleges better scores!
Hearing rumors of layoffs coming? True or folks looking to create churn. On one hand, people are still leaving, so I am confused for the need to layoff vs just stop hiring.
“Layoffs in the middle of COVID-19 pandemic will hurt company image: state and federal legislators (subsidies), local communities (forget employees). Will they manage to keep it silent and still meet the ambitious labor reduction target? Smoke... — read more

I worked at GF for a considerably long time, but have moved on to better opportunities (not saying much, I know). From an outsider's perspective, GlobalFoundries has never met the expectation of the ultra-rich investors. The company has always... — read more

2019 is my last year at GF, there were many good memories away from the work. Good luck to you all and Happy New year.
How was attendance at the annual nobody cares GF road show? Let me guess, empty. I bet everyone enjoyed the 7 nm updates and learning about the roadmap to 5 nm!
I was never very impressed with the guy. I wonder how he will do at Intel? https://www.anandtech.com/show/15226/intel-hires-gary-patton I remember being in a meeting TC saying that we should only start worrying when he leaves. That was about... — read more

Just curious how bad is the bullying in F1 and F8/9/10 especially from mfg department? Shocked at how abusive people can be in F7. Mfg and PC will shout and threaten people AT ALL TIMES just because things didn't go their way. Their mantra is my... — read more

Recently it was reported an employee was released due to breaking GF work ethics policy. In response, GF has gone on offense/retaliation against all non-exempt employees.
What's with all of the current articles about GF "knocking it out of the park" post-pivot. It seems like they have a new PR firm that is winding up the spin machine into overdrive. WSJ? It seems like the new tack is the "advertorial". Here's a... — read more
