$2.000 referral for techs level 2-5 plus sign on bonus. Don't do it. Techs are treated unfairly by prod managers with 6 mois. post college. Better options w/ better pay locally.

Was everyone pumped at the ice cream social, after missing out on the important tent with critical HR and facilities workers. We know they make this place successful and needed to be with leadership team. Woooo (Rick flair voice). Seriously though... — read more
Heard from a family friend who is a fan 10 SLT and still in touch with TC that intel will be buying fab 8 and 9 while fab 10 transitions over to ON. Title changes were due to intel structure and a way to justify layoffs. Be warned and be... — read more

anyone hear about this? Significant impact in Malta, and teams at other fabs. Little or no rebadging as well. Wondering what the scope and true impact is. I am guessing most people don't interact with IT engineering teams.
At least not since I've been working here. It has always been there but now it’s awful what’s going on. It seems to me that favoritism has never been greater and it is no longer even a secret here. And how can someone be motivated to keep working... — read more
Please spread the word to your coworkers. Woman in HR was talking about how there is a buffer what senior leadership sees from employees. That buffer is Mackenzie. The company brought in to lean and cost cut at the expense of the employees and just... — read more

Has anyone heard any new rumors about layoffs? The atmosphere is very tense. I've never been this demoralized and less motivated to work.

What is the motive behind this move? Cost cutting for the IPO? Are they planning to get rid off Santa Clara office? Or, is the move meant to strengthen and streamline the fab process as they mentioned?
With the current CEO about to complete 3 years, and GF in its 12th year and eyeing an IPO, I think it's perfect time for the board to show commitment to gender equality and D&I by hiring a woman CEO. None of the 4 CEOs so far, nor any of the current... — 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
Manufacturing employees are the overlooked stepchild at GF. Its time to show your worth. What other group can be shoveled around like mere pawns on a chess board. Being sacrificed for the knights, queens and rooks. Getting 12 hour notice that you're... — read more
