If they are having to sell plants to cover current operating expenses, this charade isn't going to last long. If they can't convince a buyer to take Malta, I give them until the end of the year before they are firing people again, and probably... read more
Just to warn people who might thing they are safe - I was hired and laid off within twelve months. I don't need to tell you what that meant for any kind of severance. I guess I should have better researched GlobalFoundries when I accepted this... read more
Remember when previous CEO said “We got 99 problems but, money ain’t one” Current market conditions determined, that was a lie.
I had to share this from another page - tell me this does not fit GlobalFoundries to a tee: Employers are ideally looking for an employee with the wisdom of a 50 year old, the experience of a 40 year old, the drive of a 30 year old, and the pay scale... read more
This round of GF pivot spin should be even more entertaining after the March denials. What's next?
This company has created a vacuum of talent that has come and gone period. The door continues to swing constantly. All I hear like every week is something new this person left that person left..... constantly. The reputation in Malta is so bad people... read more

https://www.cnn.com/2019/03/08/business/chrysler-building-sale/index.html What an epic fail. Even GF should lose less than 80% when sale and liquidation completes. Proving once again that foolish princes and their sovereign wealth funds are soon... read more

They save money on severance by rehiring. If someone got 6 months severance on nov 28 and they go back now they have to repay the amount covering between now and may 28. Smart business for GF if they find someone desperate enough to work for free... read more
If anybody who quit is still checking this forum - any regrets? Is the grass really greener? I'm really close to making the decision to leave myself, but I keep worrying that I'll be making a huge mistake.
