Thread regarding GlobalFoundries layoffs

Are there many opportunities at GF?

Recently someone asked me if I would recommend applying here for a job. I didn’t want to say anything because everyone’s experience is different. It may not be a good place for me, but for someone else this may be a dream company, who knows.
Judging by what friends who are in competing companies tell me, it seems to me that there are many more opportunities there than here.

Many prosper because they know how to do bare minimum work but maximum kissing up. They're the ones who always speak repetitively and loud at meetings without adding to the conversation. We all know him/her.

@3vtd needing a certain degree is a myth. Plenty of techs have been promoted to IC/Eng ladder without a 4 year degree. Managers are passing the buck on that one.

The people who has sponsorship the company will help you and continue to sponsor you without doubt, however, you will see less and less new grads, because they like the citizens that will cause less. The problem is the brilliant kids will not accept the offers once you give them the offer. I see many times this year that manager try to hiring people from RPI but no one accept the offer. Another issue is they don’t willing to promote the techs to engineer and most of excuses are you don’t have degree even they have more experience than the new grads. This company’s HR and senior leaders are jokes, everything is cost saving but when bad things happens they spent more money to try to fix it.

is this a new policy? I am pretty sure half of the people I work with are L or H visa, maybe less now since some got their GCs

@OP people always ask where I work, then ask how I like it. I just say "it's a job" and they get the idea

If you are citizen, fresh graduated and live in local area, there are a lot of opportunities otherwise no, they don’t want to pay for the experience engineers and visa holder. That is our HR directly tell the hiring manager.

I agree with the original poster. I think it depends on the department and if the candidate’s expectations are met

Its funny, if you go and look at other similar boards for companies within this industry, you'll find people complaining.

I've been in the industry a long time, worked for more than a few players. It's the same... Many people can't handle the industry, others prosper.
