The cafe' buffet last several hours, the masala tea is now one dispenser instead of two (fresher?) no line in the cafe at any hour, always plentiful seating in the cafe, no more rush hour, plenty of parking spaces, so many spaces, (wipes tear), they're removing some to make walkways ? so many pivot success stories. everyone seems happier, at least the cleaning person, less mess to clean up and since i'm the only one in shouting distance of my desk, the cleaning person is the only person I see routinely. I wonder if anyone knows i still work here.

Less paperwork! As a manager I used to have a lot of people reporting to me, and this time of year was stressful and tedious what with all the review paperwork and goal settings needing to be completed for my many busy bee workers. But now I have no one reporting to me. No more paperwork. Less stress. More efficient. Pivot Power Up!

Always an open table! I remember putting some serious effort into hunting for an open table at noon in the café. Now its no sweat at all. Up front, by the window, or in the back out of sight so we can gossip about who quit, who's leaving and the usual GF drama. What do we want? Pivot! When do we want it? Now! Goooooooo Pivot!

To the original Post Troll:

"Gotta be pretty rough spending your precious time on earth at a company you don’t believe in. Can’t imagine what a sad individual you must be. Waking up and driving to a place you want nothing to do with. What a life! Losers, guarantee you’d be broken without GF."

Let me guess your still looking for job, while still making time to put at least 12 hours a day on Assassin's Creed PS4? And no you probably will never leave the state, to another company, why? Why not, mom and dad are paying bills.

Since the lay offs the "blonde cafeteria kiosk girl", seems to be in a better mood, with less of line of orders. Which means our specialty ordered coffees or smoothies is always a success. Go Pivot!!!!!.

The company will be turning a profit now that we've realigned our products with our customer's needs. The pivot is proving to be a big success and our successfull products will translate into more pay and a nice bonus for our employees. There are even healthy promotions in the works now for our people who are loyal to the Pivot vision. Dont believe the hype, we are on track for success!!

Facilities stopped blocking the aisles by putting extra cubicles there. My area is less of a fire hazard now. Safety win!

Extra monitors! We picked up so many from the empty cubes.

Everyone has 2 now, some people with newer docking stations experiment with connecting 3.

The site has improved efficiency since the Pivot. I never wait in line for coffee anymore. It saves me at least 30min a day given the number of times I visit the cafe.

I am feelin' groovy since all those successful companies with long range plans now have "Pivot Envy" of GF.

(Previous poster: No need to have someone turn off the lights, given the number of "power events" we've had from NatGrid, it will likely take care of itself before too long.)

Pivot is great! It’s a great public relations ploy so we can keep deceiving the community and taxpayers. They will be so sad to have this big old building to fill. If they thought old munitions were interesting in a discovery dig, wait until they find all those chemicals and goodies underneath this place! Those janitors we hired that got a chance to be a “tech” will have their third act as excavator operators... but remember to wear respirators and wipe your feet! Oh, and the last one out, please turn off the lights! Wheeeee!

My success story: since the senior level, experienced engineers are all gone, I get to pick up their projects and at the same time managers up my chain have more time on focusing on me since they have half the amount of people reporting to them. This should give me more time to score brownie points with management, so I can hopefully join their ranks and be immune to layoffs each time we let more of those high cost item engineers go. Who needs engineers at an engineering company anyway? Go GF! Go Pivot!

Its a lot easier to reserve a meeting room now. And as an added benefit no one shows up so I can have the room all to myself for job hunting and phone interviews.

The pivot and layoff made me feel valuable since I was not one of the people laid off. Personally this helps with my self esteem. I feel like a winner even though I got no prize. So that's a pivot success in my book.

The “power desks, up-down-up-down...” was probably left over from an “older employee” who sued GlobalFoundries for their workers comp benefits and won a bunch of money for treatment and penalty when GlovalFoundries fires them simply for requesting the State-entitled benefit! Yes, that happened! GlobalFoundries was, still and will always be a mismanaged mess of Middle East Patriarchal scammers!

Well, we can brag on social media that we are part of a hip, cool company because we are "pivoting". (So inventive the way you chose the biz buzzword of 2018, Mr Caulfield.)

Oh I have one! All the angry people w/ no sense of humor (and never heard of sarcasm) don't work in Malta anymore. Way to go on messing up a perfectly good meme. What kind of ___ rages about hating GF on someone making fun of GF? If you weren't so angry you'd realize you're preaching to the quire!

I got a job out west. Beautiful scenery, tons of outdoor activities, less regulation of life by state and local govt, and half the cost of living. I sold my house immediately, and my family loves that we have moved. Success story on all counts!

Well "Gotta be", it must be pretty rough spending your precious time on Earth working for a company that doesn't believe in you and that treats employees as nothing more than a fixed cost that they need to reduce (that doesn't count managers, though). Also, why would be "broken" without GF? Do they have some magical way of piecing people together? Because I haven't seen it.

After the pivot, burger bonanza day is so much better. They actually cook it all the way through!
