Good and very large company with some directional issues
FP&A Manager corporate (Current Employee) –  SingaporeAugust 30, 2018
Long days at work, a lot of areas to explore and learn from.
Management is good but under too much pressure, most of them very highly educated. Culture is ok, can get very political but that is normal.
Most enjoyable part of working for GF was constant exposure to C level and working with them side by side. This provides opportunity for learning outside the scope of normal job routine.

It is fun place to work as very technical intensive.
Manager (Former Employee) –  WoodlandsJuly 3, 2018
Though as 2nd largest foundry, too far from the first position. Unable to catch up to the scale of economy and therefore the return.
Also some damage done from the earlier management take times to recover.
Pros
Lot of challenges to drive for continuous improvement
Cons
Old Culture by the company hard to change

Good learning but not for life job
ETCH Equipment Engineer (Current Employee) –  SingaporeMarch 9, 2018
For fresh graduates, it really give you an insight of a manufacturing company working culture. However, there are some improvement in the culture of the company management. Good experience working here but not for a lifetime. As an equipment engineer, there is less work-life balance. The pay is rather sufficient but it only for those who can cope and adapt with unexpected long hours and stress from the management.

Productive and knowledgeable workplace
Principal Associate Engineer (Current Employee) –  Woodlands Industrial Park DApril 17, 2018
Productive workplace as activity is continuously moving everyday. I learned a lot from Part Management, Preventive Maintenance, and Line Supporting activities. The hardest part of the job is when too many machines were down and we need it to be up to production to meet our daily move target. The most enjoyable part of the job is when doing PM all together as one team.
Pros
Quarterly Bonus, quarterly team bonding allowance, Free shuttle up to nearest MRT.
Cons
Cafeteria too crowded

Working culture not good
Engineer Facilites Engineering (Current Employee) –  Tampines, S528830January 26, 2015
Working culture, management and job advancement are very important factors, especially for person like me who had just graduated from university 3 years ago. Young and hence energetic to work and grow my personal career. However, the organisation and management is somehow getting more and more management level executives, while the one who doing work still the same. The efficiency of the inverted pyramid working styles is somehow make the life of bottom worker difficult, as the management personnels (meaning your boss, your boss's boss, other section boss) will come to you in different timing for same issue or asking you doing few jobs and same time. This greatly reduces working efficiency. A best working culture is the organisation must have a clear direction (which now the company lack of), a clear organisation chart and follows (which the company isn't; the organisation is just for display).

However, most enjoyable for me in this company is still, there are still good managers around (not my immediate boss) who still supporting and teaching me quite a lot. So he do let me to feel good at the work place, at least. Maybe I'm just good luck.
Pros
Good basic salary
Cons
No OT claims (Engineer level and above), 7/24 hrs standby, bad management.

CAD Engineer (Former Employee) –  Singapore, S00May 29, 2014
I have learned how to become more productive in work by having delegate time management skills. The challenging part in this job is most of the client information are confidential and stricty prohibited from others including employees from the same company. Thus, the discussion and negotiation with customer without exposing any confidential data is an essential skill to master.
Pros
High salary
Cons
Long hours in a closed space environment due to confidential information

Management issue
Member of Technical Staff (Current Employee) –  SingaporeNovember 8, 2017
GF is a good company, but the management style in some fabs (such as Asia) is not good.
The management decision is not technical base but more is personal base.
The relationship with the customers mostly is not respectful.
The relationship between HR and the management is so friendly (nice), but the problem is HR is never to help employees, but only to help the managers. So, If you assume there is a person of trust sitting in HR to listen and help you, you are wrong.

Over matured line of business with limited room for improvement
