    Spansion was born out of AMD (Advanced Micro Devices). A good company with good benefits. Employee oriented.

    I have been working at Spansion full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fair pay and good benefits

    Cons

    Work can be monotonous and work politics are starting to be a pain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the cronyism. Start rebuilding the company loyalty that AMD once fostered. Monitor the engineers.

    Current Employee - Manager in Sunnyvale, CA

    I have been working at Spansion full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    - Opportunity abounds -- for the company and for the individual who is motivated and inspiring
    - Smart, but humble executive management
    - Inspirational, smart, and genuinely nice CEO (rare combo)
    - I have a superior manager - one of the best in my career and also one of the best at the company. However, I've noticed that there are a lot of really good managers here. How often do you hear that?!

    Cons

    - IT support is pretty poor
    - Still a few people from the AMD days who've been through the worst of times here that need to recalibrate their enthusiasm up a notch.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Jump in all the way with the HMI vision. Invest enough in the disruptive innovation to get us to the next phase. It's the right time.

    A lot of opportunities to perform and good works are appreciated. It still retains AMD culture. Upper managerment and leaderships are strong and forward looking. Clear goals and realistic targets are set and communicated regularly.

    Cons

    Investors are still not confident of company performance in the near term.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review forecasted data regularly.
