    I have been working at Spansion full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Have had a good set of direct managers - fair and easy to work for.
    Telecommuting options.
    Very nice onsite cafeteria in Sunnyvale.
    Good benefits, focus on health, training offered/encouraged.
    Management communication is very good.
    Bonus plan.

    Cons

    After much downsizing, really not any room to grow in the department or transition to other area.
    I struggle with the lingo of a chip manufacturing company, that was not my background, so some times the corp info and training examples are all Greek to me.
    Too much forced vacation going on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep communicating well.
