Current Employee - Senior Engineer in Sunnyvale, CA

I have been working at Spansion full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

1. work-life balance. for people who have kids this is a great place to work for because you can use your kids as excuse to go home early and take days off. single people can't do either of those.
2. most people are nice people, but not all.

Cons

1. bad senior management. there is absolutely no (or little) respect for engineers or people who actually do the work.
2. no career advancement. there are way too many vps and managers in this company so unless they get fired there is no way people can get promoted.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

need to learn to treat the employees with respect.

    Current Employee - Senior Manager in Sunnyvale, CA

    I have been working at Spansion full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Renewed executive management team has been in control since 2009. The company is on a growth path now and investing in new memory technology as well as entirely new product categories. The company is providing employees with new and more opportunities for professional development and training. The people here are amazing - some of the smartest and nicest people I've been around.

    Cons

    Pace of change and growth could be faster. It is not friendly environment if you like to telecommute.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide employees a bit more flexibility in working, like flex schedules and telecommuting options. Company is quite behind in this respect compared to other valley companies.
