    Current Employee - IT Manager  in  Sunnyvale, CA
    Current Employee - IT Manager in Sunnyvale, CA

    I have been working at Spansion full-time for 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.

    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.
