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

Pros

There is plenty to be happy about at Spansion from a business performance perspective. With positive cash flow for consecutive quarters, it is clear that the executive team (post bankruptcy) know what they are doing, however heartless and greedy they have been while doing it.

Cons

The manufacturing facility is aging and so is the management. There are no opportunities for growth or career progression, as the mid-management team has been set in stone for over a decade. Idle mid-"managers" do a poor job of rewarding excellence and refuse to manage out poor performers.

    Pros

    small team, good work, good learning,

    Cons

    no benefits, no bonus, conventional (no WFHs), longer promotion cycle, not willing to take risks at all, random shutdowns

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should solve their financial issues with newer and better products rather than giving employees unnecessary forced shutdowns.
