    Pros

    Generally competent management; people are made accountable for what they do or don't do

    Cons

    'Fab-light' business model leaves little room for career advancement; the factory, along with the workforce are getting mature

    Advice to Management

    think beyond the next quarter

  2. When the going gets tough, Spansion kicks out the best

    Pros

    Great place to learn new skills, minimum supervision

    Cons

    When the going gets tough, Spansion employees get RIFed while higher ups get bonuses or small pay cuts

    Advice to Management

    Instead of laying off people, employees should be sent for training so that then the market turns around, the employees are even more knowledgeable
