Pros

People are Spansion's best asset! When I first came to Spansion I thought there is no other place Id rather be at. It is great going in to work and seeing everyone. Most of the older staff is very nice and helpful and pleasant to talk to. The spirit is high, and people treat each other with respect.

Cons

The company is doing pretty poorly financially, and as a result the layoffs are becoming more frequent and the benefits are getting worse. New management is treating people poorly. Aggressive people with very little people skills are becoming in charge.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

People that worked for Spansion for 20+ years are pretty disappointed with some of the new changes. Don't allow some of the new and unexperienced management to treat employees the way they do lately.
