    Pros

    Excellent exposure expecially for fresh graduates. Spansion is more of a "big start-up", allowing a very good environment to learn how complex global organizations work and the challenges they face.

    Cons

    No Bonuses & benefits. Besides the company is havin a downtrend as far as stock price is concerned. The future is risky.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on IT Project Management maturity - this will reap benefits for ROI visibility allowing better calculated investments & also delivery of quality product on time.

    Pros

    If you are good at what you do and don't push back, Spansion will pay you fairly and, if you are lucky, promote you. Keep in mind it's a company that rewards heroes and overtime, not working "smart".

    Cons

    Most of its practices are from very old internal tradition, and it is pretty ingrown in what it thinks are "best practices". In fact it is marginal or poor in areas that it believes it is strong, such as product introduction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go asset light; there is insufficient size or cash to fund being a technology driver and being a high volume low cost manufacturer.
