A disappointing, dishonest and exploitative employer

Current Employee - Product Engineer in Sunnyvale, CA

I have been working at Spansion full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

- A selection of on-line training courses are available on the company intranet
- Colleagues at the same or lower level in the company hierarchy are generally helpful
- Spansion is a fast-moving company and has interesting technology to work on

Cons

- Continual and regular (every 18 months) lay-offs make this company a poor career choice. This leads to a culture of everyone being fearful to make important decisions, in case they are the next to be made redundant.
- For a technology company, investment in engineering and supporting the technical growth of engineering staff comes as an afterthought. Spansion is driven by a short-term desire to achieve quarterly fiscal targets, and little else. Long-range, future-orientated planning is non-existent.
- Be extremely cautious and wary of any promises or incentives made to try to get you to 'sign-up' during the interview process.
