Set expectations for a short-term career

I worked at Spansion

ProsPay scale competitive and management treats employees fairly and with respect. Offers a challenging and face paced work environment.

ConsAs a "Memory Semiconductor" company, cash and profits will always be a struggle. Set Spansion career expectations for short-term employment. Keep resume updated and active. Poor CEO/management decisions put company in bankruptcy. Many empolyee's upset about short notice layoff in early 2009, but this is part of working for a company struggling to make a profit in a very tough market environment.

Advice to Senior ManagementAvoid double standards with VP & Executives versus the rank and file. During the 2008/09 furlough days (and paycuts) there was a clear double standard as VP's were exempt from the paycut. Rank and file definately felt slighted and rightfully so.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
