Pros

I am confident that Spansion is all set to work towards becoming a great company to work for. I believe with the right mix of products we can once again conquer the memory market.

Cons

Too many old managers who are a little dogmatic and martinets.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Compensation packages should be evaluated especially for junior level engineering team.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    As 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 ManagementAdvice

    Avoid 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.
