    Pros

    working condition is not that competitive, coworkers are friendly and helpful. Spansion a good place to work if you are not a very ambitious person. Ample opportunity to learn and grow.

    Cons

    nothing much to say about the cons, I really enjoy working in Spansion. I think the compensation is comparable to similar companies in the valley.

    Pros

    Had a good manager. Various systems and processes in place. Promote continuous improvement. Some good legacy from AMD.

    Cons

    Mid management too worry about themselves and suck up to the upper management. Constant pressure on cost reduction. Relatively high turnover rate. No internal transfer opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck with the merger with Cypress.

    Pros

    I work with some of the best, smartest, most capable people I've met in my working life. The current executive management has taken a struggling company and made it a lean, efficient and thriving entity. My middle management is fair, hard working, and works wonders with very limited resources.

    Cons

    We're in the midst of being acquired by another company which will result in a shake up of executive and middle management. I'm afraid the management style is about to revert back to what it was after spinning off of AMD, which was out-dated and not employee focused. I found it to be an unhappy and unhealthy working environment back then.

    Advice to Management

    Don't ruin the company with archaic attitudes towards employees and the workplace. Learn what it takes to retain talent in the modern workplace, empower people to achieve excellence and recognize their accomplishments.

    Pros

    Good work-life balance. Friendly co-workers and a lot to learn if you want to. Good Sonic Boom Wellnes program for employees

    Cons

    The annual target profit sharing percentage is never achieved due to many management factors, normally you can get from 70% to 80% of the target.

    Advice to Management

    Every employee should get the full target profit percentage allocated by the company for the quarter

    Pros

    I reccomend especially Application Engineer positions because they are very important for daily promotion and solution development. In general, we always have a problem with the resource of Field Application Engineer and it directly impacts on business.

    Cons

    You can get multi-culture environment because we collaborate globally for example solution developments, new product spec difinition and homepage design.

    Advice to Management

    Need to consider both short term (daily promotion, technical support, etc) and long term strategy (roadmap, target market and position.)


  10. It's an OK company to work for but they pay new hires better than long-term employees

    Pros

    Insurance is about the only good thing anymore

    Cons

    Each individual is doing the work of 4 people and more is being asked from them every quarter. Cost cutting has gotten ridiculous with the age of the equipment - it has to be fixed or replaced

    Advice to Management

    Recognize people who have stuck it out all these years, went to school and got the degree that was asked of them and attended all classes given by the company and adhered to their rules
