    I have been working at Cypress Semiconductor full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work. Competitive pay. Good, talented, hardworking people. There is a great level of experienced talent. Management and the outlook of Fab25, Austin, TX looks bright. Dont judge the new company based on former Spansion LLC management who were only trying to survive.
    I encourage talented engineers to apply.

    Cons

    The first few years transitioning from Spansion to the New Cypress was a challenging time for everyone. There was too much focus on cost of operations and cost reduction. Bright engineers were forced out and technicians were pulled into engineering positions.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more engineers. Make Cypress great again -a real engineering company!
    More masters & PHD level engineers!

    After the merge with Spansion, Spansion people bring a lot of their culture which is not as good.

    Pros

    Great Products and good benefits

    Cons

    Good ole boy mentality. It is not what you know, it is who you know. Cypress people automatically purge people from companies they acquire without proper vetting.

    Advice to Management

    Make decisions based on knowledge and capabilities

    Pros

    Good pay but benefits going down.

    Cons

    Horrible management. Don't care at all about employees. Lie to employees all the time and think we believe them. Can't wait fo leave. Morale is at the bottom of the barrel. Most employees are disgruntled and actively pursueing othe jobs. Everyone hates going to work and just does enough to get by.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and smell the roses. If you treat employees badly they will treat you the same and not do a good job. No one cares about their job and that is a recioe for disaster. Try to helo emoloyees not screw them over JB.
