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

Pros

Renewed executive management team has been in control since 2009. The company is on a growth path now and investing in new memory technology as well as entirely new product categories. The company is providing employees with new and more opportunities for professional development and training. The people here are amazing - some of the smartest and nicest people I've been around.

Cons

Pace of change and growth could be faster. It is not friendly environment if you like to telecommute.

Advice to Management

Provide employees a bit more flexibility in working, like flex schedules and telecommuting options. Company is quite behind in this respect compared to other valley companies.

    Pros

    Immediate middle managers are respectful to engineers. Work life balance is decent. Immediate team and coworkers feel like a close knit family. Pay is ok. Do a good enough job to be useful to your boss and they will keep you around and give you job security. Spansion is open to switching your role within the company if you are dissatisfied with the current one and want to try something different.

    Cons

    High level executives at vp level view engineers as expendable labor. They manage with negative feedback and like to instill fear among employees. The company culture is all about making aggressive deadlines set by upper management and causing engineers to sacrifice quality of their work. Each department is pit against each other with their own agendas/deadlines so there are inter-dept conflicts. Not much room to grow within a role. It has a big company feel where you will only be working on one portion of a project and feel like just a cog in the machine.

    Advice to Management

    To the upper executives. Try ruling with positive feedback. Motivate employees with something other then fear and minimize any abusive yelling.
