I have been working at Spansion full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Very high levels of accountability, strong commitment to continuous improvement, stable work force. Very experienced management team.

Cons

A bit tight with cash, deteriorating human resources practices. Misalignment of bonus system with overall corporate and department success. Compensation is generally good, more or less aligned with the remainder of the sector.

Advice to Management

Be careful of alienating highly experienced people. You need them. Clean up the bonus system, it does not seem to be well aligned with overall corporate performance.

    I have been working at Spansion as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pros - Cant thing of any

    Cons

    Regular lay offs with a long trail of dead bodies. Be extremely cautious of any promises or incentives made to try to get you to sign up. Everyone is protecting their own interest versus making good choices in order to prevent from being the next to go.

    Advice to Management

    Change the corporate culture

    I have been working at Spansion full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - A selection of on-line training courses are available on the company intranet
    - Colleagues at the same or lower level in the company hierarchy are generally helpful
    - Spansion is a fast-moving company and has interesting technology to work on

    Cons

    - Continual and regular (every 18 months) lay-offs make this company a poor career choice. This leads to a culture of everyone being fearful to make important decisions, in case they are the next to be made redundant.
    - For a technology company, investment in engineering and supporting the technical growth of engineering staff comes as an afterthought. Spansion is driven by a short-term desire to achieve quarterly fiscal targets, and little else. Long-range, future-orientated planning is non-existent.
    - Be extremely cautious and wary of any promises or incentives made to try to get you to 'sign-up' during the interview process.

    Advice to Management

    Put the interests of the company before your own!
