    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.
