    Pros

    Formerly before Cypress/Spansion merger great deal of autonomy and trust to do your job. Guidance and training provided with high degree of cooperation from bottom up.

    Salary posted is for an entry level employee doing this job.

    Cons

    After Cypress/Spansion, micro management and low trust. Absolutely no career path upward.

    Advice to Management

    You have hired your employees to do a specific job; let them do it. Show your trust by assigning work and letting the work be completed with minimal input while in process unless asked.
