    Pros

    Was great all the way around from Leaders to co-workers WHEN it was Spansion LLC!!

    Cypress Semiconductor bought us and it went down hill FAST!

    Listen to your Spansion Legacy employees who are left. Otherwise the fab will die and it already is because they will not listen to Spansion experts on FAB25..
