    Pros

    Great people & great opportunities

    Cons

    Sr Leadership has their heads in the sand, every 6 months there is a shake-up, good people are let go and more people are brought in because the Board wants them there!

    Pros

    Location
    People are generally nice to work with

    Cons

    Company wants to be GE but is now made up mostly of former Covidean employees.
    Company has a practice of firing employees very quickly
    Sr Management want everyone to be "A" players but won't take a look at the composition of their team - plenty of "c" players there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more condescending of employees. Adopting GE's practices of getting rid of the "bottom 10%" is just not what is required in our current growth mode. It is silly. World class companies treat their employees with respect and dignity. This practice of firing employees at a drop of a hat is counter-productive and

    Current Employee - Department Leader in Colorado Springs, CO

    I have been working at Spectranetics full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Executive Leadership has strong vision and strategic plan they are executing on. Communication is strong regarding the vital goals and the role each teammate plays to get the company there. Lots of internal company functions and recognition. Strong Value in pushing innovation, empowerment, urgency, collaboration and customers service. Strong partnership with physicians and health care workers to save and improve lives--feel good mission.

    Cons

    High expectations on quality. High growth means lots of work and not enough time in the day to get it done. Growing from a small company to a mid size company is challenging current employees to raise the bar in everything we do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the strong leadership and focus!

    Rapidly growing company. No room for anything but A-players. Must be able to thrive in a rapidly changing, dynamic environment.

    Continue to agressively invest in innovation.
