    I have been working at Spireon full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Have been at Spireon for a few months and have had a great experience thus far. Work environment and culture are great and my manager gives me the autonomy and trust to do what I need to do to get my job done. Sure, the company is going through growing pains and there are people whining about how that affects their work and how they've "always done things" a certain way, but in the grand scheme of things, to take the company to the next level, things HAVE to change. It's exciting, people! Embrace it!

    Cons

    Nothing really so far. Can't wait to move to the new building - the existing building looks cool at first glance, but look closer and you'll see that the place is pretty run down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the communication flowing and maintain transparency.

    I have been working at Spireon (more than an year)

    Pros

    Company is making the type of changes needed to become a real technology company and cleaning up the mess left over from years of incompetent leadership and an environment that tolerated mediocrity.

    Management investing in training of the engineering staff and hiring more engineers.

    Fast paced environment.

    Salary and benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Lots of change and sometimes the company tries to do too much. Not enough empowering of employees and teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to invest in employees to prepare them for more senior positions. Focus on building an environment where employees and teams are empowered.

    Pros

    My immediate supervisor was accomadating to scheduling/ working from home.

    Cons

    There was no accountability in my department. Spireon is a family business trying to be a real company. The culture is one where there is little trust or incentive to work together. Upper management pits employees against each other and rewards underminded behavior in the sales force. When I was hired in November 2011, I was promised a substantial raise. In the almost 3 years I was there, I took 2 paycuts despite excellent performance and reviews. Ultimately, this is why I left. Employees in offices outside the corp headquaters are treated like step children and I would advise anyone interviewing for this company to beware!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put your money where your mouth is and compensate your employees. Current upper sales management should not be in charge of customer support/ account management positions. Development is far behind what you can deliver to your clients.

    Pros

    This company has had some struggles finding itself in the past but is currently transforming itself into a world class engineering organization. Leadership is thoughtful about how to grow talent. Engineers are encouraged to influence the organization. Great opportunities for solving interesting problems and working with very cool tech.

    Cons

    Currently lots of organizational change. The culture is changing fast, I think for the better. I'm hoping all this change results in clarity soon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs to foster an environment of positive reinforcement. Research salaries to offer employees competitive rates.
