    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.

    Pros

    Awesome product/market opportunity. Bleeding edge tech. Lots of opportunity to influence the business and your working group. Good benefits (not the best), but they cover all the bases.

    Cons

    Lots of org change recently - oldtimers on their way out, new ones trying to get their feet under them.

    Pros

    This company is dedicated to its customers and employees. Many opportunities to contribute to the company's growth and success. The CEO is passionate about taking the company to the next level. Employees held accountable for actions. Competitive pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Company operates in silos. HR does not foster an environment of trust. Not enough time to properly address all initiatives.

    Pros

    Great office atmosphere - very laid back and low key. Good benefits and time off package.

    Cons

    Lots of people coming and going. Still plenty of lack of accountability. Compensation is low. Career growth is limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    If you can brown nose you will definitely fit in here but you have a lot of good competition at that.

    Cons

    Half of the people are great to work with, however management all around is horrible and treats employees as subhuman and that goes all the way to the top. Wealthy people who think they are superior to you in every form.
    They make drastic cuts to some departments which adversely affect the lower paid employees and the families they support meanwhile other departments hire new employees they do not need, receive catered lunches, fancy hotel suites while traveling etc etc etc. etc etc.
    The HR dept is a mini Gestapo full of suspicion that breathes down the necks of everybody for the most minute reasons, they police and oppress far more than they help out.
    Employee turnover is extremely high, they come and go. Unfortunately most of the people who were here for 5-10 years have jumped ship as a textbook corporate takeover unfolds around them and the parasite of an investment firm sucks away all the life and happiness from a company that was great without them.
    As the company has a quarterly meeting to boast about the surging profits, Christmas bonuses inexplicably end and Christmas Eve is no longer a paid vacation day as it has been since the companies inception..
    This company has become another corporate pump n dump for Bertram Capital and for the life of me I can not figure out how people like them sleep at night, I Imagine on stacks of cash and the souls of the working man.

    Stay Away. you will regret it !!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat ALL Employes well, not just your inner circle !!!

    I have been working at Spireon full-time

    Pros

    About the only thing I can say is paychecks have never been late.

    Cons

    I have been working here for over 3 years. I thought it was bad 2 yrs ago but now it's even worse if that's possible. Company unable to keep the best employees due to long working hours, unrealistic deadlines, incompetent managers, no rewards or even a "pat on the back". To top it all off no raises to speak of and NO bonuses. Company feels it's a "privilege" for an employee to work here and treats employees as expendable. Constant employee revolving door. Company ONLY concerned with profitability so the company looks attractive to be sold.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow up on your own rhetoric. You say employees are your number one resource. Prove it!
