- Peers and the direct managers are really nice people. Always willing to help. - Will get a chance to work on the latest technologies and some really smart engineers in the field of telecommunications - Really good vacation & other benefits (health 401k etc) plus good work/life balance Over all, a fun working environment. Sometimes, things get hectic depending on what project you're in, but it is still manageable.
- Things are not how they once were. Few years ago, Spirent was one of the best companies in telecom to work for. Perfectly stable! But,slowly there has been a decline. - Lot of good people are leaving (or being let go) from the company, so the morale is a little down. So, there is always a little fear of hearing bad news (some departments, not all of them). - Very little growth from a career & financial perspective. Overall, it is a good company to gain knowledge and work on the latest cutting edge technologies in telecommunication. However, at the moment, for someone who is looking for a long term growing career, Spirent may not be the right place. But, if Spirent can make a comeback soon, this perspective could change.
Advice to Management
Spirent needs a comeback! Employees working here should feel that this should be a place to stay for a longer term as opposed to constantly looking over their shoulders.
