    I have been working at Spok full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Everyone is extremely smart, talented and works hard.
    - Real opportunity to make a difference and be a part of a growing company that wants to do what is right.
    - Culture fosters accountability (likely not a value of those posting neg reviews here!)
    - Fast-paced atmosphere and everyone is encouraged to innovate.
    - Benefits are great, very competitive (no increase in healthcare premiums this year-can't be said for a lot of employers!)

    Cons

    - New employees are expected to perform and meet very high standards (not necessarily a con though)

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring the best of the best. Recognize the effort and hard work of your employees.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Spok (Eden Prairie, MN) in July 2017.

    Interview

    The process was fairly lengthy but that can be attributed to Spok wanting the right candidate for the job. Everyone I encountered during the process was absolutely wonderful. Very friendly recruiters, managers and employees overall in my experience.
