    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Fairly relax atmosphere
    Decent medical benefits
    The company definitely helps improve the quality of life of the people who use the excimer lasers.
    Many people today would not have a leg(s) (having them amputated) because of severe peripheral artery diseases or worse.

    Cons

    Management doesn't really understand how to motivate employees.
    Too many chiefs, not enough indians.
    The dental benefits could definitely be improved, same coverage as the 1980s
    The product works extremely well, it just has not been marketed appropriately or effectively to those who have used it.
    Many top level managers are just too inflexible. The primary reason for doing nearly anything is “that’s just the way it’s always been done.” I have heard many people within the company complain that we are just missing too many opportunities because of corporate arrogance. It almost seems the upper management is confusing rigidity for values. There is also an expected resistance when offering new ideas to the company.

    Advice to Management

    Seek out talent from within the company - Don't be so quick to hire outside people when you have plenty of talent right here

    I worked at Spectranetics (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great peer group who are better qualified than the next level management. If your face fits you'll be ok

    Cons

    Great products However the management are not at all good. Micromanage is all they do. Passing the buck every time They are not experienced enough. However they actually believe they are so superior

    Advice to Management

    Start to practice what you preach. Retain and develop?? Just doesn't happen
