    I worked at Spectral Medical full-time

    Pros

    Occasional company outings. Some employees are cool to get to know.

    Cons

    Management has adversarial attitude towards employees in order to motivate them, including but not limited to: shouting, swearing and accusations with poorly made excuses to cover the mistakes.

    Last but not least, disgruntled employees leaving a mess in the washrooms.

    Advice to Management

    HR and Sales department is a big mess, one begins to think how did they get the job in the first place.

    Pros

    Laid back environment.
    Co-workers are approachable.

    Cons

    Unequal treatment of employees. There is always a sense that one team is more valued than other, which consequently lead to favoritism.
    Unequal distribution of workload. It is not uncommon seeing certain individuals not doing any productive work. Environment is laid back, but it may be too laid back for some people.

    Advice to Management

    None.

    I worked at Spectral Medical full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Small company - challenges you to renew your knowledge in the field.

    Cons

    Unfair Salaries - employees are either paid VERY high or very low in comparison to statistical average in geographical region.

    Child-like Management logic - jumping to conclusion despite evidence supporting the contrary; will not make any effort to motivate employees and treats them similarly to "disposable batteries."

    Lack of Communication skills - Do not expect the minimal level of understanding nor comprehension.

    Do not accept an offer unless it's a life and death situation.

    Advice to Management

    Stop waving your retirement flag, start doing something about department where you feel you shouldn't care about.
