    I worked at Spectranetics full-time

    Pros

    Even though the company is mid-sized they do operate like a start up but the work life balance is good. Other than that it goes all downhill from there.

    Cons

    The HR at the company are the worst. You can never get a response from them. Either they are lazy or understaffed so they need to figure out a way to get better. If you have an urgent issue forget about it. It takes a number of emails and messages to get any kind of response.
    The management has no clue what they are upto. They come up with random strategies that never work.
    You can participate in ESPP but cannot sell for upto a year.
    401K matching is bad.
    Organisation structure is flat so there is no upward mobility.

    Pros

    Good people, decent benefits, medically useful technology

    Cons

    no employee development, no upward mobility

    Advice to Management

    The right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing, and that prevents company (and employee) progress. Management needs to get their heads out of their backsides and pay attention to what is going on. Sales people aren't the only important part of the company, stop wasting money giving them freebies all the time, pay attention to the working people.

    Pros

    Great technology, good team of field sales people. mid-level management (field) hardworking. Great solutions for complex disease.

    Cons

    it is hypocritical and do as i say not as I do. Values are preached but not lived. Upward mobility is almost impossible internally. Diversity and nepotism seem to be the buzz words.

    Advice to Management

    take off the blinders and look in the mirror.

    I worked at Spectranetics full-time

    Pros

    Very talented sales force in the field. The job in the field is very interesting. That's really just about it.

    Cons

    Management on every level. Sycophant culture of sucking up. No contact with reality (i.e. what's happening in the field). The corporate culture they purport value so much is nothing but hot air. Attract, hire, retain the best talent? Only if your talent is in saying yes, brown-nosing and sucking up. Management has no vision, they constantly are readjusting quarter to quarter, and they will absolutely sell you out to make themselves look good mostly because they have no idea of what they are doing. Avoid working here unless you have no other choice.

    Advice to Management

    Since none of them will leave, maybe they could start by treating your employees decently. Listen to your reps in the field for a change.
