    Pros

    It is a small company where everyone knows each other. Most of the engineers are real nice. You don't have to focus on on one small portion of the projects as there are always many different things that you could work on.

    Cons

    The money is pretty bad. The location is bad. The opportunities for advancement are real bad. There are only a few engineers out of the ~125 person company. Most of the other employees are really against any change that one would try to implement.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open. Give more money for R&D.

    I worked at Spectrum Control full-time

    Pros

    Building is warm in the winter and has A/C for the hot summer months

    Cons

    Beware of sending your son or daughter there to work. They do no drug testing or background check, they will basically hire anyone there. And a there is lot of bad going on with the employees. Its a minimum wage workforce. For someone who has a bad record its a place to work. So be careful if you are looking for a job and you are a decent person move on. I did

    Advice to Management

    Get involved with drug testing and background checks before and after hiring. And keep track of your employees instead of ignoring problems

    I have been working at Spectrum Control full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    People on the floor keep the company going.

    Cons

    Supervisor talks about the people on the floor, when it is no ones business. Manager for production has not business being in that position. A lot of confusion.

    Advice to Management

    To bad they let go the wrong people that worked from 2009-2011, the company was finally getting somewhere at the massachusetts plant.

    Pros

    The managers are knowledgeable and competent. The company itself is competitive, and they produce high quality manufactured goods. Most of the longer term employees are nice, and have been working there for a long period of time.

    Cons

    The compensation is not particularly great. The employees all seem to run out the door the very minute is becomes 5 o'clock. If you look around at the other employees, you can see how limited the opportunity for advancement is. Managers are constantly busy, and you are always attempting to track them down.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage employees to further their education. Communicate with other employees on a regular basis. It can be irritating to search the whole facility for a manager/director all the time.
