    Pros

    Spectrums always thirsty to find ways to grow and serve the population. The support I receive from Management is like non other. That’s unheard of that the CEO’s and VP’s are so connected with lower level staff, but not unheard of at Spectrum. They care about their employees and the population They/We serve. The drive and energy is amazing in this company. Clinical Supervisors support Counselors substantially

    Cons

    Spectrum only does this big event 1x a year for Staff appreciation (with the exception of other staff appreciation events). I think it should be 2x a year.
