    I worked at Spectrum Signal full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Interesting technology and variety of projects makes for engaging work. Friendly staff. Worldwide customer base gives options for overseas travel.

    Cons

    Location is not great. Parent company (Vecima Networks) is rather cheap - no stock options or special benefits given. Very short-term focus on quarterly results, quarter after quarter after quarter.
    No social culture.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to identify and reward staff who are doing a good job. More social events to keep people happy at work.
