    Pros

    Too much information to process during training. You are expected to have superior quality score the first day on the floor.

    Cons

    Great pay and work schedule. It's Monday thru Friday. The latest schedule you are out the door by 5:00pm

    Advice to Management

    Training should be longer and the trainees should be allowed to take their notes home to review.

    The company has made some positive changes over last year or so in terms of the people and products. There seems to be a shift towards doing the right things and doing things right.

    Cons

    There is still some old school mindset that will take time to go away.

    Pros

    Finally, the big egos have made their way out the door - it's been an overdue cleanup. I'm looking forward to the future.

    Raffles at the holiday party are awesome!

    Cons

    Don't agree with everything CEO does, but he is respectable.

    Coffee is cold except for the nice machine in the kitchen.

    Advice to Management

    If you don't actually do what you promised to do in the roundtables you will see more people leave.

    I have been working at Spireon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    About time Spireon's owners realized what Spireon needed to move this ship forward

    With the departure of a few who controlled areas of the business with "the good ole boys club attitude " we see that the culture within Spireon has changed for the best .
    There is a breathe of fresh air running through the powers to be & it surely has made a change .
    We appreciate the adoption and changes occurring as needed .
    There are a few new additions that have been brought in from outside who seem to really care about getting up to speed but I recommended promote from within if you can
    The best part is our new CEO is finally connected with the right folks to take this to the next level
    In the org .
    Spireon has some dedicated hard working knowledgeable sales personal getting us back on track - 2 thumbs up !!!!

    Cons

    Bringing in new employees from outside the industry, who in return bring in there friends
    that's a huge NO NO stop that. Thats bad mojo within the ranks
    Don't go backwards - promote from within MR CEO

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for removing the poison

    I have been working at Spireon full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The experience I've been provided at Spireon has been second to none. In the time I have been here, I have learned lots from the mentors in my team and have had multiple opportunities to get involved in cross-functional teams to gain exposure across the company. Upper management and HR is creating new initiatives and encouraging vertical communication to develop a culture of positivity and productivity.

    Cons

    I haven't personally experienced too many negatives during my time here. I've heard about grievances from other employees, but upper management and HR are listening and taking the right steps to take Spireon to the next level.

    Advice to Management

    Keep encouraging communication and continue to provide development opportunities for employees.
