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

    Pros

    The people. There are really fun passionate people here. We do work hard, sometimes long hours - but hard work is definitely rewarded here. I like that there is not as much politics here as I've experienced in other companies ... that everyone has a voice and an opportunity to make a difference.

    Cons

    Some time the hours are long.

    Advice to Management

    It would be great to hear what the other departments are working on when we do the state of union meetings ...

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

    Pros

    I've worked many places in my life, and none of them compare to Spireon. I am very pleased with the work environment, my co-workers (zero cattiness, everyone gets along), the management, and over-all atmosphere.

    The benefits are great, pay is competitive, HR really does listen and acts.

    This company is amazing, growing by leaps and bounds every single day. I can honestly say I am Proud to work here, what we stand for, and where we are going. Not a day goes by that I am not happy to get up in the morning and drive to work. I am 1000% happy and plan on never leaving!

    Cons

    There does seem to be some disorganization. However I believe that this is because of the speed of our growth. It's sometimes difficult to know everything that is going on when new things are upon us every day!

    Advice to Management

    More of our "Town Hall Meetings" would be good. Give everyone a chance to be in the "know", give us the broader picture...some kudos for all of our hard work. Otherwise you are fantastic!

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

    Pros

    If you are a self-starter and don't need to have your hand held, then this is a great place to work. We have the freedom and flexibility to make a decision and run with it. There's a high level of accountability, room to grow, and you will never be bored. From top-down, everyone, and yes, I mean EVERYONE, is working hard to make this company successful. The people are smart, fun and motivated.

    Cons

    It's a start-up, so resources are limited, and we're still building an infrastructure. This explains the long hours. However, I have friends who work at much bigger companies, putting in the long hours, and not necessarily getting recognized for their efforts.

    Advice to Management

    More, and better, open communication on how the company is performing.

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

    Pros

    I have found everyone I work with at Spireon to be positive people who are striving to improve the company. The culture is lighthearted - people are busy but they have fun and are not overly serious or stressed. I have plenty of projects to work on and the departments I work with value my contribution. My manager is a great person who cares for me personally and professionally and makes working fun. I have had nothing but positive interactions with the CEO and the whole management team is focused on taking the company to a new level of performance. The pay and benefits are good. The facility in Irvine is well equipped. Upper management communicates well with the employees. Employees are highly committed to the company. I have the technology I need to go my job. I joined the company recently and have not felt this good about my employer in a long time.

    Cons

    Prioritization can be challenging with so many things to do. There is a lot of change going on, and there are a few people who are not embracing it.

    Pros

    I’ve been an employee of Spireon for 15 years. I find it to be a very positive challenging place to work. My team works closely together and their positive attitudes help us to reach our goals.

    Keep going on the path. The changes are needed and everyone will benefit from these in the end.
