First year great, second year terrible. Lots of politics and upper management jockeying for positions and power.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Colorado Springs, CO (US)

I worked at Spectranetics full-time for more than a year

ProsNice people to work with. Beautiful location. A lot of dedicated and talented people.

ConsMany directors lack experience and are poor managers. Favorites often get promoted instead of basing on qualifications and experience. Lots of turnover right now, with several new VPs coming onboard.

Advice to Senior ManagementFigure out what you what the company to be when it grows up.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Circus atmosphere, it's not what you have done for me lately, but do we like you!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Colorado Springs, CO (US)

I have been working at Spectranetics full-time for more than 8 years

ProsGreat people & great opportunities

ConsSr Leadership has their heads in the sand, every 6 months there is a shake-up, good people are let go and more people are brought in because the Board wants them there!

Advice to Senior ManagementStop pretending to listen to your people!

Great place to work, smart people, strong leadership.

Senior Product Manager (Former Employee)
Colorado Springs, CO (US)

I worked at Spectranetics full-time

ProsWell communicated mission and vision, strong leadership and a sense of contributing to the goals and accomplishments of the company. Good direction, good products, and good people.

ConsLike most places there is always more to do than time to do it, small teams are expected to deliver a lot of results.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to be inclusive and seek out ideas outside of the executive ranks.

Good place to start a medical sales career

Sales and Marketing (Current Employee)

I have been working at Spectranetics full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThey pay employees well, the product line is unique which is beneficial to patients and hospitals, there is some opportunity for career growth for midlevel employees, offers a unique opportunity for those working in medical device to be in Colorado

ConsManagement team seems misguided in their efforts (self-focused), there is high turnover among employees which is a cause for concern for those looking for a long-term opportunity

SPECTRANETICS IS A MICKEY MOUSE COMPANY

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Spectranetics full-time for more than 5 years

ProsLocation
People are generally nice to work with

ConsCompany wants to be GE but is now made up mostly of former Covidean employees.
Company has a practice of firing employees very quickly
Sr Management want everyone to be "A" players but won't take a look at the composition of their team - plenty of "c" players there.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more condescending of employees. Adopting GE's practices of getting rid of the "bottom 10%" is just not what is required in our current growth mode. It is silly. World class companies treat their employees with respect and dignity. This practice of firing employees at a drop of a hat is counter-productive and

Best Place I Have Ever Worked

Department Leader (Current Employee)
Colorado Springs, CO (US)

I have been working at Spectranetics full-time for less than a year

ProsExecutive Leadership has strong vision and strategic plan they are executing on. Communication is strong regarding the vital goals and the role each teammate plays to get the company there. Lots of internal company functions and recognition. Strong Value in pushing innovation, empowerment, urgency, collaboration and customers service. Strong partnership with physicians and health care workers to save and improve lives--feel good mission.

ConsHigh expectations on quality. High growth means lots of work and not enough time in the day to get it done. Growing from a small company to a mid size company is challenging current employees to raise the bar in everything we do.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the strong leadership and focus!
