    Pros

    Strong Senior Leadership that has completely turned the culture around in a positive way. In addition, employees have an opportunity for career growth.

    Cons

    When sales are lagging, sales management tends to think short term and make deals with hospitals that hurt long-term business.

    Great people & great opportunities

    Cons

    Sr 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!

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Many 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 ManagementAdvice

    Figure out what you what the company to be when it grows up.

    Pros

    Well 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.

    Cons

    Like 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 ManagementAdvice

    Continue to be inclusive and seek out ideas outside of the executive ranks.

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

    Pros

    Executive 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.

    Cons

    High 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 ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the strong leadership and focus!

    Pros

    Great culture based on shared values. Smaller company where individuals matter. Environment is like working for a startup company, without the personal financial risk. Great business performance (consistent +10% per quarter sales growth and great stock performance). Opportunity to work on cutting edge products in live in family-friendly Colorado Springs!

    Cons

    Rapidly growing company. No room for anything but A-players. Must be able to thrive in a rapidly changing, dynamic environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to agressively invest in innovation.
