This company is a good company to work for. In my position there is alot of travel and physical demand. Which is the hardest part of the job, If you dont mind traveling and staying away from home than this is a great job.
Accounting (Former Employee) – Bloomington, MN – February 6, 2016
Accounting supervisor wants to be more of a "friend" than take leadership as a supervisor. There are a lot of gossips that takes place around the office, when reporting to the direct supervisor about it, was told to look the other way. Accounting supervisor favors certain employees. If you don't fit in with the crowd, you will then get outcast right away. Other departments were ok. Helpful at times.

surgical tech (Current Employee) – sightpath northeast region – August 21, 2013
If you want to give up your personal life to work ...you've come to the right place SPM ... It's like competing with coworkers on a contuinous basis ..no team work!! They will definitely let you know everything you have done wrong and will never let you know what you have done right! The reason why they can't get anyone to stay and their turnover rate is so high is because they set u up to fail!! They waste tons of money! They pay you salary and work you to death! Everything they tell you in the interview is all a lie ... they get you to leave your job and then you find out what it's really all about! Their senior ops in the Greensboro area is terrible and doesn't properly train and prepare you for what your about to get into! One positive note the surgeons are wonderful!
Strong, stable company with good leadership and culture
Headquarters (Current Employee) – Headquarters – December 14, 2012
I really enjoy working at Sightpath. The management team is big on culture and including everyone, so they support lots of activities and team building events to keep morale high. They try to keep people informed which is nice - they have monthly HQ meetings, a fun company intranet, contests, etc. It's a stable, growing company so there is a lot of opportunity for people who are willing to work hard and have a good attitudes. It is busy - and a lot is expected of each employee - so it can be demanding, but that's the trade off for working for a company that is successful even in a bad economy. A good attitude is non-negotiable - so usually people that don't have one don't stick around long. The people are nice, managers are approachable and everyone is so respectful of work/life balance. There is no place else I would rather be - it's a great place to work!
summer hours, fun team building events, opportunity for new challenges
