HATED IT
Slave (Former Employee), VancouverAugust 28, 2013
Pros: six weeks holidays
Cons: the 'manager' of my department had severe mental issues, she was a harsh micromanager, she is crazy and in turns works very hard at making you crazy, i would call this bullying on the job, her sidekick didn't help - watched every move i made.
Typical work day - shuffling useless/needless papers around, creating make work projects, basically doing nothing of value. What did I learn? Nothing - well, no, not true, I learned that if you have no personality and are a robot you will do fine there. Co-workers - a joke - I hated everybody. The hardest part of going to my job was walking in the door. – more... There was no enjoyable part of the job. – less

Mechanic II (Former Employee), Chambersburg, PAMay 14, 2013
Pros: chirstmas cook outs
Cons: the healthcare is not very good at all
Well Management is ok but they are not around a lot for you to talk to is all. My co-workers are very good people everyone will help the other person to get the job done. The hardest part of the job is being on call 24/7 never a day off. The most enjoyable is doing my job and fixing something back to normal again.

From a Contract Employee's perspective.
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee), Houston, TXAugust 9, 2012
Pros: spectra is a good company
Cons: the department lacks leadership, direction, communication, respect, and teamwork. not all spectra benefits apply to contract employees.
Depending on the department that you are working in, it can be a good experience, but for me, the work environment is great but training sucks. No one wants to train you, let alone train you the right way. Everyone has his or her own way of doing things unbeknownst to anyone else. They do not work as a team, and everyone is territorial of his or her – more... work. Limited information is given, and is only on a need to know basis. Their ideal of training you is "let me show you this" and then they walk away. There are no set standards for the department, and if someone leaves, it is unknown as to what the person was doing at that desk, or the status of his or her work. When asked “why do you do that’ the answer is “I just know.” When asked why we do this process or the purpose of this process “no one can answer the question.” When there is a problem, the individuals that have been here the longest will not say anything, leaving the person that has been here the shortest amount of time to take the fall. No one is held accountable for his or her actions, problems are not solved, a Band-Aid is just placed on it until the next time. Spectra is a good company, however this department lacks leadership, direction, communication, respect, and teamwork. – less
