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
