Supplier Quality Engineer (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – October 5, 2017
Individuals are able to contribute making improvements. Procedures and work instructions, statistical analysis and trending, documentation inputs and standardized / easily retrievable outputs all offer opportunity for improvement.
Sr. R&D Engineer (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – August 17, 2017
I was able to expand my technical and managerial knowledge in this position and worked to launch inventive products, However, management is based on underground politics and advancement was minimal. I had 5 supervisors in as many years.
QA Technician (Temp) (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – May 9, 2017
Rules and SoP's were constantly changing and were not thought out thoroughly as on many occasions in my short time there, we would come across daily events that were not governed by any SoP, or were improperly handled by the SoP. Management struggled to properly rectify these issues. Work was also managed inproperly such that some weeks there would be an excess of work than could be performed in the given time, while other weeks work would drop off so sharply that people would be let go, and new people hired a few weeks later when work cropped up again.
Great lunch room/cafeteria
Sometimes required weekends. Management was a mess. Poor job security.
Human Resources Director (Former Employee) – Fremont, CA – April 29, 2016
I managed the HR functions for about 180 employees across 40 states. I was the only HR for the company and handled everything from recruiting, onboarding, benefits administration, employee relations, performance management, coaching and training to terminations. I was retained by Spectranetics as a key member to assist after the acquisition of AngioScore.
Assembler (Current Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – November 29, 2015
Management is terrible. They would let anyone get away with murder if they liked you.The workers have no respect for their managers and senior leaders. The hardest part of my job is the people, they are always up in your case about everything.
excellent benefits and annual bonuses and raises
The people there are terrible at their job snd dont listen to their managers.
My time at Spectranetics was very informative and I learned a lot about the industry.Their products are amazing and have definitely changed the face of vascular medicine. Their salaries are competitive and much better than anywhere else in CO Springs and even Denver. Unfortunately it has a poor work/life balance and you are viewed poorly if you only work 40hrs per week. They reward those that bend and comply with the company culture rather than those who might have a difference of opinion. Upper management has their own agenda and is totally disconnected with their "worker bees"...elitist to the max. The head of my department was a joke and had no business being in that role. If you don't mind working 50 - 60hr weeks, keeping your head down and mouth shut, this is the place for you!
Great place for learning the basics of the industry.
They reward brown-nosers, not hard work and competence.
Facility& Calibration Coordinator (Current Employee) – Fremont, CA – April 6, 2015
Since management has changed from Angioscore to Spectranetics.work load has been doubled and salaries are compared to the rates in Colorado and that caused quiet of disappointment among employees. personally i would like to commute less and be closer to my home. I commute about 100 miles round trip and would rather to work either close to home or commute the opposite direction of the morning traffic.
Not any fun, just a grind, not about what you do it is who about their favorites
Senior Engineer (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – February 13, 2015
Poor upper management. They are disconnected from reality. They don't know what their employees are doing good. They have shared values but only recognize their favorites not based on many good talented employees. If things need to change start with the getting rid of the VP of operations. It was better before he arrived. Many talented Managers are now gone and nobody feel safe anymore. They say they want the best talent in the planet, but all they do is through it in your face. It don't matter, it is all about holding perceptions not true talent with skills and a great personality. It just a grind. Don't be fooled by positive feedback or they are the most trusted company. Beward it has changed in the last year. Sad to see it happen.
good people on the production floor.
They are about perception not talent. Look good on the surface, but when digging in has major upper management problems. Poor bonus plan.
Great products, horrible management. Company has great initiatives to develop employees but don't follow through. Excessive work demands, little appreciation for work. Success of department was purely a result of dedicated employees with good character to perform their job.
Sales Analyst II (Current Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – November 19, 2014
Spectranetics is a great company with massive growth potential. The CEO has a vision for the company that will take it very far. The department I worked in was completely mismanaged and misspent. Typical days ran 12+ hours and the director was completely unable to outline specific roles for the team. Every day was a new fire drill which ultimately created massive backlogs of normal routine work.
