Good Company, nice benefits,don't bother to work here
Shipping Clerk (Former Employee), Calabasas CaJanuary 27, 2015
Pros: good benifits
Cons: some management oblivious to abuse of o/t and slacking
Don't know how they stay in business, everything that goes out comes back for repair, Stores Mgnt Really Sucks! Employees watching Movies ant TV shows instead of working, some surfing inappropriate Web sites, Mgnt chooses to ignore this. A few bad apples (2) abuse Overtime, No Oversight by immediate Mgnt. Lots of preferable treatment to some Slackers, while others work hard!

It depends...
Manager (Current Employee), Eatontown, NJJanuary 7, 2015
Pros: positive learning environment
Cons: resistant to change and new ideas.
Spirent is a great company to learn leading edge wireless technologies. That said, there are too many levels of management bogging down decision making. Also, cost cutting measures have had a definite impact on product quality and company moral.

DO NOT WORK HERE
Engineer (Current Employee), FrederickMay 2, 2014
Cons: reward the slackers, no structure.
There is no room to move up, do not work here. The technology is ok but bad management and poor structuring. People sit on the internet and play games. no room for growth no matter how hard you work. pay is not that great compared to other companies.

was a great family oriented place when I started but has changed over the years I have been here
Lead Customer Service Technician (Current Employee), Eatontown, NJAugust 28, 2013
Pros: good benefits and no micro management
Cons: increase of work load with zero compensation
The Company use to be all about the quality of the product and the well being of the employees, and now I feel its about the bottom line and stock holders. Afraid that if things dont change it wont be around for long.

Avoid working here
Wireless field engineer (Former Employee), Frederick, mdApril 8, 2013
Cons: no room for advancement
I have to agree with the other review. There is no room for growth at this company. They reward slackers who rather watch videos on youtube or play games when they should be testing by giving them more hours to fix their screw ups. If you decide to work here and get the job it's also best to pretend to know what you are talking about than to actually ask questions. You will be treated like a hired slaved, so be forewarned. Wasted 2 years here, don't make the same mistake.

Worse place i have ever worked at
Systems Test Engineer (Former Employee), Rockville, MDJune 17, 2012
Cons: unprofessional environment
At Spirent i was not given any any opportunity for growth, and when i opted myself to join another team within Spirent, My manager made sure that i fail under all circumstances. At that time people in this group were being laid off since the product had failed but few hanged on to their jobs and did whatever they could against other coworkers to secure their job.
