Innovative and dedicated team, overburdened by unreasonable expectations from senior leadership.
Quality Inspector (Current Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – September 23, 2017
SPNC produces amazing products that help improve and save patients’ lives, however, a lack of head count to many crucial areas makes for a hectic and confusing work environment. Senior leaderships lean manufacturing practices often cripple day-to-day operations due to employees being overburdened with too many responsibilities, while dealing with complex problems. Company often takes business risks that go against supposed quality culture, and leadership lacks patience to solve problems the right way. The company was recently bought out by Phillips, and I am hopeful capital will be used to improve the quality system and move to newer more efficient technology to improve traceability, and cut down on non-value-added labor. Overall SPNC is a good company to work for, the benefits are excellent and Phillips (soon to be implemented) benefits package is just as good if not better. Management does an excellent job of recognizing employees for performance, and employees are generally treated with respect. With a little extra help for sustaining departments, SPNC could improve greatly.
Great benefits, deidicated operations, quality, and engineering teams
Hectic work environment, increase in head count a major need.
