spectrum association management experience report

Potential to be GREAT, just BAD upper management!

2.65

Company Culture

Spectrum has great employees that work there.

Support from management

You will only receive support if, again, the level of urgency is high. Everyone is overworked and is fending for themselves. (Except "some" of the ones that have personal relationships with upper management outside of work)

Teamwork

Depends on the level of urgency. Usual teamwork only occurs when its more than likely that the office is perceived in a negative way.

Freedom to work independently

You have the ability to work independently. Use to be able to work from home occasionally, but they quickly ended.

Internal Communication

Upper management (Upper level manager's & Division President) will constantly set unrealistic goals and deadlines with little to no source of resources. Will not help out/ or give guidance to help you meet expectations.

Attitude towards older colleagues

The attitude towards older colleagues is exceptional.

Career Development

Hard to advance or be promoted internally. Very selective on revealing new job positions with internal staff. Usually will search for new employees externally. Lastly, a promotion is not a promotion, if your hourly/salary pay "DOES NOT" increase.

Overall compensation for your work

High demand in work. Low rate in pay. Exceptionally low. *Especially in their market*

Office / Work Environment

The work environment is pretty decent. Some employees are down to earth.

Work-Life Balance

The propaganda they will sell you on is "5 weeks PTO." As enticing as it seems, you will go on vacay, time off, etc.. and will return with a large work load.

Handicapped Accessibility

Its pretty safe. Occasional break in's and robberies have occurred.

Challenging Work

Work will always be challenging when the work is not evenly distributed, and lack of resources within a company.

Suggestions for improvement

  • New CEO with actual experience in such, new upper management at the Houston Division with experience. Needs more structure with departments and procedures.

What I like about the company

5 weeks PTO

What I dislike about the company

No potential growth from within the company. The employees that are the backbone of the company are overlooked.
