Potential to be GREAT, just BAD upper management!
What I like
5 weeks PTO
What I dislike
No potential growth from within the company. The employees that are the backbone of the company are overlooked.
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.
Spectrum has great employees that work there.
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.
Depends on the level of urgency. Usual teamwork only occurs when its more than likely that the office is perceived in a negative way.
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.
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)
Freedom to work independently
You have the ability to work independently. Use to be able to work from home occasionally, but they quickly ended.
Attitude towards older colleagues
The attitude towards older colleagues is exceptional.
Office / Work Environment
The work environment is pretty decent. Some employees are down to earth.
Its pretty safe. Occasional break in's and robberies have occurred.
Overall compensation for your work
High demand in work. Low rate in pay. Exceptionally low. *Especially in their market*
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.
Work will always be challenging when the work is not evenly distributed, and lack of resources within a company.
