    Interesting projects
    Cool products
    Flexibility
    Opportunity to learn & be involved in as much as you want

    Some higher management is not qualified to be in their positions which leads to dysfunction when trying to complete projects across teams/functions. Understaffed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house and get good people in the right spots.
    Set quantifiable goals.
    Set clear responsibility.
    Be transparent.

    I worked at Spartan Motors

    Pros

    Great people to work with
    Decent compensation and benefits
    Products make a difference in the lives of the user
    Not too big, not too small

    Cons

    People no longer matter, bottom line is most important
    Customer quickly becoming secondary to stock price
    There has been a culture change over that past several years that has shifted the company from the values that it was founded upon

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Acknowledging that the bottom line is important, superior product and people will deliver far better results in the long run than a short-term, quarter to quarter management strategy. Strive to be excellent rather than average. Morale is in the tank right now and if something doesn't correct that, the company will be damaged as a result. Why would anyone give their best if they are concerned if the job they have will be there next week?

    I have been working at Spartan Motors

    Pros

    The people are great. They are some of the best people to work with. Everyone is willing to help with anything at work or home if needed. Family atmosphere.

    Cons

    Pay is not what I expected. Chance of advancement seems poor at the present time. Not being challenged enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the employees in mind as an investment. Make sure they advance and feel good about where they work. Don't think of company advancement without them.
