    I worked at SPARTA full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Even though it Sparta grew into a large business it maintained the "feel" of a small business. The people were very talented in their disciplines.

    Cons

    Sometimes the small business operations were not always favorable for an employee. Because there was not a functional organization when the program you were working came to an end it was employee's responsibility to find his next assignment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider implementing a functional organization to assist employees in transitioning to their next job.
