More opportunity for growth

Engineer (Current Employee)
Centreville, VA

ProsSparta is very selective with its employees so you are surrounded by a wealth of knowledge. There are opportunities for certain employees to earn big time bonuses during review season. Some of the managers are in tune w/ what makes employees happy and productive, others above them could care less.

ConsNot a lot of opportunity for growth and since they are very selective in their hiring process there isn't a lot of training available.They just expect their employees to know everything. Even with the little time off they give new employees, they expect you to work all the time, even during holidays and inclement weather. Also they are very good at rewarding the top performers but will not reward those just below them.

Advice to Senior ManagementPush more training for employees. More time off (3 weeks including holidays and sick days is tiny). Allow for more upward mobility and cross training.
