Pros

Top notch coworkers Top management that certainly cares about its people Interesting work that has an impact Excellent benefits package Promotion opportunities are available, but it is a relatively small company

Cons

Standard 42.5 hour work week can make things difficult While it has a family atmosphere, they are very reluctant to purge non-productive employees

Advice to Management

The president is a great leader, but there are some of the directors that do not follow his example when dealing with employees. Would also like to see the company consider returning to a 40 hour work week as well as exploring the possibility of 9/80 work schedule to ease some of the commuting issues.

    Pros

    SPA is highly regarded in the submarine community. If you want to support the submarine community and are not a former submarine guy, working for SPA will give you some instant credibility. SPA tries to give everyone from top to bottom their own office so you can close the door and concentrate on work when you need to. The company focus is on doing interesting work for important decision makers. To accomplish that the company tries to take care of its employees. For the most part they succeed, but where they don't they are aware and constantly working to improve.

    Cons

    Over the last few years the focus on taking care of people has taken a back seat to "remaining profitable" in the face of sequestration.

    Advice to Management

    Reevaluate and decide if remaining profitable is still that last on your list of goals. I suspect it has moved up the ladder a couple of notches.
