    I have been working at Sparta Systems (less than a year)

    Pros

    Modern workplace, wonderful culture, embraces technology and change, growing and expanding at a good and maintainable pace. Company brings in food every Friday (changing to once a month). People are actually HAPPY to be here. Flexible hours, very casual dress. Self motivated.

    Cons

    Tight working conditions because the company is growing so quickly.
    Having the two different products is a little confusing.
    Some employees take the "casual attire" a little too far (I really don't want to see the underwear of a co-worker), but there are only a few that take it to the extreme.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing!

    I have been working at Sparta Systems full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very collaborative & innovative environment
    Highly intelligent and motivated employees
    Strong corporate strategy and vision
    Training and career growth opportunities
    Friday company lunches. Good amount of employee events throughout the year.
    When you start at Sparta you are enrolled in classroom training for several weeks

    Cons

    Working from home is restricted to an infrequent basis
    If you are a habitual under performer you won't last here. Under performers don't get continually shuffled around as they would at other companies(pro if you are a decent worker)

    I have been working at Sparta Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Team spirit is strong, and almost everyone is approachable and willing to help you. People are hard working but are also fun to work with. Projects are interesting, with great opportunities to learn new technology and increase your knowledge.

    Cons

    Company is growing very quickly, so decisions/direction sometimes seem to change frequently. You need to be open to change and be very adaptable to do well in this environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None for now. Generally happy with the direction Management is going.

    Pros

    Lots of responsibilities. Good teamwork.
    Great work culture in Product Development / QA organization.
    Good training to folks joining. Agile methodologies.
    Fast growing company almost doubling in size in last 2-3 years and continue to expand. Lots of opportunities.
    Company has a good policy for folks to move been departments which is better than anywhere else I have worked.

    Cons

    Due to flat organization promotions are less.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As company expands consider expanding middle management layer to help with balanced growth and proper oversight.

    I have been working at Sparta Systems full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Since the day I walked in, they've given me everything I needed to succeed and then some. They actively answer my questions, they trained me from the ground up and paced the training to my specific needs. There is a trust placed in the employee to perform tasks assigned to them on their own time, and it's not in a manner that feels impossible. Great place to work. Very fulfilling environment.

    Cons

    I think the one drawback is the slight disconnect between management and lower level employees. They are very personable and easily approached, and will gladly help when they can, but this seems to be so much that they occasionally take a while to respond. This is due largely to the fast growth of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice from me just yet.

    I have been working at Sparta Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have been with the company for over two years. The current organizational structure give you the ability to take the initiative with your own career and establish your own identity and career path. Cross-functional opportunities are there for people willing to take action. Product plan is exciting with new product offerings in addition to TrackWise.

    Cons

    Challenging work environment may at times be stressful. Being a high growth company this is expected with tighter deadlines on many projects. Expected to be available at all times to assist with critical issues/projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue with the development of career paths. Enable employees to take ownership of their own career.

    I have been working at Sparta Systems

    Pros

    If you're not afraid to work the extra hour, plenty of opportunity for advancement. If necessary, positions are created to reward employees who show promise. Tons of projects to get involved in and lots of opportunity to grow in knowledge. Good compensation package.

    Cons

    Not a company to hold your hand. Everything moves fast and changes fast. Company can be very quick to release anyone they consider dead weight. Very high pressure at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Inter department relations can be fractious. Some work needs to be done to get the company on the same page.
