Pros

Generous profit sharing plan. Management in some offices is very good. Recently acquired by an employee owned company, which bodes well for SPARTAns.

Cons

If your position is eliminated from your contract, good luck staying on with the company. They have not been very successful in winning new business lately. Since being acquired, benefits have been cut deeply.

Advice to Management

Hire me to help with proposal efforts, in a lead role. Don't let other companies get away with unfair business practices. Expand into non-defense fields. Systems Engineering can be applied to many types of industries and organizations.
