          Pros

          Nice to see them making the necessary changes to help the company grow and retain their employees. Everyone around here is so friendly and always seems to have a smile on their face. Management seems to be open to new ideas which is a nice change of pace.

          Cons

          401K plan could be better

          Very happy that the changes we have made are working for the better and being noticed. We do recognize that the 401K plan could be better and are currently in the process of exploring options to help with that.

          I worked at SPARGO full-time for more than 6 years

          Pros

          The health plan is very decent.

          Cons

          Cliquish, mean girlsesque atmosphere. Pay is not acceptable for the amount of work done. Mangement do not push for a suitable work/life balance.. Management doesn't do the work to ensure there are happy worker bees.

          Advice to Management

          Management has to recognize that their employment door is revolving. Organization needs to do more to keep employees. Management needs to think outside of the box with regards to benefits if they refuse to pay suitable wages. Stings when day after a letter to all staff stating there will be no raises for the year the CEO/president shows up to work in a brand new luxury vehicle. HR department is a sham.

          I worked at SPARGO full-time for more than a year

          Pros

          Free parking. Casual work environment.

          Cons

          Literally zero training and leadership. I asked for training on a certain software at one point and was told to find videos on YouTube...although SPARGO has a firewall that doesn't allow employees to access YouTube. Had to pretty much beg for training after two months of nothing from my supervisor but negative feedback, but at that point it was too late for me. Supervisors are not trained well at management and...
