    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at SPARTA full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The work can be interesting and technologically challenging. Within a group there can be a wide variety of tasks and opportunities to learn new technologies. Management generally leaves you alone and lets you do your job.

    Cons

    Quickly becoming a large mindless bureaucracy with the purchase by Parsons. Very little opportunity for advancement. Benefits have continually deteriorated especially after the sale of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Low level management needs to do a better job of managing the projects.

  2. "A technology company that is not that interested in new technology"

    I have been working at SPARTA

    Pros

    There are some interesting projects and some of the things we build actually get used. Most of the people working there are dedicated and reasonably competent. Their business is very secure -- there aren't that many companies that have the clearances required to work in their area.

    Cons

    Much of the work is the same thing over and over. Not much new sometimes, just rehashing the same problems. They need to be better about embracing new technologies rather than just living on what has worked in the past. There is not much emphasis on growing the skills of the employees -- the first reaction when a new technology is needed is "who can we subcontract this to?"

    Advice to Management

    Review the compensation for technical staff. It's on the low side for people with these skills and clearances.
