      Work Hard, Play Hard

      Pros

      I have only good things to say about my time with Sparks. Expectations are communicated clearly from the start in regard to KPIs and responsibilities. Communication from the top is clear and consistent, and the company does what they can to engage all of their employees. Resources are abundant, and help is always available- from management, training (and really anyone you ask.) Sparks will do whatever you need to ensure that you are successful here. It is staffing— so expect high volume, sometimes stressful days-- but you can also expect to play hard at the end of each quarter as well.

      Cons

      Repetitive work, benefits could be better but not bad
