    Pros

    Great culture, everyone is engaged. CEO has created a clear vision for everyone to move towards. Colleagues and management are enjoyable to work with.

    Cons

    Working with legacy and cloud products can be confusing with how to support them and present options to customers

    Advice to Management

    Continue being clear to employees on strategy as market conditions change. Rework and changing processes can damage employee morale.

    Pros

    Great opportunity to sharpen skills and work with great people. Have enjoyed working for the company and located in Hamilton NJ.

    Cons

    Can become monotonous at times working with clients on the same issues day in and day out. I know we are all busy during the day but tier 2 needs to work on how they speak to managed employees.

    Advice to Management

    Management for the most part is great with the exception of Tier 2 at times. I would advise that they speak to team members as they would like to be talked to.

    Pros

    This a great company, with great products that I'm fortunate to be a part of. The company creates products with real value. The people are great to work with and are always willing to help you succeed. The company encourages everyone to be innovative. As the company grows, so does the opportunities. The company allows for creative thinking and solutions.

    Cons

    There will always be imperfections. Yea, you get some smart-alecks but there are far more employees who are not. The pieces of the software puzzle are complex, but they are rewarding. There are some instances of micro management but not in a overwhelming way where you want to quit. Just enough to stifle true creativity and it only occurs in isolated areas of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Try to let more the creative juice flow through the talent you hire.

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

    Pros

    They have a great work life balance. I am allowed to WFH when I need to. The benefits are second to none. Close to home. A lot of smart people. Promote innovation. They help you to file patents.

    Cons

    There is some favoritism played by some managers. I feel like there is a lot of tension between the development and Architecture group. They need to work on project scope creep. We will be near the end of the release but not change the release dates.

    Advice to Management

    I think the Management team needs to stick up for the developers and stop micro managing us. I think the development team should be more involved with requirements gathering process. Then they will be able to gauge the amount of work that can be completed not just guess.

    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 Management

    Keep doing what you are doing!
