Pros

The people are great. They are some of the best people to work with. Everyone is willing to help with anything at work or home if needed. Family atmosphere.

Cons

Pay is not what I expected. Chance of advancement seems poor at the present time. Not being challenged enough.

Advice to Management

Keep the employees in mind as an investment. Make sure they advance and feel good about where they work. Don't think of company advancement without them.

    Pros

    No-nonsense, profit-centered organization. Focus is always on the bottom line and making investors happy. You know exactly what is expected of you, and there isn't much tolerance for failure.

    Cons

    Often, there is a gloomy mood that hovers over the workplace, due to the serious nature of Spartan's employees. It can make work less than enjoyable.

    Advice to Management

    Lighten up a little. Create a more modern, creative work environment, not one where everyone is expected to conform.

  2. Great people, dysfunctional cross-team management.
