    I worked at Sparta Systems full-time

    Pros

    - Great place to start a career
    - Work from home flexibility
    - Development managers can be great motivators

    Cons

    - Most Senior-Level developers left over the past year or two
    - Can be a lot of management involved in development lifecycle
    - Far too much time spent in agile planning/estimation meetings
    - Recognizing and addressing technical debt is met by much resistance
    - Product strategy/priorities change every couple of days to couple of weeks
    - Offshoring created a significant amount of technical debt; and continues to do so
    - Accounting regularly pays invoices from a few days to a month late
    - Very restrictive IP Contract
    - Long support cycles

    Advice to Management

    Look at the product you have, recognize how it got to it's current state, and see how your current planning is either positively or negatively affecting it. Talk to anyone in RnD that works with it if you need clarification.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sparta Systems (New Brunswick, NJ (US)) in February-2017.

    Interview

    Signed up through on-campus recruitment. They emailed me very quickly and we set up a meeting for a phone screen. Very standard questions about Java/SQL. The interviewer was very friendly and straightforward.
