    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.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Sparta Systems full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Sparta is a great place to work if you're a motivated, independent person that likes to be part of the company's success. Depending on the department some work is in-house, remote or at a client site, but regardless you always feel part of the team and that your contribution makes a difference.

    Cons

    With global and remote employees you don't often get the face to face interaction more than a few times a year, but all hands meetings do bring the teams together for team bonding
