    I have been working at Sparta Systems full-time

    Pros

    Interesting projects and new initiatives. Co-workers are hard working, smart, helpful and team oriented. Most will help you succeed instead of trying to bring you down. Upper management is willing to invest in company growth. Nice work environment with free Friday lunches and frequent celebrations.

    Cons

    Flat organization, so not many management opportunities. Depending on department, you will be expected to work with minimal direction. If you need frequent hand holding from your manager, this is not the company for you. Lots of work with aggressive deadlines.

    I have been working at Sparta Systems

    Pros

    Good people and a decemt product make for an exciting place to work. Nice facilities too and a pretty decent work environment.

    Cons

    A lot of turnover. Many departments work indepmdently of others making it feelmlike 10 different companies rolled into one.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Sparta Systems full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Possibilities of advancement, decent office, work with Top Pharmaceutical, BioTech and Food companies.

    Cons

    Management tends to throw you under the bus when there is an issue. Adversarial environment which makes it difficult to learn such a unique software package (Trackwise) as most associates are too busy to share their knowledge and help you with problems. If you don't learn the software fast enough or if you can't handle very high workload you are out the door (this happened to me). Expect to work long hours and... take a lot of flak from Sparta's clients.

    Advice to Management

    They need to do something to change the culture. The long time employees tend to see new employees as a threat to their roles and this is reflected in the high employee turnover rate here. The adversarial environment can be very unsettling and counter productive to employee growth. You better be thick skinned to work here!
