Old was better than new
Project Manager (Current Employee), Rosslyn, VAOctober 9, 2013
Pros: some of our executive leadership is embedded in parsons
Cons: restructured profit sharing, bonuses distributed to entire parsons vice within our organization (egalitarian profit sharing)
Old Sparta had a corporate culture that rewarded performance. From my perspective in the trenches, it seems that new Sparta has lost its appeal due to being sucked into the Parsons borg. Less vacation time, less attention to the needs of the workers (billable employees) and a new 1-888 hotline for all of your HR needs. I used to be able to call the one person when I had a problem and it was immediately resolved. Sparta is the cash cow for Parsons. I'm sure I'm not the only one waiting to see what happens when the milk dries up.

Corporate was very good about keeping all employees informed.
Configuration Analyst (Former Employee), Bellevue, NESeptember 28, 2012
Pros: very employee oriented, extremely good benefits
Cons: has been sold twice and is no longer the company i worked for
Being a Department of Defense contractor, my job location was in the customer's facility., but the SPARTA that I knew and loved before it was sold was emplolyee-owned and run and the best kind of company in the world to be a part of. When it was sold to Cobham, it began to degenerate. It has once again been sold, so I'm not sure what it is like to work there new.

Trying to Decide What to Do Next
Software Engineer (Current Employee), Huntsville, ALSeptember 5, 2011
SPARTA grew up as an employee-owned company with many strengths. Since the buyout by Cobham, it has not really been able to define a direction for itself. Divisions at SPARTA tends to be compartmentalized with independent management with a very flat management structure. It's hard to get a comprehensive view of what the company is doing. The flat structure makes advancement a challenge, but employees generally take pride in challenging assignments. SPARTA does some excellent technical work that it's a pleasure to be part of. Compensation in the past relied heavily on stock options, which has never really been replaced. It's a casual culture with a pretty good work life balance; they like to be flexible.
