    I worked at Spartan Motors full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great insurance benefits, most departments shut down for the holiday break. Opportunity to take on different roles as they cut positions and switch people around. The severance package was good!

    Cons

    Which day will be your last one. Does your area fit into the manufacturing world. Are you on a marketing team or a leverage team, makes a big world of difference.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It seemed like a ship without a rudder.

    Pros

    In general there is a fair amount of flexibility at Spartan Motors.

    Cons

    When it come to getting your annual performance review management is more concerned about ensuring everybody is paid the same. Hence, ensuring that the more motivated employees do not receive much for a merit increase so they do not outpace the lower motivated employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick a direction and stick with it long enough to know if it is good or bad.
