"Sparx is a progressive, experimental, positive, friendly and committed company."
Pros: 
  • The work on offer to graduates is varied and interesting and graduates felt that they were making a real difference in the world.
  • Managers are very accessible and graduates felt supported as a result of their feedback.
  • The office has been designed to be very environmentally friendly and the company will help employees to buy an electric car.
  • The hierarchy is very flat so graduates felt like they were working with peers rather than for managers.
Cons: 
  • There is a lot of responsibility and variety in work early on, which some graduates may struggle with initially.
  • Some feel that having a more structured graduate programme would be beneficial to their development.
  • The flat hierarchy means that it can be unclear how you progress on the career path.
  • The way work is assigned means there can be occasional periods of quiet while waiting for new tasks.
