Spartan Race company review

The employees are a great group of people Tough to say a negative word about any of them The office environment is a bit non traditional but once you get used to it it s a largely enjoyable atmosphere The industry is exciting and still developing and it is a great feeling to know that the work you do has a tremendous impact on the growing community and on the sport as a whole
