    I have been working at STAAR Surgical full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Small company, easy access to upper management. Good technology but limited to a few products.

    Cons

    Salaries on the low side, processes in place like it's a multi-billion dollar company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Facilitate communication and collaboration in global setting and invest in good infrastructure systems (Quality control system). Hire more 'Indians and fewer chiefs'.
