    I worked at STARA Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Could have been a great company had the owners not hired Yosemite Sam to run their company into the ground and burn their cash. Great laid back culture.

    Cons

    Going out of business soon. Great talent and potential and office culture wasted by oppression of the competent, nepotism, and putting barely sentient fitness instructor types into management. Decisions made by cliques behind closed doors. Egos reign.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None of you (except maybe the relative newcomer) deserve to even be managenent. None of you know what you are doing as evidenced by exodus and layoff of real talent and current swan dive into concrete you are performing for your company. Learn how to lead. Go back to school. Start over.

    I worked at STARA Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    A COO that has led the Company to the edge of the cliff
    An owner that has surrounded himself with incompetence
    Unfortunately these are the Pro's

    Cons

    When all you are left with is a group of employees that would not get hired by any professional organization, you wonder why there is no business on the horizon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What seemed to be a strategic move to bring in an industry expert as their COO to expand their customer base and market has not only backfired, they are no longer a player in the market. It is also unfortunate that the COO is also on the payroll of a competitor with a mission to take STARA out of the market and eliminate a competitor. If I was to tell my management that I traveled the world, spent millions of dollars on marketing, taken my company out of the core market we were known for, and after 3 years showed nothing for it, I would be fired immediately. Congratulation owners, Stevie Wonder and Ray Charles would be proud of you
