    I worked at STARA Technologies (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Close group of people who work well together. Excellent product that exceeds expectations.

    Cons

    Lack of managements ability to understand and address a changing business atmosphere. Lack of respect for employees by laying off with no notice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use your employees abilities and ideas to help you create new products. Layoffs may be unavoidable but give enough notice so that they may make arraignments to take home their gear and say goodbye before you give them the "perp walk" out with a box in their hands.

    I worked at STARA Technologies full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The salaries are competitive and the dress code is casual.

    Cons

    Company has great potential, but that potential is ruined by the unbelievably, untalented employees that happen to either be related to the owner or are very good friends with him. There are employees who literally wear stripper heels and hot pants to work. I actually looked in their offices to see if a stripper pole was in place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell the company to someone who knows how to run a successful business. Management is run by either engineers with limited social skills and minimal marketing talent or by family relatives and friends who have no background in running a defense contracting business.
