Pros

Friendly people and visibility for working for a small company. Thermage has roughly 200 people. Unfortunately a majority of engineering talent has departed from the company since the aquistion of reliant technologies by thermage. Reliant engineers were obviously more talented, but were treated as second class citizens after the acquistion.

Cons

Management spends too much time in meeting as opposed to getting real work done. Management also shows little respect to talented employees. As a result much of the real talent has departed from the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There is too much emphasis on the marketing side, and too little on the engineering side. Engineers often have great ideas for future products, that are often shot down by marketing. Marketing has a very limited understanding of the technology that keeps the company afloat. Marketing also often requests feautures to existing products that not only waste engineers time, but also has little to no impact on the market.

    Pros

    Gold standard products
    Acquired product lines are also gold standard
    Always great to work for the company with the best products since they pretty much sell themselves

    Cons

    Consistently short staffed and over worked employees across the company
    Flat organization so no opportunities for advancement
    All issues are common for this type of work environment so nothing unexpected

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more employees across the company

    I have been working at Solta Medical

    Pros

    The company is innovative and looking for ways to improve the product. Very strong on biomedical research. There is a strong background in controlling and improving non-invasive aesthetic treatment. It is, for the most part, a very friendly company to work for.

    Cons

    Not much recognition given to individuals outside the old boy network: portions of the company are very wary of working with others outside their group. Little chance for promotion outside of sales and marketing. Constant worry about layoffs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize personnel assets. Praise someone outside of sales and marketing for jobs well done.
