    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'.

    I have been working at STAAR Surgical full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is only one good thing about staar. The other workers.

    Cons

    Not getting help from a supervisor or manager when needed. doing the job of two or three people. Out of dated systems and procedures. Some employees are "untouchable" no matter what problems they cause. While the rest get the blame.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide opportunities to move up within the company. Get help for the "lower" departments. They need more staff.
