    Constant state of change

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

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

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

    you will be overworked and forgotten about.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
