    Pros

    People, Products, Culture, Direct Management. I liked working with Marketing and Sales. We had a great thing going until the company was bought by Valeant.

    Cons

    Exec Mgmt Decisions, could have been more forthcoming as we were being purchased.

    Advice to Management

    Not always "transparent" leadership.

    Pros

    Several great products, good people. Tried hard to be a good company with a proactive & quality focused culture. Appreciated it's employees.

    Cons

    Poor leadership at the top level. Completely failed to develop a sustainable business model. Made several bad acquisitions and never retrenched to fix the problems it bought.

    Advice to Management

    Decide what you want your next company to be in the future state, develop a realistic & milestone focused model on how to get there (just like any other project plan). Commit the resources needed, and ensure your business model supports the milestones,

    Pros

    The best reason to work at Solta is the people. I never ran into any one who was difficult to work with. The populace seemed to be able to communicate requests and expectations in a polite and professional manner. Management has high expectations but they are very reasonable and respectful of an employees time.

    Cons

    Top level company strategies proved ineffective and were not corrected quickly enough. What ultimately ended up as a very poor acquisition left the company with limited options but to be acquired itself. The company seems rudderless now after the buyout and all the nice people I spoke of in the "Pro" section are slowly disappearing. A company that had multiple amazing products and huge potential is slowly dying.

    Advice to Management

    Strong leadership and presence is vital in uncertain times. You either have to step up or risk watching every one drift away.

    The people were very cross-functional, smart, energetic, dedicated and approachable. I would work with many of the people again. We had beautiful offices, an on-site clinic and a clean work environment.

    Cons

    Long hours, small raises, low bonus payout.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent and provide more avenues for feedback.
