    Was a nice place to work - recently acquired and no longer exists

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

    ConsPoor 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 Senior ManagementDecide 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,

    Great People, Poor Decisions

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe 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.

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more transparent and provide more avenues for feedback.
