    I have been working at Strata Decision Technology full-time (More than a year)


    Fast moving, fast growing company. The company has been around a little while, but has most recently really picked up. They've just expanded the office, new hires come in every month, new educational initiatives are always being added. This is a pretty solid environment all around. This place is great for people who enjoy being able to come in and expand their role, as you will seldom be told no on a new initiative or idea.

    They've also recently added a membership to linkedin learning for all new hires, and expanded training opportunities internally.

    CEO fist bumps me in the hallway. Can't complain.


    Because it is so fast moving (and more recently so in the past couple years) it can be tough to get a hold of information. As a new hire, especially if you aren't coming from healthcare, it can be a steep hill to learn the industry and learn the huge product the company makes-StrataJazz. Many people who work here live and breath healthcare, and have also been here a while, so they know the product, they know the lingo, and they may not slow down for you to absorb it all. If you're not comfortable with a slightly more unstructured and fast paced environment, this may not be the culture for you.

    There's also (as probably anywhere) a huge cultural divide between the two floors. Developers and designers, and product people in general tend to keep to their group, while consultants and sales and support (located downstairs) tend to keep to their group and also have a much higher turnover.
