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

    Pros

    - Collaborative atmosphere, including among staff who have been here for over a decade as well as new employees: everyone is willing to hear new ideas and partner to do what's best for our clients
    - Benefits and perks: strong focus from management in fostering a positive work environment (actions, not just words) through sports/activity clubs, Friday happy hour events, tools that enable employees to celebrate/congratulate each other and connect on common interests outside of work, maternity leave and accommodations for nursing mothers, etc.
    - Open communication across all levels of organization: executive team roll their sleeves up to get the job done; identifying and addressing areas of opportunities is just as encouraged as celebrating successes
    - Products and offerings: Valuable, proven and highly rated solutions for healthcare providers; business strategy is focused on making a difference in healthcare

    Cons

    This a con only for people who don't like to work hard: a small company means everyone has to be willing to get in the weeds and work with a sense of urgency and focus. There aren't layers of layers of analysts so everyone is involved, which enforces ownership and collaboration, but may not be a good fit for those who expect to delegate work outside their scope.

    Advice to Management

    Continue along the same path and maintain your focus on hiring people that fit this culture.

    The process has been roughly 3 weeks. I applied through a recruiter who got me a phone interview. Following the phone interview I was invited onsite for a 30 minute technical assessment and then an interview with a Senior Consultant as well as the Director. We talked about my background further and also the tech assessment. Following the interview they said they would call me back in a few days, and I am waiting to hear from them.
