    I have been working at Strata Decision Technology full-time


    Smart, fun people who love doing work that makes a difference. Growing quickly and lots of opportunities. Culture is amazing and Strata invests in their employees. Company is principled and cares about their people's happiness.


    Limited holidays (I think only 8) and there is a lot of change (but probably normal for a company that is growing quickly).

    Advice to Management

    Keep communicating with and focusing on employees. Great work!

    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Strata Decision Technology (Chicago, IL) in July 2016.


    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.
