    I worked at Stratos Product Development

    Pros

    They are a design firm that designs medical and commercial products. They have a great group of engineers that care about designing the product the correct way. They provide a full team including project managers to a project.

    Cons

    When they have work to do it is a great place to work, when they don't have work they trim employees. It is a very cyclical type business, super busy for a few months then there is nothing to do, very much at the mercy of the companies that hire them.

    Advice to Management

    Try not to lead the employees and contractors on in respect to the upcoming work load, be open with your communication.

    Thank you for your feedback. We were aware you wanted to transition from a contractor to full time employee. We're sorry the timing wasn't right.

    I worked at Stratos Product Development full-time

    Pros

    Stratos had a very strong engineering and design team. You always had someone to learn from or someone to consult with. The project variety kept it challenging. Overall, an excellent place to work and grow.

    Cons

    Downtown commute was getting rougher. The workload could be hard to predict in the consulting business.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for a great run.

      I worked at Stratos Product Development

      Pros

      Stratos was a great place to work for many of us for many years. The work of developing products for our clients and helping them be successful came first, and the management took care to make an environment where good engineers and designers felt respected and at home.

      Cons

      Financial stability was never strong, and Stratos closed at the end of April 2017, unfortunately.

      Advice to Management

      Thanks for creating a great environment and building an experienced, talented team that worked well together. We wish it could have gone on.
