    Pros

    Staar is a great company. They are a leader in their product field worldwide. They are profitable and their business is increasing. The people are good to work with. I have not had any bad experiences with anyone in the time that I have been here.

    Cons

    There is no regular remote option. You can work remote for part of a day to the whole day occasionally, however working multiple days a week remotely on a regular basis is not an option.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at STAAR Surgical full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lead/supervisor pretty much ran a clown show anything went which was a pros for slackers.

    Cons

    No regulation, favoritism, gossip by the lead/supervisor. Most stuff was ran non conforming within that department and kept it that way. Poor for especially been hit by FDA with a warning letter.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to actually step foot into that lab and see what's really going on and who and what is really the problem.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at STAAR Surgical full-time

    Pros

    Established market leader in lens implants with decent products.

    Cons

    Too much reliance on consultants with not so strong medical device exposure. Multiple standards in interpreting FDA regulations and validations (again due to the lack of experience) even at management level! No bonus for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Don't expect the consultants to run your business. Hire, empower and retain internal dedicated experienced resources.
