    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.
