    I worked at Solta Medical full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good management team overall, CEO (Steve) was good and company was headed towards a positive future.

    Cons

    Board of Directors pressed for new customer sales growth over maintenance of existing base, volume over quality, then ejected with a near-sighted cash out to Valeant.

    Advice to Management

    Mgmt team left the organization. New Mgmt Team: Address existing customer base quickly before all go to more nimble competition.
