    I have been working at Strata Decision Technology full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Fast moving, fast growing company. The company has been around a little while, but has most recently really picked up. They've just expanded the office, new hires come in every month, new educational initiatives are always being added. This is a pretty solid environment all around. This place is great for people who enjoy being able to come in and expand their role, as you will seldom be told no on a new initiative or...

    Cons

    Because it is so fast moving (and more recently so in the past couple years) it can be tough to get a hold of information. As a new hire, especially if you aren't coming from healthcare, it can be a steep hill to learn the industry and learn the huge product the company makes-StrataJazz. Many people who work here live and breath healthcare, and have also been here a while, so they know the product, they know the lingo,...

    I worked at Strata Decision Technology full-time

    Pros

    The organization had a fantastic culture and encouraged ideas which is key when a place is growing.

    Cons

    Lots of growing pains but that is to be expected at any organization that is growing. I do believe leadership did their best to handle it in a way that made employees feel good about the company and work.

    Pros

    Company is having great success and growing very quickly. Great people who care a lot about the work they are doing. Open culture that asks for feedback and always doing nice things for the employees. Lots of training available for every person who works here. Whole company spent an entire day in January brainstorming and planning community service ideas for the upcoming year, based on the causes people care about....

    Cons

    Lots of hiring right now but some resource constraints felt because of growth. Light on holidays (9) but have added one the past 2 years to address the issue. Need to give more paternity leave.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the work you are doing. The improvements being made are real and felt by the employees. Thank you.

    I have been working at Strata Decision Technology full-time

    Pros

    Usual - 401k, medical, dental etc

    Cons

    I usually don’t write reviews, but I am so shocked and angry for my colleague I feel compelled to do so. Our manager announced my senior colleague’s final day. Our manager proceeded to tell the team why he was leaving (because of something personal) and he corrected her and said that is not the reason why. The announcement was incredibly awkward and it was obvious to everyone that there is something going on. I am so...

    Advice to Management

    And where is the CEO and HR during all this?! The CEO is more concerned about summits and retreats that he doesn’t realize what’s happening under his nose. He needs to pay attention, clean house of upper management and promote people who actually do work.

    I worked at Strata Decision Technology full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Smart People on a lot of the teams, some very dedicated to delivering for the client.

    Cons

    Some solutions have cleaner products than others. The company culture is good and has gotten a lot better than it was a few years ago, but I think there are a lot of people who would scrap the ‘fun team event during office hours’ type activities in favor of higher pay.

    Advice to Management

    It’s great that you want to offer consulting service implementations to replace Deloitte, Accenture, etc. implementations your clients currently use, but remember that once a team member can operate at that level, what’s to stop them from jumping ship to one of those companies for a significant raise? If you’re expecting employees to operate that level of analysis after/during your own software implementation, comp needs...

    Pros

    Meaningful and challenging work with tons of opportunities regardless of age Issues are handled in a thoughtful and transparent manner Work with the most prestigious systems in healthcare - Kaiser, Cleveland Clinic, Intermountain, Northwestern. You name it, they work with them. Tries really hard to keep employee engagement high and hold managers accountable for it Stability of a multi-billion dollar firm but the feel...

    Cons

    As with any rapidly growing company, there are growing pains and some disgruntled employees that are not on board and express this in a passive aggressive manner - glassdoor,etc. A lot of change! If you can't handle it, not the place for you. Not your typical 9-5 job, not the place for you if that's what you are looking for.

    Advice to Management

    Watch out for the overhead and unproductive roles as the company grows. Not every glassdoor review needs action - some of the feedback is absolutely ridiculous.

    Pros

    Overall, people care about their jobs. They care about the company. People are open to collaboration and a fast pace of change.

    Cons

    It's not perfect, just like any other company. There are some people who underperform but get to stay in their roles, which is annoying at best.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone needs to be held accountable to the same minimum set of expectations.

    Pros

    There are a handful of smart people who want to improve things and create a better environment, if you are at the company seek them out and your time will be much better.

    Cons

    The environment at Strata is toxic. Company events are drunken messes, the company encourages over indulgence which leads to a lot of inappropriate conduct, sometimes involving clients. Sexual harassment runs rampant, ranging from very inappropriate comments and solicitations to grabbing and groping. The most disturbing part is upper management and HR side with the harasser and sweep everything under the rug. Most of...

    Advice to Management

    The parent company needs to overhaul the entire upper level management, from C-level employees to directors. It's only a matter of time before a lawsuit or news article about conduct at the company severely damages the company.
