    Pros

    Culture is great - people I work with truly care about one another. Increasing their training opportunities to grow skills. Lots of movement internally with chance to grow in different roles. Appreciation days, team retreats, social outings - lots of cool events for employees.

    Cons

    Some growing pains related to scale but a nice problem to have as lots of hiring and new customers coming on board every day.

    Keep making decisions with the employees in mind.

    Pros

    Strata has a great culture with a focus on having an open, collaborative work environment. There are a growing number of opportunities for professional advancement within the company with new initiatives put in place. Even as Strata is growing at the rate it is and teams are becoming larger, you still feel like you are making contributions on a daily basis that do not go unnoticed. Strata is continually developing new systems and procedures to make life easier.

    Cons

    The work-life balance can be tough sometimes as the client base grows, and there are definitely still growing pains as the company is piloting and implementing procedures.

    Pros

    This company is in a very niche domain with very few handful competitors but struggling to stay ahead of growing competition.

    Cons

    Most employees including developers struggle with understanding the product .Poor quality product is difficult to support and manage. Product has lots of bugs. It is hard to satisfy customers with so many software failures. High turnover of high-level, valuable staff. Continued significant talent drain. Newly promoted staff members are asked to write reviews. Many roles moving offshore for expense containment.

    Advice to Management

    Improve product core and quality so it won't have as many support issues,bugs and prevent company from going out of business.

    Pros

    Excellent work-life balance, good location.

    Cons

    3% 401(k) matching? (50% up to 6%, so effectively it's 3%). With a 5 year vesting period? Really? Props to using Vanguard, but a better matching would encourage more employees to save for retirement!
