    I have been working at Stratus Investments full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Stratus manages a portfolio of startup companies. As such, the company is highly entrepreneurial and fast-paced. New business opportunities are constantly being evaluated and when such businesses are added to the portfolio, it creates new opportunities for employees.

    Cons

    Stratus may not be the appropriate environment for highly structure-oriented people.

    I worked at Stratus Investments full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They offer great parking and 9 to five hours due to the low work ethic in general for people of florida. You can have a life outside of this place - i highly suggest you do that!

    Cons

    Within the last two years the company has gone from the aforementioned to a company which still making it but at the expense of its employees- low morale, lack of support and mental distress. The core values appear to have been pushed to the waste side and a focus has been made to more of a personal gain for the CEO and his name.Their is a lack of support no understanding what so ever how to run a CPG business, fairness and recognition for it's employees and finally the ability to be able to conduct the work you were hired to do are just a few areas which have pushed the morale to all time low.

    Executive support is limited and the mentality of "Just get it done so he's off my back" is pushed off to the employees doing the work. There is a strong opinion among employees that the executive provide limited information to the CEO and most of the time issues and problems that arise only come about at the last minute of a deadline when they could have been resolved long before with plenty of time. This has resulted in finger pointing and infighting among employees rather then a complete product and proper resolution.

    Advice to Management

    Show a genuine attitude towards professional and employee growth. Try bringing in a few new employees with salaries that total 250k and can get the job done rather then hiring ONE new executive making 500k, makes unrealistic goals, no understanding of the CPG business model and improper decisions. When you first meet a candidate and hire them make a note of their job skills and what you liked about them. Then when you assign a project to them look over that list, refresh you memory as to why you hired them and let them create or do what you want done. Do impromptu CEO conversations in their cubical. Show, not talk about how you care about your employees, what they think and their ideas. Ensure that there will not be backlash for negative comments or ideas that go against what the company is currently doing. Stop company waste, the ridiculous expenses the company reimburses for, the waste of time on last minute changes which could have been done long ago, the waste of positions where people are truly only working 4 hours a day. Go back to the old fashion values hard work, honesty,integrity, faith in your employees
