      Pros

      Good pay. Nice building.

      Cons

      Product never changes. Currently too concerned with impressing the board and not improving a deteriorating culture.

      I worked at Stratus Technologies

      Pros

      Good benefits, good people, good location. Great place to work if in your final years of work and don’t mind tired old products.

      Cons

      Products and technology are tired and constantly losing market share. No innovation. Poor management who like to micro manage, but not able to give a clear vision and motivate employees. Direction changes daily, sales team is extremely poor at driving sales. They remind me of people that were under performers at other companies but good enough for Stratus. If it wasn’t for the employees the place would be miserable

      Advice to Management

      Hire talented qualified management, innovate, give clear direction and vision.

        Pros

        Smart, creative, dedicated employees. Welcoming atmosphere as far as individual team members and HR goes. Free snacks. HR is trying to do more activities for inclusiveness.

        Cons

        Certain elements in management are making it difficult for all the great people who work there to want to stay there. Check the box mentality from some of management. Poor communication from managers in some departments.

        Advice to Management

        Stop micromanaging. Be consistent. Advocate for your employees. Company will lose good people unless some things change.

        I worked at Stratus Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

        Pros

        Passionate employees at all levels. Depending on the team, they can be very creative, approachable, and willing to help solve problems. Free snacks.

        Cons

        Micro-managers. Poor or mixed communication from many in upper management. Some politics.

        Advice to Management

        Stop micro-managing and learn to clearly communicate. Set expectations upfront. Do this and you can keep some of the top performers.
