Pros

If you want to get great work experience at a professional tech company, this is the place. More than one former developer at Strata has gone on to found their own successful companies in Silicon Valley. They hire young talent and give them more responsibility than you would typically get starting off somewhere else. In my opinion, the experience you get here is the most valuable thing you can get from working at Strata. I also thought they paid pretty well. You work hard but they do compensate you for it. I haven’t been paid better anywhere else in my career. And it is nice to work at a place that is helping healthcare. Makes you feel good about your job at the end of the day.

Cons

The biggest drawback is that there isn’t always clear leadership, and on top of that there’s a constant crush of projects. So you are always getting the message “we need to get this giant project done, now!” But, it’s hard to know what “this” and “done” mean, because nobody has clearly defined the project. There aren’t a whole lot of great managers at this place. It can be very stressful at times and you will probably have to work some long hours. Another thing is that the company culture can be a bit much. This boils down to Dan (CEO) being a type-A personality and not understanding that some people need downtime. I got tired of being forced to participate in every dumb company event they had (Halloween dress-ups, mandatory volunteering, field day type events), pretend to be having a great time, and on top of that, do my job and take care of the rest of my life. But if you’re a 20-something and you are outgoing and like “having fun,” you might enjoy the culture more than I did.

Advice to Management

Can you chill with the company events? People are already working very hard and some of them get burnt out by having to do all this extra. Other than that, decent job.

Pros

Strata is very focused on growing the skills and careers of current employees. The business is growing 20-30% per year. With this growth, plus the development of new modules, bringing in new functionality such as advanced analytics and building new services, there are always new roles and new types of roles opening up. Strata has focused on building and maintaining a high degree of customer satisfaction throughout it's growth. When issues arise with customers, tech services, product, client services, experience management and leadership work together to try to resolve the issues. As someone who works with clients, I can say that Strata genuinely wants to do what is right for clients AND the company.

Cons

Not really a con in the big picture of being part of a successful company... but Strata takes accountability seriously. Employees are expected to perform consistently against expectations for this role. If people are not performing well, leaders share feedback and coach people to get better. Feedback and coaching happen for everyone - a lot. For some people, even strong performers, getting a lot of feedback and coaching can feel overwhelming, even though it is meant to help grow someone's skills.

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 idea. They've also recently added a membership to linkedin learning for all new hires, and expanded training opportunities internally. CEO fist bumps me in the hallway. Can't complain.

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, and they may not slow down for you to absorb it all. If you're not comfortable with a slightly more unstructured and fast paced environment, this may not be the culture for you. There's also (as probably anywhere) a huge cultural divide between the two floors. Developers and designers, and product people in general tend to keep to their group, while consultants and sales and support (located downstairs) tend to keep to their group and also have a much higher turnover.
