Does Strata Decision Technology offer parental leave?

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. Free Snacks and drinks in a cool office. Casual and fun. Invests in the people and the company. Normal growing pains but open to suggestions on how to solve things that are happening. Honestly, keeps getting better and better with each year.

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.

How are senior leaders perceived at Strata Decision Technology?

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.

How is management perceived at Strata Decision Technology?

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 the offenders are still working in the company currently, getting promotions and pats on the back. Those that have left the company did so to climb the ladder elsewhere, not because they were held accountable for their actions. High level employees are incompetent, many of them have elevated well beyond their capabilities. Many fake positions are invented with large salaries and no use just to keep around older employees who have been with the company for some time. Recently some of this info was left in an insecure public drive and was found by an employee. The result of this was the person who found it was fired, whilst the high level employee who caused the breach was shielded with no repercussion. For a company entrusted with massive amounts of PHI this is troubling on a much higher, and honestly legal/public concern level.

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.
