    I worked at Strata Decision Technology full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Much like other companies, your experience at Strata is heavily dependent on your manager. Because I moved within the company a fair bit, my experience was mixed, but for the last two years I had great managers and I enjoyed working there. Are there some bad days? Of course, but that is the case in any company. My interactions in my most recent role were primarily with the development team and some stakeholders on the consulting side, and I can't complain about the people I worked with. There are definitely some unprofessional people who, thankfully, I did not have to work with too much. But like some of the other reviews suggest, these people tend to be in positions of power because of which their aura permeates through the culture making the environment unprofessional on occasions.

    Strata gave me the opportunity to find what I really enjoyed doing, and that is something I am very thankful for. They let you move internally if you prove yourself, which is great, especially right out of undergrad when you don't necessarily know what you want to do. Also, I met some truly awesome people who remain my closest friends.

    Cons

    My biggest problem with Strata is that they are confused whether they are a tech company or a consulting company. I think they WANT to be a consulting company, but at the end of the day they sell a product without which they might as well shut shop. The culture, the office space and the dress code are very consulting-esque and the political hierarchy and power lie within the consulting teams. As someone on the dev side of things, this was one of my biggest reasons for leaving.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Strata Decision Technology in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was a little long. I went through a corporate recruiter and had a 30 min interview with her followed by a phone interview with HR.

    After that was the onsite interview. There was a short 45 min exam on problem solving and data tables. I had two sets of interviews with two people in the room. Both lasted roughly an hour

    Interview Questions
    • No real trick questions. The problem solving questions were fairly standard brain teaser type questions.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Fairly straightforward. My offer was from my director and not HR. Salary was in range with what I expected and was able to negotiate my start month.
    Accepted Offer
