    Pros

    Cash, it is a great place to make mad money.

    Cons

    Not much fun. I'm tired of slipping on the wet floors in the place. If the janitors would pick up a broom and mop the floors I'd be good to go.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working. You spend too much time looking for your next million dollar house than you do actually working on improving the company.l

    Interview

    The interview process for Metro Systems was quite disappointing. I was contacted by phone by Metro System for a software architect opening. In the phone call we established a meeting for an interview, a week later. HR person supposed to send me a mail for confirmation and all necessary details for the meeting. This email was never sent. With 2 days before I called HR person and she admitted that she forgot about this. Eventually she sent that confirmation email for the interview, but for a another day as we established, a day before. Yet i attended the meeting since it was ok with my schedule. At the meeting, she admitted, once more, that she messed up the date. Anyway, i had the interview. There were 3 guys and the HR lady. We had techincal discussion for more then 1 hour, maybe 1 hour and a half. The interview wen ok, discussion were very opened and topics interesting. But my general impression was that they had no interest in finding a candidate, and the interview took place only because they had to participate. I don't know, maybe they already found a suitable candidate for them. We discussed that I will be contacted by them for an answer, but once more, as I got used with that, I did not receive that answer neither today, many months later. In conclusion, the interview experience with Metro Systems was very disappointing, they were totally unprofessional.
