    I have been working at Metaswitch full-time (less than a year)


    The work environment is relaxing, tons of work to do which keeps me motivated and busy. The company is on its way to IPO. Altho Metaswitch is considered a start-up, it does not run like a start-up. The benefit is great, the company 401K contributes 10% of your salary at no employee's expense. I cannot be more happy to work here


    the parking situation is bad which means I have to be at work before 8am to find free street parking, otherwise I'd have to pay which can go up to $30/day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be great for the employees if the company could reimburse SOME parking expenses, since there is no designated free parking lot.
