I worked at MetraTech full-time (less than an year)Pros
They make you feel comfortable and part of the team; they train you; people are friendly; people actually help you learn and will talk to you when you have a problem; managers are approachable; good technology---databases, coding, and more; they had a team dedciated to helping with travel arrangements and stuff like that; nice kitchens; fussball table; great location in Waltham. I've heard they built a lounge for the employees.Cons
The company appears to churn employees. People just disappear. I'm not sure management has a plan other than to save money. I looked online: Plenty of articles stating how MetraTech has solid financial backing yet is appears to be run on a shoestring. Just about everything and everybody seemed to be outsourced or a contractor, except for a few people.Advice to ManagementAdvice
I wasn't there long enough to be sure they knew what they are doing or not. I thought I saw a pattern: Company meeting announces good stuff, followed by another company meeting at which a bunch of people disappear, followed by yet another meeting at which people are told not to worry. Maybe I'd say they should be more honest with the troops. The CEO and the VPs, like I said, seemed nice and approachable.
For the optional stuff below:
I didn't interact much with Mr. Swartz. But, given the CEO is supposed to set the tone for the company, I reluctantly give him a thumbs down.
I'll recommend the company based on my short tenure. Just be prepared to be let go at any time.
The outlook? I left some months ago. I don't know what's going on there precisely, but I've heard some people were just let go again. So. I have to guess the outlook isn't good right now.RecommendsNegative OutlookDisapproves of CEO
