I have been working at Matrikon

Pros

- Diversity of workforce
- Customers
- Family oriented
- Performance salaries

Cons

- Stressfull at times
- Dynamic targets

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remove the unimpressed and lower performing employees. It is disheartening to have to work sometimes with those who you can tell do not care. If they are only looking for a paycheck they can go into retail.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the advantage of Flat organization in order to get fresh ideas from new people, sometimes is hard to see outside the hole and new people can provide new ideas. With a Flat organization should exist a technical caree that allow grow with the company and allow to get salary raise.

    I worked at Matrikon

    Pros

    -Excellent place to gain experience
    -Office social club is very active and fun
    -Young average age for a proffessional office
    -Open Door policy with senior management

    Cons

    -Matrikon actually has an excellent open door policy with senior management. Myself and my department never had a problem with this. Except the fact that when we do bring something critical up nothing gets done about it. In fact there was one time where we brought a very important issue regarding a manager to our senior management and we were written up by Human Resources for "not going through the proper channels to address the issue". What is the point of having an open door policy if issues will not be dealt with at that level? Needless to say the issue was never brought up again due to fear of getting written up again or let go.
    -Some frontline managers are inexperienced with leadership and management. Cannot properly guide there employees to grow or gain experience.
    -Salaries are not competitive.
    -When more roles and responsibilities are given, no compensation is provided. Basically, more work, yet same pay.
    -Extremely high turnover rate for a corporate company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Management - Please do a thorough evaluation of leadership and management skills of your frontline managers as they are the ones that encourage the growth of your employees which means growth of your company. Please do not stress an open door policy if you do not want to deal with your employees issues.

    Frontline Managers - Please be a leader and someone to look up to. If you lack knowledge in a certain area, try to go learn it instead of using your employees as an excuse.
