    I have been working at Metia

    Pros

    Nice vacation plan - why most stay
    Quiet - if you like to work in a morgue
    Easy commute from the eastside - near Bellevue and Kirkland
    No dress code - no clients come to the office
    No one is forced to party hardy to be "in"
    Nice people overall who like to have fun and have an outside life
    Good connections to MSFT

    Cons

    Home office is in the UK. The Kirkland office feels like a sweatshop so the VPs can rake it in
    Low salaries
    For a small office, people don't know each other. The VP doesn't know his employees and doesn't care
    Main client is Microsoft internal/tech - can be soul-sucking work with no recognition
    Management plays favorites. Performance reviews are a big joke
    Watch who you talk to - a huge circle of gossips who pass info. Includes management and HR

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want the company to get better, trust and respect the employees.

    I have been working at Metia

    Pros

    The only good reason to work at Metia is if you want to be a slacker. it is easy to fall through the cracks and do nothing for months and no one will notice because they are all so incompetent. There are also some attractive women working there.

    Cons

    The senior management have absolutely no clue what they are doing. It's like amateur hour and the Keystone Cops all rolled into one disastrous circus of failure. If you like working with a team of former Wazzu sorority girls who "Coug it" on a daily basis, this is the place for you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being pompous fools and learn how to do something worthwhile. Or, at least go work in the service industry where you belong.
