    I worked at Metia full-time

    Pros

    - friendly atmosphere - regular company status reports - gym on site - plentiful vacation & sick time - really good benefits packages

    Cons

    - poor management - poor project planning & work flow - lack of collaboration of departments - lack of foresight with regard to amount of work and preparation for future projects

    Advice to Management

    The complete lack of managerial planning and learning from past mistakes leads to the same problems happening repeatedly. Forcing employees to write weekly reports that include informing upper management of negative aspects of the office and individuals has lead to mud-slinging and blame passing. Making what seems to be half thought through alterations, that include breaking up systems that have been working, are not the way to efficiently progress the workplace.

    I have been working at Metia as a contractor

    Pros

    Experience working with a wide range of major technology companies and brands. Staff and managers are organized, professional, and courteous. Traffic Manager is very friendly.

    Cons

    There is a large pool of other contractors from which they choose for projects and you often go weeks, even in the heavy season, without work. To budget for the large audience of contractors, they pay a set project price (which is a recent change, as they used to pay the specific hourly). This ends up not accounting for whether the project runs over. Contract pay only, no benefits.

    Advice to Management

    It seems staff is treated very well. Possibly figure out ways to extend some incentive to contractors.
