Current Employee - Sales Associate  in  Fullerton, CA

Pros

Full timers receive great benefits.
If you were previously compensated decently it will carry over
contests with good prizes
Kickoffs that give food and prizes.
the team is usually young and agressive.
as long as you do what your said and just do your job. It can be pretty steady.

Cons

Part timers get crappy benefits
always understaffed
commission is horrible
politics
no guidance whatsoever
management has alot of power
As a working student this job benefitted me. I have been with metro for a very long time. If you have to work here.. if not there are other jobs that I would take over this one. I wouldn't say run for dear life but you work for a low cost provider, get paid low wages, and as a result deal with lowly people... And one more thing GET USED TO SLAMMING!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

listen to your employees sit down and hear what they have to say. Try and take care/reward employees.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Sacramento, CA

    Pros

    Pays the bills and work with some interesting people. Industry technology is very interesting as is the marketing and advertising practices.

    Cons

    Very poor managment. No true appreciation for employee's. Very secular and compartmental with regards to information and team work. Low morale in most area's.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take time to actually manage and communicate with employee's. Half-baked and poorly planned activities need to stop. Encourage team work.

    Former Employee - Database Programmer  in  Dallas, TX
    Former Employee - Database Programmer in Dallas, TX

    Pros

    Benefits and bonus are good. Bonus was 10 to 15 of base pay

    Cons

    Lot of little tyrants running around. Not unusual for "urgent" requests to come at 5:00 pm on a Friday evening. Line managers have little or no experience in management. Promotions rarely occur. Performance reviews based, not on performance, but whether or not the manager likes you. Was part of a department that was cleared out by firing 4 employees and driving 3 out. All were replaced by either Indian or Chinese developers. Despite all the charm exuded during employee meetings, CEO Lindquist views employees as people looking for ways to get his money.
