Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't change; don't lose that startup mentality; don't lose the passion; don't stop dreaming; don't stop looking for that great idea in every employee. And most of all don’t become the typical government contracting IT services company. One day you might just change the world.

    I have been working at MetroStar Systems

    Pros

    A relaxed work environment where you can reach out to individuals at all levels.
    If you are a self-starter, this is the place to be. The company is open to new technologies and they care about what you have to say.
    If you are a doer, you will get things done along with team support. Dedicated day (Thursday) to Get Stuff Done (GSD).

    Cons

    Long hours, which may include weekends.
    Culture can be overwhelming and cause people to not fit in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There have been numerous changes to the PMO that have greatly improve the support provided to teams at all level. At the same time, the restructuring of teams have allowed individuals to focus their efforts and increase their expertise. Keep on listening and adjusting internally, while keeping the entrepreneurial environment alive within the organization.
