Pros

Benefits are good now that Salesforce purchased them. Young atmosphere and they want to be innovative.

Cons

All sales opportunities are fed from Salesforce--no direct sourcing, therefore all delivery opportunities are downstream from Salesforce. The result is a you are brought in to do the work that SFDC deems passable. Delivery is "old school" CRM type of mentality and from what I see despite multiple means of capture is rarely hitting the sweet-spot on work effort specs and is off on most opportunities. Transparency may have once existed but now is missing. In general the "talk" is good but the "walk" falls short. The transition to SFDC is hitting these guys hard. They are scrambling to step up and figure out who and what they are now. Lack of clarity, lack of understanding--difficulty in grasping SFDC paradigm makes for an odd environment. Meanwhile SFDC is pushing the largest deals to close, and individual goals reflect that push. A very odd combination. If you are a sales guy look elsewhere. If you are a delivery guy the excitement and cool opportunities will not be here. May have been a great company to work for but look for a mass exodus now.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

... go by the SFDC comments. Come in at the highest pay rate you can and highest title because chances are high that you are not going anywhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be a better vision and a better message to the employees
    Employees should have more ownership of their work and feel like they are creating value

    Pros

    Model Metrics has a completely laid back atmosphere, it is by far the best company I've ever worked for. When work needs to get done, you're expected to get it done. That being said, they strongly encourage a fair work/life balance. You receive unlimited PTO as long as it fits into the schedule on your project. There is an amazing on-boarding process that consists of a week on-site (if you work remotely like most of the company does) and a 30/60/90 day plan that involves multiple certifications, which are strongly encouraged.

    The other employees that work at the company have a strong sense of teamwork and always seem willing to help. The company uses cutting edge technology to increase knowledge share and communication. They are on the forefront of emerging cloud technologies and consider training extremely important.

    Management is transparent. They let you know what it going on, the goals and plans they have for the future, and how they plan on reaching those goals. Upper management also takes care of it's employees and knows that as a services company they would not have an offering without them. They have been rated Chicago Tribune's #1 company to work for in Chicago, and its a title well earned.

    I would highly recommend working for Model Metrics if you are a hard worker that likes to joke around, but can be serious when you need to be, are interested in learning and expanding your career and skill set, and want to be a part of an absolutely amazing team.

    Cons

    As described in the other posts, the benefits are not the best, but they are working on improving them. They are not a massive company yet, but as they grow so will the benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the same vision you have. It will scale as long as you continue to hire the caliber of people you have been. Don't turn into one of the big houses that forgets about it's employees.
