Stay Away

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at MetricStream full-time

ProsI do not have any.

ConsPoor management that does not care why so many GOOD employees are leaving. Employees who have never managed anyone become managers and do not have any idea how to manage employees. You are expected to work very long hours. Bad/hostile attitude among many employees. Don't expect to be paid on time. Culture/benefits way under par. Board of Directors are crooks.

Advice to Senior ManagementRead exit interviews.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

ProsGood responsibilities.
Decent pay hike for an intermediate jump in between careers.

ConsEverything is haphazard.
Lack of planning.
Heavy resource shuffling to meet project deadlines.

Advice to Senior ManagementHire some good consultants, who can project your resourcing needs.
Or download FOSS tools for resource projection modelling. Just dont depend on Excel and people, who dont know what are the parameters for resource requirements planning.

Horrible !!!!!!!! Not at all for Married People!!!!

Member of Technical Staff (Current Employee)
Bangalore (India)

I have been working at MetricStream full-time for less than a year

ProsNothing good to tell about it!!!!

ConsWorklife balance is nil. No values for personal feeling!!! Management is too worst. It you tell your concerns you will be targeted even if you do good work. People should work like late nights almost every day. Need to get permission for not working in weekends.

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat employes like Human Beings!!!!!!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Pathetic company to work with

SMTS (Current Employee)
Bangalore (India)

I have been working at MetricStream full-time for more than 3 years

Prosgood for freshers, didnt found any other pros to complete 20 word minimum

Conswork culture, partiality, the one who works end up working and one who doesnt ends up enjoying

Advice to Senior Managementdo not let your HR team give good comments in glassdoor, it doesnt workout. word of mouth has more power, bad attitude by management

Yukkkk..!! It stinks here...!! Looks like all the good reviews are provided by higher staff so that new people can join.

SMTS (Former Employee)
Bangalore (India)

I worked at MetricStream full-time for more than a year

ProsPoor Management & lack of ownership at all levels provide you enough opportunities to make mistake and then escape.

Cons1-No work life balance..actually no life at all, once you join 2-Weekend work is so frequent that it is almost a 6 days working organisation 3-Zero onsite opportunities...if you talk on this..they'll send you for 15 days max. 4-14-16 hrs / day is considered as normal. 5-they cheat the customer by providing illogical dates and then grab the neck of employees to deliver.6-no support from leads and managers.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop cheating customers..

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
