I have been working at Filmetrics full-time (More than 10 years)
I was not manipulated or threatened into posting a review, period. Personally, I'm not a fan of this website because it allows anyone to review a company, and hide behind an anonymous post, regardless of whether or not they are or were ever actually an employee of the reviewed company. However, I felt compelled to offset some of the negative postings against this company and its employees. I have been working for Filmetrics for over 10 years. Outside of a very few, I work with fun and creative people, who are serious about their work and care enough to go the extra mile to help each other succeed and produce great products! Filmetrics is a small company and yet began offering health benefits before it was required. Paid Time Off is generous and management continues to assess and expand its offerings. Furthermore, there is nothing but growth opportunity at Filmetrics for just about anyone that proves capable. This is, after all, a company that continues to grow and prosper every year.
I agree with an earlier post about surrounding road construction and subsequent traffic. If you live north, east or south of Sorrento Valley, the commute can be challenging, to say the least. Also, for those that are intimidated by and prefer a buffer between upper-management and themselves, Filmetrics is a smaller company and interaction with upper-management is inevitable. However, some would consider this access and visibility to upper-management a positive.
Advice to Management
Continue to seek out more employees with a positive attitude and who have previous work experience; these seem to be the employees that appreciate a company like Filmetrics.
