I worked at Metabyte, Inc. as a contractor (More than 3 years)

Pros

Company recognizes the talent and potential of its employees and values them as its primary asset. Metabyte has a strong foothold in the silicon valley (California) which gives a diverse experience to its employees. The administrative staff is very friendly and always willing to help. Company's new year party is a fun event that provides an excellent networking opportunity to its employees working for different clients.

Cons

Company lacks a well-defined performance review policy for its employees esp. independent contractors. As an IT services company, company should invest on Employee Development program to keep its employees abreast with latest technology innovations and enhancements. Company has almost nothing to offer in terms of benefits.

Advice to Management

In the quest for new clients, please be thoughtful of retaining existing ones as well.
Senior Management should also increase in proportion to the employee headcount and # of clients, in order to be easily accessible.

    Pros

    It's a small company, with basically no management at all, so there's a lot of room for autonomy and the self-directed.

    Cons

    There is basically no management at all. The CEO is obsessed with "Leadership" and conducts mandatory leadership seminars, but there is no one in a high-level management position here, and he does not manage- at random intervals he meddles, but that's it. There is no cohesive communication, inept people are never let go (critical in a tiny company!), and projects are assumed to manage themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Please please please hire high-level managers and project managers. And when you *do* hire experts, please respect and avail yourself of their expertise rather than going with your "intuition" and opining that "maybe all the experts are wrong".

    Pros

    Work independently but they provide enough support to guide you on your career. They seem to have your best interest in mind but I actually never met in person anybody from their office.

    Cons

    Low starting pay. Lack of personal touch.
