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

    The management at Metabyte are a decent lot. They are professional and have the best interests of their employees in mind. Fair is the only word that comes to the top of my mind when I think about the management style.

    Cons

    Too lenient, complacent even. High level of tolerance towards incompetence. Need to better understand ROI to all stakeholders. Indecisiveness, delays in deciding even simple things can be worked upon.

    Advice to Management

    Hire better employees. Constantly see the type of talent available in the market. Benchmark these against the type of people you have. When you identify gaps, fill this up with proper training (and don't delay making this decision), or replace people with better ones. Don't be scared to take tough decisions, at the time you need to take them. No point taking decisions after the damage is done.
