I have been working at MetraTech full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Nice, very bright and conscientious people. Superior workplace location.

Cons

Arbitrary, haphazard management. Some sudden layoffs, followed by management denial that anything was different. Also lost a lot of great people and talent through frustration and lack of advancement prospects. Long hours for engineers. Multiple issues with legacy product.

Advice to Management

Hire from within the company - there's plenty of talented, highly experienced and loyal employees. Stop hiring managers who know little or nothing about the product - and take 2 years to bring up to speed. I wouldn't want to manage this company.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Overall good bunch of people. Varied Work. Good experience of technology. Small company with lots of ambition. Good team spirits.

    Cons

    Very bad line amangement. Very little respect for personal time. Very poor work life balance. Senior management turns blind eye to bad managers/directors and other staff which have either been with the company for a long time (kept on thier networking skills) or are in a senior position but treat thier teams like rubbish.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the people that make it bad for everyone else and not the hardworkers who are the ones which bring real value to the company. You've heard the complaints - pay attention!
