    I worked at Metafore Technologies as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    My experience with Metafore is very short in time span. But I found them to be very efficient in recruiting and processing talent needs of employers. They also make efforts to match talent's needs and requirements both professional and personal.

    Cons

    Given the very short time span I was on contract with the company I cannot say any cons about this company. It would not be ingenious of me.

    I have been working at Metafore Technologies full-time

    Pros

    The freedom is great if you are a self starter and get results. You have more power than you think as long as you are aligned with management goals.

    Cons

    Complacency was a problem. Some employees still slide along under the radar. Management is not focused or consistent.

    Advice to Management

    Walk the talk, be consistent and get realistic.

    Pros

    Benifits, work/life balance, management now seems to have their act together. The pay for certain jobs can go either way and all depends on experience and your ability to apply yourself. Don't think that just because you've done your job for a year that you're entitled to a 25% increase. That time has long gone with the older managment team playing favorites. If you work hard, you WILL get recognized.

    Cons

    Management was one of the worst I've seen in my life. Lot's of backroom deals, pay increases for staff that did no work but were "In tight" with the site manager and an HR department that ignored you whenever you brought up a concern. Promotions were always given to the brown nosers while those that worked hard were just given more work.

    Advice to Management

    Since most of the management team is gone now when things were ugly, I can't really say anything other then the current management team is awesome compared to 4-5 years ago. Keep up the good work and keep that communication going to all your staff.
