    I have been working at Metapack full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The reason to join the company was that I felt Metapack had a less rigid and structured organization (which may not be for everyone but it was good to me). As usual, a review starts with your department and the people you work with closely. In my case, I’ve found that the Project Management & Implementation leaders are extremely helpful, flexible and reliable when you need them. You have room to build the connections you need in order to complete your job, HR staff does a great job in communicating with is needed, Office management is trying to improve the office environment and I must say the fruits and snacks provided are quite good (and I hope it will be improving in quality and ‘living healthy philosophy’). Again, in my opinion, you need to be a self-starter and had a very flexible attitude in order to work here and honestly, I’ve got the feeling that the management is working towards improving every area of the company’s culture.

    Cons

    So far none really.

    Strategic direction of company is flawed. They do not understand or value enterprise accounts. They do not have any solid and tested new products which are reliable. New pricing model is over inflated. Interested only in chasing sales at the expense of long term relationships.
