    I have been working at Metaswitch full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I get to work with one of the sharpest people. Metaswitch conducts a thorough interviews to ensure the best talents are hired. I do not get constantly frustrated working with not-so-bright people. The work atmosphere is great, it can be demanding from time to time, but overall I enjoy coming to work everyday.

    Cons

    can't think of anything. More perks perhaps?

    Pros

    Good people, flexible schedule, definitely a company that tries to do right by their employees and customers. I've never worked at a place where their customers loved them as much as at Meta.

    Cons

    If there's a strategy, I'm not sure what it is. Meta must grow to survive. It is at a point where the legacy business will not do it. And the new products are not yet ready to pick up the slack. Cynics claim that the new stuff is a day late and a dollar short, but that is dangerous negative thinking. However, unless the CEO puts some serious resource in, that's what they will be. Go big or go home.

    Advice to Management

    Accelerate product development by an order of magnitude. Build a pipeline of /major/ new products, things that will sustain the business for the next ten years like the legacy business line has done.

    I have been working at Metaswitch full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The work environment is relaxing, tons of work to do which keeps me motivated and busy. The company is on its way to IPO. Altho Metaswitch is considered a start-up, it does not run like a start-up. The benefit is great, the company 401K contributes 10% of your salary at no employee's expense. I cannot be more happy to work here

    Cons

    the parking situation is bad which means I have to be at work before 8am to find free street parking, otherwise I'd have to pay which can go up to $30/day.

    Advice to Management

    It would be great for the employees if the company could reimburse SOME parking expenses, since there is no designated free parking lot.
