    Pros

    Made few good friends on personal grounds

    Cons

    This company is unable to deliver to the client, what their product promise. Their product is unstable and full of bugs. They suffer from the scarce and ill-trained resource leaving the customers nowhere. Employee turnover is over 25%. So think twice before considering.

    Their offshore (India) office culture as compared to the onshore is two extreme ends of organizational behavior. So do not get carried away with the positive feedback on this forum.

    Inadequate training and resource material for new hires. Onshore office employees seniors regularly get involve in extremely cheap and vulgar communication and the facilities are terrible.

    I worked at MetricStream full-time

    Pros

    With this company, this word has no meaning. There are no pros, no professionals, nothing.

    Cons

    A company to which lies are attached to the skin. Guys in MetricStream management are such sweet talkers that you’d think you are in safe hands. Once you spend some days here, you realize what kind of crap things people do here to be in management’s good books. The only qualification and quality you need is to cuddle up to management. It will protect anyone who is a liar and sycophant.

    Advice to Management

    Just learn to be fair to your employees. That is enough. If MetricStream’s management just starts identifying the handful of good employers from the rest of the self-interested, self-promoting bootlickers, it would do them a world of good.

    I worked at MetricStream full-time

    Pros

    Their website is quite attractive

    Cons

    ComplianceOnline is one hell of an employer. There is only one way of scaling the ladder –being cozy with the management. You are forgiven for everything –including bad to nil performance –if you are close to management. If you know how to lie to management, it is easy to defend mediocre performance.
    On the other hand, no matter how much you toil, if you are not in their good books, the only reward for good caliber is harassment, sidelining and backbiting. I hate to talk about them. After working at ComplianceOnline, you can safely move to a career in politics. It gives you enough training for this profession.

    Advice to Management

    waste of time to give a advice

    Pros

    Seems to have articulate people in Sales

    Cons

    Till I joined MetricStream, I used to think that all these are the stuff of books and movies. It is only here that I actually saw how thoroughly useless moke lickers get away with anything, and sincere, talented, dedicated guys get pushed to the corner.
    Verdict: If you know the art of apple-polishing, you are going to thrive at ComplianceOnline. If you are one who has a mind of your own, forget that this company exists. Look for a better life elsewhere.

    Pros

    Company has just realized it's potential and they are doing everything that can to be successful. Hiring good people and putting processes in place now. All good for people working and new people joining.

    Cons

    There are growing pains - they still only one person in IT here in US so that is a bottleneck. There are some old timers who still work in that reference so people coming in new face some issues but if you boss is good it all works out.

    Advice to Management

    Changing the culture overnight is not possible but slowly and steadily have the old timers get to speed on the new culture of the company.

    Pros

    This company tends to compensate new employees very well. They are willing to take on people who have potential, but don't yet have the experience or skills for the role they are hired for. This could be a good company to use as a stepping stone in your career.

    Cons

    Advancement once hired is extremely difficult in this company. Both in job title, and pay, they lack the systems to properly recognize their employees for their work. The company requires a fair amount of travel, and long unusual hours as you will be working with employees in India on off hours. Payment from bonuses, and stock options are not a guarantee, despite completing your objectives, and are rarely paid on time. The corporate atmosphere is terrible, as most employees are unhappy, and those with the means to get out leave the company, resulting in high turnover. If you are looking to be happy with your work, this is not the company to work for.

    Advice to Management

    This company needs a complete overhaul of management structure. Employee compensation, and more importantly respect needs to become a priority.
