    I have been working at Metaswitch for less than a year

    Pros

    The company culture is excellent, and there is a real focus on each employee's long term development, not just trying to extract the maximum amount of work in the minimum possible time. This manifests itself in multiple opportunities to give feedback which is actually listened to and many morale events such as pub trips, crazy golf, and sports days. There are also many out of office things happening weekly, such as a plethora of sports, games and interesting talks. The work I was given was the right level of difficulty, and was genuinely useful for the company, which is always incredibly important in any job.

    Cons

    The company house I was staying in was a little bit run down, and the washing machine sounded like a helicopter struggling to take off, although that said everything was working (and they replaced the oven incredibly rapidly after it broke) and it was only £9 a night.

    I have been working at Metaswitch for less than a year

    Pros

    - does not require interns to have prior computing experience, great for new starters in computing who's looking to build experience - have good training and development plans on employees; plenty of opportunities to learn - flexible working hours - relaxing and friendly (and productive) working environment - meaningful project for interns

    Cons

    The location of the Enfield office in is very far from central London, which might bring some inconvenience. (But the company offers company houses which are quite close to the office so it's not that bad.)
