    Pros

    Join as fresher here and with in 10 years become manager
    Quality is bad and customers raising concerns about quality? - no problem MetricStream never question any tester
    Don't have good knowledge in coding? Don't worry no code reviews so no one finds who wrote the code

    Cons

    Strong MetricStream technology? forget about family and weekends - die at MetricStream

    Advice to Management

    Management itself is the problem here. They use good working employees like tissue papers. Management need strong resources to solve customer escalations and they fire them in the layoffs. Logically it doesn't look sensible but it happens at MetricStream. If you are good working employee, management promote employee, salary hike which employee never thought, aboard opportunities, nominate to top talent, awards and what not? yes !!!! termination with reason of high salary.

    All miracles happens in MetricStream - no one can understand this management thinking and process.

    Advice to Management

    - Nurture start-up culture
    - Don't use extreme "at the office" work hours to measure work done
    - Rein in micro managers and train them better

    Pros

    Can't imagine - As per the reviews, there doesn't seem any.

    Cons

    To know the complete summary of Metricstream - Scroll a bit to a review posted on 26 August 2017 by the heading - "Disgusting Culture, Fraud Top Management, Sick Thought Process and Worst company ever worked for"

    This covers the summary of Metricstream..!!.

    People getting offer from Metricstream are not joining after reading the reviews and getting to know more about this organization. Save yourself..!!

    More than 50 % of employee strength was laid off in last 1-2 yrs without any notice. This is a regular norm here and happens almost every alternate year. All of a sudden they will close their verticals and fire the employees on the same day so that they don't create any trouble inside.

    In 2008 150 employees (out of 250-300) were removed in an insulted manner on a fine day. Same thing happened between 2016-17 when 4 verticals were closed one after the other in separate intervals so that not much of news can gather. Almost 700 employees were asked to leave during this period. March 2017 was black month - removed 250 employees without any notice. They were not knowing that this was their last working day. Imagine the trauma they and their families might have gone through. This had nothing to do with the appraisals as many of the employees had got promotion recently and were top performers.

    Advice to Management

    Can't align with fraud management and a fraud organization...!!
