What Employees Say
I have been working at OSTC full-time
One of the best things about OSTC is the people. The company has family feel to it, and all staff are approachable, including the Directors. It's very inclusive with social events planned... monthly during the summer. There's an obvious scope to grow and develop within the company, which is actively encouraged, especially if you are motivated to do so. The company are dedicated to employee development, with regular appraisals / goal & development reviews. Salary is very reasonable for the area. The company itself is branching out on different directions, and you feel the enthusiasm, ambition and dedication from the Board, which in turn gives the entire company a positive feeling and belief in the future of OSTC. Overall, I would recommend OSTC as a good place to work.
The lift is still broken after God knows how many years. Good for exercise, but doesn't present a professional first impression of the company. Neither does the facade of the building. Things which... i understand are in hand. However, they've been in hand for years, and it doesn't seem to have progressed any further. Another con is the lack of benefits. Salary is reasonable, but I feel more benefits, such a Private Medical / Dental, should be offered to staff.
Advice to Management
It would be beneficial for your staff if you included more health benefits (on top of the salary), such as PMI and Group Dental, maybe a corporate rate for a local gym, rather than just a pension.
I have been working at Met Group for less than a year
The people you work with at Met Group are a welcoming and eclectic bunch of people. They offer lots of support and their kindness is genuine. The jobs given to you will challenge you and test you but... the ultimate result is rewarding and will strengthen you.
The hours can be long if not slightly tedious but this is something that come with the job and lifestyle of working at a trading firm.
