Does there seem to be diversity at Metaswitch?

Pros

Friendly culture - "small company" kind of feel Everyone is very willing to help Very open to people changing roles Weekly sync-ups with management Use of Agile/Scrum makes lots of processes quite democratic

Cons

Terrible at training graduates who don't already have a maths/computer science background. Very bad at training people for whom "on-the-job" training is not suitable. Very male dominated environment, very little diversity. Nearly everyone is an Oxbridge-educated, obsessed with Runescape type, with a Maths degree. Too much legacy technology Very slow salary increases Too London-centric Offices very tired looking (this is about to change with the new Enfield building) Not enough customer feedback gets back to Engineering

Advice to Management

Embrace the shift to home working and allow people to opt for fewer days of work more easily. Consider bootcamps for training Engineering graduates. If you are serious about diversity, do not require a university degree as part of job requirements, and take a break from recruiting from Oxbridge.

Very male dominated environment, very little diversity.

How are senior leaders perceived at Metaswitch?

Pros

Some of the benefits from old management

Cons

The employee is not important you are only a number. The layer of managers are not people oriented, they are on the position only because of time in the company or they are good in their previous job but a few of them are good with people.

Advice to Management

Care more about employees, make it feel is still a good company to work for, not a company only cutting down expenses and not hearing from the employees.
