    I have been working at MetaCompliance full-time

    Pros

    I am joining my other colleagues to relate the positive things about working at Meta. Its a great place to get real experience, particularly if its your first job. The company has an active policy of recruiting outside of the IT industry and training people up. Not everybody makes the grade. I like the fact that they are ballsy enough not to let standards fall. People are promoted from within. I came in with no IT... experience and have exceed my wildest expectations in terms of growth and take home pay. This is not a UK or American blow in. This is a Derry based company that is in it for the long term. Its a family run business which means the top guys are committed. Being a small town there are other people in the org that are related. I have not seen any kind of nepotism. Although I hear sour grapes from people who have not fitted in or who have a inflated view of their own importance. Its the same in every company. I believe the management have improved benefits significantly compared to the other places I have worked before.

    Cons

    Lots of millennials! There's noo satisfying these lads. Some think that because they live in the Republic the company should set up a seperate health care program for them! Sexism: HR sides with the female staff and turns the air conditioning off cause they are too cold! Even though its roasting. There was not enough pizza at the One Direction event.

    Advice to Management

    Expand the use of coaching into every department.

    Pros

    MetaCompliance is a fast-paced ambitious company. This means that if you're fast-paced and ambitious then you'll succeed and be highly rewarded. The company is using some of the best software available to equip every area of the business to deliver the best results. Management always encouraging everyone to think of themselves as competing and winning against the best in the world, which really encourages you to up... your game. The opportunity for growth and development is endless, on many occasions you find yourself at events and courses with your entire team, whilst other often larger organisations only send one person, this really gives you a sense that the company care about you and that the cost of development is irrelevant.

    I dont work here no more

    Cons

    Advertises graduate jobs and pays 16,000 for working to the bone. The money is not worth the effort put in. Staff very clicky and false promises of promotion made to a lot of staff.

    Hello and thank you for your review. It must have been some time ago that you left your employment with MetaCompliance. Our graduate entry salaries have not been at that level for over 4 years, which would have been market rate at that time. Now, the starting figure reflects the current market rate and, as the individual's skill set and value grows, we reward them on an annual basis, or earlier if promotion is involved. These are not false promises. We often refer to MetaCompliance as being a meritocracy were the rewards equal the effort made. This has been true for 8 - 10% of our staff as they have received promotions in the last 12 months. This is significant due to the rate at which the company is expanding and also the quality of employees in our workforce who are deserving of this recognition. With regard to your last point, working hours are a standard 37.5 hours and we don't feel that is excessive. We hope you have found employment elsewhere that you enjoy and is providing the fulfilment we all deserve in our working lives.
