    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.

    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.

    I have been working at MetaCompliance full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Lots of young, talented people who work there. Some genuinely great workers and even better people. Competitive commission rates if you get the chance.

    Cons

    A few months in, I went to 2 different members of management telling them that I was suffering with serious mental health issues with problems outside of work and was basically ignored. They were too worried about their own 'targets.' I then approached a senior member of the management team informally who said they would speak to me next time we were in the office. I was let go the following Monday for no specific... reasons when challenged - only 'conduct and capability.' This had a very bad affect on my mental health. This company may seem as though they are bringing jobs to Derry but I am just one of the many, many people who have been let go in similar circumstances with no warning or explanation - massively denting employee confidence in a town where it seems to be at a premium. Huge staff turnover - have to ask how they can afford it. Management are all relatives of CEO who aren't educated in their departments. One manager was very patronising in tone and liked to make jokes about other members of staff. Blatantly obvious which reviews have been put on Glassdoor to take the bad look from the poor but honest ones. See 2nd September 2018 for reference.

    Advice to Management

    Let your line managers manage rather than having their own targets. Running your business like a prison is not how to get buy in from your employees. Create a positive working environment and the results will speak for themselves. Introduce flexi time.

    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

    An energetic and dynamic Derry based company, with a seriously impressive global customer base within the Cyber Security industry. The business has some of the finest talent in the industry across all departments, and offers real career opportunities in a fast-paced and exciting environment.

    Cons

    The business is going through a growth phase, and this requires a strong work ethic and the ability, at times, to work outside of your comfort zone. However, if you thrive in this environment and love a challenge, this is the employer of choice for you!
