    I worked at MetaCompliance full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work was enjoyable. Team was fantastic. Learned a lot

    Cons

    Managements a network of nepotism and bullies hired without the right experience only to ensure the companies name was kept as a great place to work, and employees complaints where never heard at the top. The staff turnover reflects this as the expectation was work overtime to meet deadlines/get any form of recognition, but no overtime pay and no pay progression.

    I worked at MetaCompliance full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Some lovely genuine people that work in Metacompliance -Central location -Good opportunity to progress if you want -Well organised nights out

    Cons

    -Do not offer flexible hours or overtime pay -Have obvious favorites in certain teams, if you don't work overtime for free then you rarely get recognized -Too many middle managers who don't know what they're doing who get promoted to ensure they won't leave the company. -The boss's only concern is the sales team hence why he forced everyone to read a navy seal book! Sales and the training team are the only people getting bonus's when other teams like Support/Dev deserve it also. -A lot of posers in the office who feel they're too good to make conversation (particularly sales)

    I worked at MetaCompliance full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You're working everyday with an outstanding product and speaking with huge clients knowing your individual contribution is going towards something really special. So much room for personal progression through the company. Autonomy over your everyday work with enough support to grow and develop.

    Cons

    (only cons to some people) it's a very fast paced, High pressure working environment which can excite (or scare) some people.

    I worked at MetaCompliance full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This is a structured and hard working environment that offers so so many opportunities for staff. From what you can earn to how much you will learn and advance your skills, I couldn't recommend metacompliance more as a place to enjoy your career. You're expected to work hard and push yourself, I personally thrived in this environment. Management and HR were always supportive of me with the perfect level of professionalism and care. I left the company for something closer to home and have never found the level of work ethic and reward that can be gained through working at metacompliance. If you work here and have the right attitude you will thrive!

    Cons

    None that I could mention

    I worked at MetaCompliance full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Central location and beside several places to eat.

    Cons

    The job in a nutshell is cold calling businesses and hard selling training courses over the phone. No work/life balance and encouraged to do daily unpaid overtime. Overall a very unhealthy place to work.

    I worked at MetaCompliance full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Very welcoming company and it's dynamic: this company has a vision and everyone who works here has a clear sense of that vision, commits to the action plan and contributes to the team effort and so is a team player in the true meaning of the term and is rewarded highly for doing so. I really enjoyed working here. My team was great: again very focused, fair and understanding, hard workers and a real pleasure to work with. I had a very positive work experience here because of my team and the company standards. I highly recommend to anyone who is a hard-working team-player with high standards to keep an eye out for their recruitment drives and apply!

    Cons

    I didn't experience any cons.

    I worked at MetaCompliance full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great talented workforce. Amazing creative and development teams.

    Cons

    No one in this company seems to be happy except for the select few which seem to be in some sort of clique. Some very unhappy faces working every day here. Very low morale. Senior management are so above themselves . People are wearing ysl or louis vuitton or Rolex watches just to prove their status. There are some real talented people working here who are so undervalued.

    I worked at MetaCompliance

    Pros

    Bright office with some genuinely lovely people

    Cons

    As well as the lovely people there are some not so nice people. I joined MetaCompliance with a good “can do” attitude and left disappointed, disheartened and fed up. There are many loyal members of staff who will do anything they can do launch themselves further in their career with no regards to any one else. I was the victim of bullying from my superior and I had no one to turn to as they had HR and management in their pocket. If you’re not staying late to do extra work for free you’re disregarded as a good employee. You could work yourself to the bone 5 days a week and you won’t get noticed until you’ve done something wrong. Management did all they could to break up groups of friends including staggering lunch times and moving teams around. The office is too small for the amount of staff employed. Promises were made to move before I had left, and almost a year since, they still have not moved. Any good reviews for this place have been written by people currently working there with the promise of more money or bonus. All in all MetaCompliace is full of empty promises and bullies, and I wouldn’t recommend a job there to my worst enemy.
