How are promotions handled at MetaCompliance?

Pros

Reward hard working staff with internal promotions and salary increases. The company matches your ambitions, you get out what you put in. Staff training is unmatched! The company goal and mission is constantly relayed to staff. Option has now arose to work in our new Atlanta office.

Cons

Have struggled slightly in some areas with the transition from a small to medium company but have now got a grasp of this after staff feedback through anonymous surveys.

Advice to Management

My advice is to keep doing what you are doing and the new employee focus on creating clear career paths is definitely working. Pay no attention to negative reviews on this site as everyone that has been let go has been done with a heavy heart and they have been given plenty of feedback as to why. Keep promoting staff internally, evidence of this can be seen throughout LinkedIn. Really push forward with the new employee focused benefits to ensure that Metacompliance continue to attract the best local talent in Northern Ireland!!

How is management perceived at MetaCompliance?

Pros

Friendly general staff who are easy to get on with, decent hardworking people. Talented employee base throughout. Nice offices.

Cons

1. Unorganised and unprofessional with clear nepotism: Organisation, forward planning and “innovation” lacking, stemming mainly from poor choices for management. Most management positions are filled by family members who are unqualified for the positions they are in. A lot of managers also lack people skills, team spirit, leadership and time management skills relying on those below them to get them by. 2. Poor pay and lack of respect: Employees are dispensable, paid unfairly and quickly hired and fired. 3. High employee turnover: Due to good employees choosing to leave for better offers aswell as the hire and fire mentality which comes back to poor management, poor forward planning and strategy. More employees than necessary hired in some areas (resulting in firing) whilst lacking in others (resulting in overworked staff leaving). Very poor employee support system. 4. Corporate culture: Employees in certain areas within the business are expected to behave and dress in a fashion consistent with a corporate environment, however others are not. Considering that the business is run unprofessionally, corporate professionalism is clearly lost on some higher ups and should be addressed here first. 5. Egos: This company prides itself on “no egos” without properly understanding that everyone has an ego. Ego’s that are out of control is where the problem lies, whilst this wasn’t an issue here a few years back, it is is abundant now. 6. Ageism and Sexism: Stems from the very top and filters through to management. An environment where those over 50 need not apply and gender pay gap exists. Advice: If you are motivated, hardworking and talented (particularly in areas of development, creative and support) take your talents elsewhere as you will never be truly appreciated here. If you do choose to join, be prepared to lose some of your soul as you bang your head against a wall trying to achieve your goals and the goals you set to help grow the company. If you are looking for some sales experience, go for it provided you can suffer egos and unfair treatment from higher up.

Advice to Management

Your employees are the lifeblood of your company, treat them as such and actually listen to them. If you are to hold on to your hardworking and talented employees provide an enjoyable environment to work in, pay based on what they deserve, and small benefits/bonuses for all employees - not just large ones for family members, higher ups and sales teams. It’s often heard here “always enhance the company” however, it is not a one way street and good companies realise that good employees deserve appreciation in return for hard work. When you get this culture right, you can focus more in your not so “quarterly” (for lack of poor organisation once more) meetings on achieving transparency and team building aswell as how you are actually achieving goals (not just talking about it) and less on trying to convince and brainwash your employees that you are good to work for. They will already believe this and you won’t have to ask them to post positive reviews! Fix these issues and your good employees will stay.

3. High employee turnover: Due to good employees choosing to leave for better offers aswell as the hire and fire mentality which comes back to poor management, poor forward planning and strategy.
