What are the best and worst things about your company?
Team atmosphere is really good, and there's an emphasis on working together to get jobs done. Management ensures that the work everyone is doing is the sort of thing that interests them, and it remains challenging and engaging.Documentation issues when working with a legacy codebase! Also the Cambridge office is small. Often we have to work with remote colleagues, which is sub-optimal.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
Great environment, friendly people, great work culture, interesting work, consistent raises, good communication throughout company, very good canteen. There are trips, sports, events organised across the company. A focus on development is emphasized. They give you a company house to live in with other employees for your first 6-12 months.Not many things. Nothing that's specific to Metaswitch at least.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
There's a very friendly atmosphere at work and coming into a graduate role, you are very well supported. The welfare and success of the people in the company is obviously very important to the company and so you have plenty of opportunity to develop as an employee and take on new challenges. They are also keen to ensure you have a good work-life balance. I really enjoy my job, as it is varied; you can find yourself testing a variety of products, using a variety of tools and methods. There's a lot to learn, moving into an industry different to my degree and specific things about the products, which I'm enjoying.Enfield is a lovely town to be working in, but it isn't in central London, which does somewhat limit locations in London you can live.
