Simply a bad place to work and a terrible product
Senior Director (Former Employee) –  Palo Alto, CAApril 3, 2018
MetricStream leadership makes a lot of excuses for the lousy work environment and software with the term "startup" - which is funny for a 15+ year old company. The leadership team isn't known for success, and seem focused solely on trying to do as little as they can in order to sell the company and run.

A typical day for any employee will include being yelled at for some quality issue with the software, or some failure to sell to a client who figured out the software is a sham. I learned that there are people, primarily the management here, that is more than happy to ask you to lie for the next sale.

The hardest part of the job is selling and servicing the product. It simply does not work. The newest version is no better than the last, and the company has no concept of testing. A 'test' at MetricStream is a script that forces the software to work vs. fail.

The most enjoyable part of the job was realizing about 2 months in that it was okay to laugh at the stupidity and sail until I was either fired or quit. I chose the latter.

If you lack integrity and enjoy being lied to about the value of stock options and why your healthcare wasn't paid, this place is great.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
The management team, the software

Management blows
Former Employee (Former Employee) –  Palo Alto, CAMarch 6, 2018
I found management to be unsavory and less than trustworthy. The enterprise took its shot and has been unsuccessful. Now, it's all about an exit strategy.

Challenging, very fast paced, startup atmosphere with large company challenges
Senior Director Customer Advocacy, CSQ (Current Employee) –  Home-officeJuly 21, 2017
While I loved my job and what I did for MetricStream, the clients I interacted with on a regular basis, and the people I worked with and for, the complexities of a growing global organisation was a challenge.
The company, their software and the business model (GRC) they focused on is ever evolving, but is heavily influenced by government rules and regulations. This address challenges to businesses who employ a GRC strategy as year over year changes, administration changes (government) and other influences drive a GRC strategy.
Pros
challenging, compensation, work from home, travel
Cons
ever changing industry/government regs, global cultures, global hours

Very talented group of folks
SENIOR MANAGER OF PROFESSIONAL SERVICES (Former Employee) –  San Antonio, TXApril 21, 2017
MetricStream is filled with many technically smary people. Some of them as leaders could use coaching on the softer side of resource management. But otherwise its a good group of people focused on their goal of making MetricStream the top GRC company in the world.
Pros
Still in a start up mentality, meaning things move quickly. Lots of potential for personal and career growth.
Cons
Some people skill coaching may be needed for a few mid to sr managers.
