Metaswitch

Perks

2018

"Houses are available for new starters and interns. Expect lots of lunchtime activities and sports. We even have an amateur frisbee team with some Team GB players!"
Graduate, London
"The 7.5% pension contribution is nice and having the option to buy an additional 10 days of leave in your second year and beyond is great too. The free healthcare is a handy bonus but the best perk is the company housing for new starters as it means you don't have to scramble for accommodation and you get to live with other grads."
Support, Graduate, Enfield, London
"Most people get a weekend away in Europe with their wider team about once every 18 months."
Graduate, Enfield
"Providing drinks with a tab gets most people out of the office for a good ice-breaker early on."
Graduate, Edinburgh
"If you start working and need to move to London to work in the Enfield office, the company has some rented properties available to move into immediately so you don't need to rush around finding somewhere to live. Other offices will support you in finding somewhere to live nearby if you need it as well. We get a non-contributory pension that's well above the legal minimum employer's contribution, BUPA health insurance at an 80% subsidy, share options and free eye tests."
Graduate, Enfield, London
"We receive shares in the company, an annual performance bonus and a share of profits as well as a good pension."
Graduate, Edinburgh
"There are lots of opportunities for free lunches and dinners when you help out with events or interviews. We get regular morale trips and very flexible working hours."
Graduate, London

2017

"Employees own a significant share of the company. You have the option to buy into this and potentially benefit as the company grows."
Support, Other, Cambridge
"There's a good pension and healthcare cover for yourself and family as well as lots of clubs to get involved with."
Graduate, Enfield, London
"You are offered a place in a company house when you start, if you want it. This was a huge bonus for me as it meant not having to make stressful housing arrangements in London, which I was new to. There are lots of other perks including parties, morale trips, clubs and other events."
Graduate, Enfield, London
"The best perk is the company house, meaning that starters needn't worry about finding housing for their first year in Enfield. Other fun perks include morale trips to fun places and free drinks to celebrate major achievements and comings and goings."
Graduate, Enfield
"Health insurance, roadside assist offers, optician offers and Dell offers."
Graduate, Coventry
"The annual Christmas party is always at a strange location (such as Harry Potter World) and is a very fun activity. There are also multiple team building events throughout the year and many opportunities for new starter or anniversary drinks. The pension contributions provided by the company are very good and the company houses on offer for new starters are very high quality, very cheap (with bills included) and in a great location."
Graduate, Enfield, London
"The perks are generous but reasonably standard. They include 7% pension contributions, health insurance and a share scheme."
Entry level, Edinburgh
"Metaswitch has a very robust employee ownership programme where shares are awarded yearly to employees with the option to buy them immediately, or pay at today's price for the shares at the point at which they vest. Besides this, the company also has a significant morale budget for its teams that gets spent on team events."
Graduate, Edinburgh
"Free biscuits, fruit, tea and coffee."
Graduate, London
