    Pros

    Flexibility, steady paycheck. CEO is a fearless leader and knows how to foster good work from his people. The secret to success at Merit is to make the CEO happy.

    Cons

    No career advancement; management not interested in developing employees or establishing career pathways; managers often aren't qualified to be managers (i.e. limited people skills, guidance, and knowledge); rampant cultural favoritism and nepotism. Hard work and dedication are rarely acknowledged; deviation from the dominant political affiliation should be kept to oneself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop and invest in your employees. Show appreciation for their efforts. The company will benefit greatly from this.

    I worked at Merit Medical Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    People who work there are great, direct manager was willing to teach and train you, they encourage lateral moves within sites/departments.

    Cons

    No chance for growth in the same career path, Nickle and dime every second of your PTO. Absolutely horrible inclement weather policy. They do not allow to work from home even for those that can perform their work remotely. Too many after-the-fact policies. They are incapable of addressing issues specifically without generating another even more confusing policy. High turnover rates. CEO micro manages all projects and personally has to sign all ECNs which makes approvals processes very long. Obsolete technologies for employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please try to have a retention policy, I did not want to leave but was not even asked if there was something they could do to keep me.

    Pros

    not much turn over, opportunity to move within the company.

    Cons

    must change jobs to get real pay increases, can get stagnant, low pay compared to similar companies in the area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    offer more room to advance within departments rather than having to switch departments to advance.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, excellent manager, forward thinking company.

    Benefits. Clean-up work needs to be performed at the ground level before additional systems/companies are taken on.

    I worked at Merit Medical Systems for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The company had a large catalog of supplies

    Cons

    Terrible Regional Manager which was clueless and had no management skills. Product launches hyped up and then major back order.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not hire a sales representative as a Regional Manager just because of tenure. Not everyone is management material.
