    Pros

    Merion used to be a growing, successful company but for the past 5 years, it has been a dismal environment marred with frequent rounds of mass layoffs, and no department has been spared. There really is nothing good to say about the way the company currently operates. Because the business model was only successful when it relied on a steady stream of recruitment advertising dollars in print publications, and because the company did not foresee early enough that the print revenue would quickly dry up, they have had to scramble to launch various new divisions that come no where near generating the previous levels of revenue. Each knee-jerk reaction the company makes only seems to cost more people their jobs.

    Cons

    Harsh working conditions where every department is so lean that there are not enough bodies to do all the work, yet upper management keeps making so many sudden, yet universal, changes that require a ton of extra work to implement. None of these big changes that divert precious resources ever seem to pay off and then the next round of layoffs ensues. Morale, pay scale and benefits are low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company needs real, visible leadership and clear communication of a truly sensible and forward-thinking vision. I am not sure such a vision exists.

    Pros

    It may be good for new college grads to get a year's experience.

    Cons

    Management are "yes" men/women. No direction , even managers cover their behinds. Always looking for someone to "blame"
    Eliminated all benefits when times got tough, 401K, tuition reimbursement, hiked healthcare costs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat staff like people, not chattel.
