    I have been working at Merit Medical Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I work in the buiness offices so I can't speak to the clean-rooms and assembly lines but I think upper management genuinly cares about their employees and does their best to take care of them. Their time-off policies are nice and fair and coworkers and managers are very nice. Onsite Health Clinic with an excellent physician.

    Cons

    Office politics are everywhere! They offer a high deductible health insurance plan. There is to much upper managment and that upper management lacks good business sense. They don't know how to make good business decisions for the company to be profitable. Their training lacks and the company grew to fast so now it's going through major growing pains. Instead of cleaning up messes as they grew they just pushed things under the rug and said they'd address them later, now things are so big of a mess that no one wants to address the messes so they just keep overlooking them. This company is known for people getting some experience on their resumes and then going elsewhere for better job opportunities. The "lifers" stick around because they were around when the company started up but the younger generations seems to recognize the lack of business sense and turn over quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management surrounds themselves with "Yes Men." You need to surround yourself with people that will give you honest responses not people that are going to tell you whatever you want to here. You have to be willing to accept rejection and honesty from those who report to you if you expect quality results. Everything can't always be your way or the highway!

    I worked at Merit Medical Systems full-time

    Pros

    Personal and professional growth. I worked with a great group of people. Products and company have good reputation in the market place, access to senior leadership, the ability to really contribute and make a difference. Management has the right intent and does try to keep employees happy.

    Cons

    Raises can come infrequently. Layoffs, uncertainty at times in how the stock is doing and what that will affect. It often would affect raises or the 401K match would be put on hold when cost cutting needed to take place. Upper management over committing to new buildings, remodeling, acquisitions and thus put a financial strain on an otherwise very viable, sound company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Balance the growth with what is fiscally sound. Don't look to cut employee benefits at the first chance you have because it makes the company look weak when it is not. Create a stronger well defined, people centered culture.
