Decent Company If You Perform Well

Former Employee - Site Manager in New York, NY
Former Employee - Site Manager in New York, NY

I worked at Merrill Corporation full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

If you establish yourself as a high level performer, the company will make sure you stay working. During my time at Merrill Corporation, I worked onsite with several firms. Sometimes a contract would expire or a new opportunity would arise and the company would move me to the new location.

Cons

The management can make decisions based on politics. There are employees that get by on relationships vs. performance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Since they had a variety of locations/clients, you could move around and be exposed to new roles and experiences.

    I worked at Merrill Corporation full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay, ok benefits, flexible work schedule, and a lot of really good employees

    Cons

    Where do I start. Management is stuck in the 1970's. The culture statement is Trust, Teamwork, Transition, and Accountability. Well, transition is guaranteed, with pointless reorgs every couple years. As for Trust, Teamwork, and especially Accountability? Non-existent at the senior level. They have a new CEO starting soon. Hopefully that breathes some life into this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit. Now. Seriously. All of you. GO SOMEWHERE ELSE and take your 1970's thinking and egos with you.

    Former Employee - Manager in Saint Paul, MN

    I worked at Merrill Corporation full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility in work schedule
    Employee empowerment
    Updated systems with good technical support

    Cons

    There are a lot of long-term employees at Merrill who are not well managed. Also, the company went through 2 major reorganizations during my time and appeared to be in line for a third. These reorganizations were expensive, time consumptive and not well executed. Lower wages than I have experienced in other industries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate your vision. I can't tell you how many times I heard the stories of Mr. Castro wandering the halls when the company was smaller. He knew everyone's name and his leadership grew Merrill into what it is today. Finding ways to continue that tradition of one on one interaction with employees would go a long way.
