Terrible environment

Technical Sales Representative (Former Employee)

I worked at Meridian Bioscience full-time

ProsGreat technical support group, most people outside of sales and marketing are competent

ConsNo ladder to climb, terrible inexperienced marketing group, technology is very outdated and will never keep up with new molecular technology

Advice to Senior ManagementWhere to start?? If you like being treated like you are not valued in a company and you understand you will be fired if you give your opinion, than you might like it here

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Auschwitz

Technical Sales Representative (Former Employee)

I worked at Meridian Bioscience full-time for more than a year

ProsYou will bond with other reps because only those who have lived through this nightmare understand how bad bad can be. Friendships made have become great sources of counseling and support.

ConsThings are as bad if not worse than reviews posted on here. Any of the positive reviews we've been able to figure out which manager wrote to help boost the rating score. PTSD is very real.

Advice to Senior ManagementQuit controlling everyone and allow people to do their jobs.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

If your'e not in sales, company is A-OK.

I have been working at Meridian Bioscience full-time for more than a year

ProsAwesome atmosphere, smaller company, family type setting, everyone is nice and friendly. So many bad reviews on here, mostly from sales reps that couldn't sell, don't let that scare you away. Awesome benefits, i couldn't be happier.

ConsFew issues with upper management, one senior director for sure should not be where he is. I''m not even sure what is job entails besides signing paperwork.

Advice to Senior ManagementLook to re work upper management, directors and senior directors. Don't play favorites, be fair.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Terrible company culture for sales reps

Technical Sales Representative (Former Employee)

I worked at Meridian Bioscience full-time

ProsYou get a company car.

ConsEvery negative review on this site is accurate. Sub par target products, inexperienced sales management, reactive to market, pay is ridiculous and most reps not making commission. Getting crushed by the competition.

Advice to Senior ManagementFire all sales management. Hire people who have experience managing sales people.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Poor environment. I would look for other opportunities.

Technical Sales Representative (Current Employee)

I have been working at Meridian Bioscience full-time for more than a year

ProsThe rank and file are really great people. Those that are not tied to Sales and Marketing really love the company and are passionate about it.

ConsPoor products and pipeline. Sales and Marketing are blamed for everything. The company pays poorly and is very cheap. Sales leadership is inexperienced in most cases, and do not know how to treat people. High turnover. You are only as good as your last sale. Very few people make bonus. Don't believe the total package.

Advice to Senior ManagementTop level change is necessary. Stop over reacting to everything. New top sales leader needed asap.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
