    I worked at Meridian Bioscience full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It was a job. It gave me valuable experience on how not to trust HR, management, and co-workers.

    Cons

    Sexual harassment overlooked. No advancement unless you are part of the good ole boys golf club. Upper management (operations) intimidation. Hostile and racist work environment. Document falsification.

    Advice to Management

    This isn't 1930. It's time to reward emotes based on their performance not their sex, race, or MBA.

    Pros

    Outside of management, most people are nice enough. Some women in management positions outside of the traditional HR/Quality roles.

    Cons

    Technology is lagging, people are definitely unhappy and looking for a way out, advancement guaranteed for the good 'ol boys but the rest have to work really hard to achieve a promotion

    Advice to Management

    People are unhappy across the board, clearly there is a systematic issue that needs to be addressed instead of ignored.

    I worked at Meridian Bioscience full-time

    Pros

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

    Cons

    No ladder to climb, terrible inexperienced marketing group, technology is very outdated and will never keep up with new molecular technology

    Advice to Management

    Where 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

    Pros

    You 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.

    Cons

    Things 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 Management

    Quit controlling everyone and allow people to do their jobs.

    Pros

    Awesome 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.

    Cons

    Few 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 Management

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