    I have been working at Meridian Business Support full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Been at Meridian Business Support for 8 years since leaving University. Grown from Trainee Consultant to Branch Manager in that time. They invest in people, reward loyalty, and give you clear, realistic progression. Unpressurized, relaxed atmosphere where success is rewarded. Never have the feeling that someone is looking over your shoulder all the time. Plenty of 'extra curricular' activities including yearly awards do, football tournaments, go karting and more!

    Cons

    It is a hard job with long hours, but that's recruitment for you. The fast paced environment can mean your day runs away from you, but as long as you work hard and stay on top of things, the rewards are worth the stressful days.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being visible and contactable. Listen to staff and take their concerns / advice on board as to how to continue moving the company forward.


  2. I worked as a temp and found my skills under utilised. The work offered was very basic but that goes with temp work.

    I worked at Meridian Business Support full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very relaxed environment Friendly consultant-level staff Good HR teams

    Cons

    Poor management throughout the company Lots of 'visions' but no actual support to make them a reality Real lack of industry knowledge- operate like all large agencies- to make money however possible rather than through relationships

    Advice to Management

    Work closer to your staff Improve bonus structure Train more on markets rather than the recruitment industry itself - no one has any idea!

    I have been working at Meridian Business Support full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible working is encourage You receive a day off for your birthday, which is amazing! Meridian have support me during my pregnancy and I feel confident through the way my colleague have returned to work that this will continue when I return from maternity leave. Meridian have also supported me through acquiring various professional qualifications.

    Cons

    Sometimes people are asked to hot desk but they like to have their own space. The broad range of products and services that Meridian supplies can make my job more complex

    Advice to Management

    Ensure employee feedback actioned to benefit all employees and make improvements.

    I worked at Meridian Business Support full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Training. Flat structure. Awards dinners. Generally a good bunch of people. Very much plodding along. Very helpful hq team. Directors contactable.

    Cons

    Rubbish management. Experience of discrimination. Meridian health was managed by a ridiculous team of people who were like a group of school girls.

    Advice to Management

    Sort it out. And you'll have a class place.
