  1. 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    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.

    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
