    Pros

    Good pay, decent supervisors with emphasis on training. Benefits are on par with other companies

    Cons

    I worked at Meridian Services full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    It is in the area I was looking for and they serve and under served population.

    Cons

    It is a huge company and I don't feel the look at the total individual in the interview process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The ads posted on internet sites should be more consise. The whole individual needs to be considered to include their views on working with a particular population.

    Pros

    Meridian Services is continuously growing, offering more employment opportunities. They have high standards of care for their consumers. Meridian requires all management employees to volunteer their time to any organization or cause. They are always coming up with new ways to make life better for the consumers and all the staff who work for the company. The officers who head the company have huge hearts and always make their best efforts to make the company a better place.

    Cons

    The field as a whole has high turnover rates for direct care staff due to the nature of the work, but Meridian has many solutions for this.

    I worked at Meridian Services full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    None, to be perfectly honest.

    Cons

    Having had experience with a very good company in a different part of the country, this place was shocking. Corrupt, unethical management across the board. Poor training. For a company who makes their $ off of people as their clients, unreal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They don't take advice well because they already know it all.

    Pros

    Competitive wages (better than other companies in the industry), many opportunities to take training classes provided by the company

    Management is almost entirely women, all the way up the chain of command

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote more men to leadership roles

    Pros

    They always have jobs, due to thier high turnover rate.

    Cons

    Management does not treat employees with respect. If there are opportunities for advancement, they would rather hire from outside for them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give managers more management training. Teach them to treat direct care employees with the respect they deserve.

    I have been working at Meridian Services

    Pros

    Flexible schedule for the most part
    Nice PTO package

    Cons

    Expected to go the extra mile, you give them and inch, they will walk all over you
    Limited leadership
    There is a lot of gossip
    No reward for loyalty
    Large work loads for most, and it is expected that you take it on
    Not a healthy work environment, this company will wear you down to nothing, and then replace you with out even blinking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward loyalty, respect employees, take a course in proper communication. You are running a large company like it is a small company.
