    Pros

    Health benefits are great. Great work atmosphere and opportunity to increase salary/commission is excellent. Pretty good time off. Learned a lot about the IT industry and how to work with Fortune 500 clients. You really are compensated based on YOUR efforts. The training and tools provided well prepared me for the role.

    Cons

    9 hour days are normal. Must be self-motivated to drive thru goals at times. 50% of day involves making outbound calls.

    Pros

    Over Pay - compensation is the only reason employees stay

    Cons

    The worst leadership ever - family owned and the CEO / President is micro-managing and not employee friendly. There is a reason the company is losing money and can't grow its the lack of culture from the top down.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company

    Pros

    This company has a background of doing the right thing, for the right reasons - a foundation of taking care of the employees and treating them like family.

    Cons

    Along the way as the company grew, much of the focus was turned to "more money, more money" and there was a lost sense of employee value.

    Advice to Management

    Return to who you once were... culturally.

    Pros

    Initially there was fantastic leadership in the office until that manager left for another opportunity. There was no "lead by example" mentality and little to no encouragement across business lines.

    Cons

    Poor to very little management, very little communication, other offices were completely disconnected from HQ, Constant change of goals and direction on a monthly sometimes weekly basis

    Advice to Management

    I believe that this could be an incredibly productive organization with some organizational changes. They have a good service to provide that is now more than ever in high demand.

    From the perspective of a recruiter: The company gives an enormous amount of misconceptions before hiring

    Pros

    -Potential for decent money if you outperform coworkers

    Cons

    -Environment is actually cutthroat, unlike what they tell you about teamwork and cooperation during interviews
    -Work is extremely micromanaged; Numbers have to be met daily on a quantitative basis. If they are not met, employees are expected to do work at home, despite an already long work day (8:00AM to 6:00PM).
    -New recruits are told that the position is NOT a sales position, but the work is entirely sales related and clients are essentially pieces of meat, rather than human beings. This aspect is borderline unethical for several reasons because it involves telling lies to clients, submitting them to other unethical vendors, and simply wasting their time to meet management's numbers.
    -The opportunities for growth within the company only lie within the parameters of other recruiting positions and sales positions.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to quantify everything your employees do. It's not difficult to tell if somebody is simply slacking, or if they are putting forth a concerted effort for your company. Be more forthright with employees and don't try to suck them into positions based on hazy details or flat out lies. Stop enforcing a take-work-home policy, or at a minimum, decrease the length of work days.

    One hit wonder

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

    Pros

    Met a lot of talented people.

    Cons

    Company is top heavy (upside down pyramid). Too many admin personnel and sales. CEO values sales staff (even though they cant sell) over operations (people that work on projects). Personally, i think the CEO is misguided and trusts the wrong individuals. If you're a "brown-noser" you'll fit in perfectly.
    To sum it up: salary/benefits - good if you're in sales or administration, not that great as an analyst. Good luck getting a raise or promotion. It was near impossible 4 years ago unless you really kissed someone's ass. Can't imagine how it is now with the economy and all.
    Cutthroat environment. Management will praise you one day for a stellar performance then hang you for minor slip up.
    Avoid working here if at all possible. But if you do, don't drink the "kool-aid"!

    Advice to Management

    Good luck
