    I have been working at Meridian Technologies as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    I can't think of anything that was positive about my experience with this company.

    Cons

    Very low salary, position was nothing as described and changed constantly. Very seldom were the hours equal to or above the projected amount. More manual labor than technical environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest and show some follow up support. My recruiter changed in mid-project and I never heard from the new lady.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Return to who you once were... culturally.

    Pros

    High hourly rate for jobs

    Cons

    No health benefits, poor contract management, zero followup, lack of concern

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow up with contractors; are they happy? Work toward actually finding a second contract before the first one is over. At least offer suggestions if no current jobs available.

    I had trouble on my 6 month contract the second week on the job, Meridian did nothing to correct the situation, nor did they even bother to contact my client supervisors until two weeks before my contract ended.

    I knew there was no extension coming two weeks before Meridian did, despite my repeated phone calls and emails for them to check into this.

    Forgo the 'mixers' and 'team lunches and actually find a contractor a second gig. I'll never work for/through Meridian again.

    Opportunity started off very well, with a dissappointing ending.

    I worked at Meridian Technologies full-time (more than a year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
