    I worked at Meritas full-time

    Pros

    Free beverages and food. One week of free vacation during holidays.

    Cons

    The leadership team on the finance and operations side is terrible. Its a place where one error can lead to a dismissal; as so many leaders were let go. Though I left amicably, it haunts me how so many left after me were leaders/people who really cared. The culture is absent; employees have no pride there because the turnover has been ridiculous. Associates consistently go over their supervisor's heads to get themselves an edge, because they are scared. Upper management does not provide any feedback other than the normal private equity excuse that they better get it done. The President of the company claims he left larger companies to come to Meritas for the relationships, but his door is always closed and he's not personable at all. Associates frown the minute they are in there; there is no bonus plan for associates (people who give it their all so leaders look good). Turnover for a company with less than 30 associates (at HQ) appears to be 50%.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Its been one of the worst run companies in the north suburbs, recruiters are even scared to recommend the company. The place needs a new culture, new leadership.

    Pros

    Work/Life Balance
    Young workers makes for nice environment
    Great Location in NYC

    Cons

    Not enough Diversity amongst staff
    Should have a discount for employees children to attend school
    Management is very one sided not open to changes and people different from them. Their way or no way is the right way.
    Internal communication needs improvement
    No open door policies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn more about diversity, and embrace others that are different, and be open to different points of views. The school will continue to stay at a stand still if you keep bringing the same types of people on board and expect a change.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
  6. Not happy with the management of the school or how much employees are paid compaired to other schools.

    I worked at Meritas

    Pros

    It is a small environment with a low teacher to student ratio. The hour of work were great Monday to Friday 6 hours a day.

    Cons

    It is a very expensive private school but very low budget for the teachers to use for school supplies etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to put a lot more effort into acknowledging the performances of ther staff. Also, be more competative with salaries.
