I worked at Merrill Gardens full-time (More than 3 years)
Great people! Relaxed culture allows you to be creative in your work process. They give you the tools to do your job, but don't have nit-picky policies you are forced to follow.
The company has been in a major state of flux for the last 3 or 4 years. It makes consistency a challenge, and sometimes requires upper management to be spread a bit thin.
Advice to Management
Hire the right people, and trust them! The company spends a lot of money ensuring that they hired the best possible employees, and has many Assets in their management teams. That being said, I don't feel like everyone's talents are properly utilized.
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Merrill Gardens (Seattle, WA) in December 2015.
The interview process was great! 2 interviews in addition to a phone interview prior to job offer. Scheduling was good, and they communicated times/changes very well. Professional and friendly environment. They kept to the timelines for hiring that they quoted at the beginning of the process. Great organization. Highly recommended.
I did not need to negotiate on salary as the initial offer was fair market rate.
