    I worked at Merrill Gardens full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.
