    I worked at MeridianLink full-time

    Pros

    HQ is in a good location. Benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Has changed to a highly political culture. Owned by private equity now. Changed from flat management to top heavy with many more directors and C level. Open door process offers a place to speak your mind only - no changes come about. Work/life balance is no better than anywhere else now. What once was a nice company owned by a small group of individuals who were trying to build a great company, is now owned by...

    Advice to Management

    The real management is the private equity firm now. Much like house flippers want to make money buying houses and selling them for a profit, private equity firms are usually in the business of buying companies to make money selling them a few years later.

    Work is demanding but that's not unique to MeridianLink and this line of business.

    I worked at MeridianLink full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great coworkers, decent benefits, monthly company lunches, some recent modernization

    Cons

    New management is driving the company into the ground and employees are finally starting to see right through the empty promise of better days to come. Expect limited salary increases, stunted upwards growth, very high turnover, endlessly-growing backlogs but no resources to conquer them, micromanagement from new bosses who know nothing about processes and products, zero regard to employees' mental health, and recurring...
