    I have been working at Meridian Behavioral Healthcare (Less than a year)

    Pros

    During my employment at Meridian I have had the opportunity to grow exponentially as an individual and a professional. My education in Psychology has provided the theoretical framework to engage with clients but it was the hands on experience working with the clients directly that further reinforced the fact that I was on a career path that I was passionate about. Meridian has always provided me with the tools that I needed to excel as an employee which is evident by the four promotions that I have been given. I will always be grateful for the superior supervisors and colleagues that worked so closely with me in helping me develop into the professional that I am today. If you work hard and seek to a career in a heartfelt field, then Meridian is the place for you!

    Cons

    I am satsified with my career at Meridian and have nothing negative to share.
