    I have been working at Meridian Bioscience full-time

    Pros

    There is a new CEO who is focused on empowering people and changing the culture for the better. Things are starting to turn around, morale is on the upswing, and there have been positive changes to leadership. Don't pay attention to the negative reviews because it's not the same company it was. A lot of the employees who have been here for a long time are resistant to change even if it's obviously for the better....

    Cons

    Some of the tenured employees are sometimes difficult to work with because "that's the way it's always been done." This makes it difficult to get things done, especially when it's middle management resisting.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with transparency. Work on training the sales force because they are green and need coaching and improvement.

    I have been working at Meridian Bioscience full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    New CEO who started Oct 2017 is focused on EMPLOYEES and PRODUCT PORTFOLIO. (This site still lists the former CEO.) Recent improvements have been made with regard to company culture, employee engagement, and management transparency. Great talent has been hired, including many leadership positions. New compensation opportunities have been created. Company feels revitalized. Do not let the negative reviews deter you....

    Cons

    Professional development, advancements opportunities (depending on department), high medical insurance deductibles

    Advice to Management

    The people who work at MBI are a phenomenal group. Continue to focus on making MBI a desirable, SUSTAINABLE place of employment with professional development and EQUITABLE advancement opportunities for all levels of employees, not just upper management.

    Pros

    There's No Pros at this Company

    Cons

    This was the worst Medical Device company I have ever worked at. I will say if your an attractive woman RUN!!! Men that work here especially upper management are all perverts! Working here is like a soap opera. While the Rich get Richer the Poor gets Poorer! Their equipment is all outdated. The training is terrible.

    I worked at Meridian Bioscience full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Drinking and commiserating with the other Reps who were just as unhappy at our Sales Meetings. That was fun.

    Cons

    I went to Meridian after years of working in sales at Fortune 500 companies after my commissions had plateaued and was looking to get into Medical Device Sales. At least I was making commissions then, Meridian has the worst, most unattainable commission structure I've ever seen and nearly none of the reps made anything past our base, which is very low for the industry. Holy turnover! Half the reps and sales managers...

    Advice to Management

    Quit the hand holding. Invest in R&D, the products are very dated and not competitive. Pay for product retention, $5.5 Million is sales but no commission??? Fire all senior and mid management.
