    I have been working at Meridian Business Support full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Meridian is one of the larger independent recruitment companies and it gives its staff the autonomy and resource to further their careers. Communication from the directors is sometimes muddled but they do try and listen to staff concerns and have recently addressed the work/life balance issue by reducing the working hours.

    Cons

    Operating across different sectors there is sometimes an inconsistent approach.

    Advice to Management

    Keep things simple - recruitment remains a sales job where honest communication with clients and candidates is the most important thing.

    I have been working at Meridian Business Support full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Been at Meridian Business Support for 8 years since leaving University. Grown from Trainee Consultant to Branch Manager in that time. They invest in people, reward loyalty, and give you clear, realistic progression. Unpressurized, relaxed atmosphere where success is rewarded. Never have the feeling that someone is looking over your shoulder all the time.

    Plenty of 'extra curricular' activities including yearly awards do, football tournaments, go karting and more!

    Cons

    It is a hard job with long hours, but that's recruitment for you. The fast paced environment can mean your day runs away from you, but as long as you work hard and stay on top of things, the rewards are worth the stressful days.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being visible and contactable. Listen to staff and take their concerns / advice on board as to how to continue moving the company forward.

    You receive a day off for your birthday, which is amazing!
    Meridian have support me during my pregnancy and I feel confident through the way my colleague have returned to work that this will continue when I return from maternity leave.
    Meridian have also supported me through acquiring various professional qualifications.

    Cons

    Sometimes people are asked to hot desk but they like to have their own space.
    The broad range of products and services that Meridian supplies can make my job more complex
