    Former Employee - Behavior Clinician 

    I worked at Meridian Health full-time

    Pros

    It's a good foot in the door to working in mental health and case management

    Cons

    It was often difficult to meet productivity standards, which led to high job stress. If you are well organized and have a good case load it is very doable however.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    You will never be bored during your workday & you have great flexibility in tailoring treatment programs for each client.

    Cons

    Although compensated for mileage, you may be required to travel as much as 70 miles a day depending on your area. This tends to make for a very long day- when you are full time, you are required to go anywhere needed, including out of your regular zone. Weekends & holidays are mandatory

    I worked at Meridian Health full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Local employer with many locations to choose from. Stable income, not high, but steady.

    Cons

    Very high expectations for low salaries across the board. Work/life balance is marketed, but not a reality. 60+ hour week managers advised making family a priority instead of job, and must work more.
