    Pros

    A great work/life balance, you really get to leave work at work. The culture is unlike anything I've seen before. There's so much creativity and uniqueness throughout the office; Food all the time and options galore; Executive Management knows you by name; Work hard, play hard by definition. Endless learning and mentoring opportunities which really grows you as an individual and professional. Everyone has an open...

    Cons

    It's always busy, but it's technology so is that necessarily a bad thing? Somewhat below the curve in salaries but puts forth effort to make up for it in other ways.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Never lose who you are as people and as leaders

    I have been working at MeridianLink full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - The review entitled "A company for devs, by devs, others need not apply" is not correct. MeridianLink (ML) is a great place to work with great advancement opportunities. Recently, the two receptionists have been promoted to positions in Support and HR. - Management cares about employees and works with us to help us advance our careers. ML is willing to help employees with educational expenses. My past employers would...

    Pros

    -Strong company culture and feels like a family -Senior management is dedicated to the company -Several team building events and competitions that get a lot of people involved -Good healthcare/dental/vision package -Work/life balance is excellent; you are not expected to stay overtime or take anything home with you -The people work very hard and want to help others on their team succeed -We value our clients tremendously...

    Cons

    -Salary below industry standard (especially with cost of living) despite management's claims. Look at Glassdoor to make up your own mind -Limited vacation (2 week PTO, 3 week after 5 years) -Good strategy and vision need to be set and actually followed -Values need to come from this strategy and vision, not the other way around -Office politics between departments often delays projects and potentially outright kills...

    Advice to Management

    Be clear about your reasoning behind strategy and goals and then empower your employees to make meaningful decisions to achieve those goals. Also give them the tools they need. The "growing pains" of the company I experienced in my first year here are still here and the response has been to throw more bodies at the problem rather than fix the underlying cause. Trust the good people you hire to do the work. I will...

    Glassdoor can provide good information, but it isn't a salary tool. People self-report and may inflate their salaries in hopes of driving up the published salaries for their positions. To my knowledge, there is no verification done on what's reported. (I have seen salaries posted ...

    I have been working at MeridianLink full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    - CEO is a visionary. - Plenty of room for upward mobility. - Company is able to adapt quickly to demands and technologies. - Monthly lunches. - Job stability. - Vacation accurement increases after 5 years. - 410k matching - Solid health plan

    Cons

    - Few short sighted coworkers. - Old managers who aren't a good fit for tech company.

    Advice to Management

    To management and potential new hires, ignore the naysayers because they never gave the company a chance and brought down morale with their negativity. Things have never been better since they left. We could use a lot less "fluff" and reinvest those resources elsewhere. Please stop it with all of the feel good propaganda and use it promote hardwork and loyalty instead. Incentive/Rewards program for 10+ years would...

    Pros

    Team atmosphere, challenging position, always learning something new, good culture

    Cons

    Benefits- Vacation time accrual is very low, also would be great if it increased with each year worked instead of at your 5 year mark. Healthcare benefits seen higher than most companiesif this size.

    Advice to Management

    I have been working at MeridianLink full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Please Note: This is a great place for developers. My “Cons” section does not represent the Developers or SDCs . Other roles, be cautious. - Many great managers who truly care about employees! (Below VP level) - Health Care is pretty decent - Experience for building a resume - Waffles and Lunch once a month - Organized events - Good work-life balance

    Cons

    I find it very disheartening that MeridianLink respondents would not denounce the way a current employee talks about previous employees- “naysayers … never gave the company a chance and brought down morale with their negativity”. This shows a lack of integrity exemplifies the MeridianLink culture of “You’re with us or You’re the Problem”. Sometimes people are not a culture fit, sometimes they are mistreated. This moved...

    Advice to Management

    Start addressing issues within the executive management ranks. Empower the managers to do their jobs and run their teams. Computer Science degrees are not a replacement for hard work. Pay people fairly and treat them with respect, or they will just continue to leave. I hate watching good people continuously walk out the door (especially lately). The people who left were not the problem, the problem still exists and people...

    I worked at MeridianLink full-time

    Pros

    Many people in the organization are nice, caring people that are trying their best to do a good job.

    Cons

    - Not encouraged to grow talents specific to my role with education outside of the company. - Below industry standard pay - Calloused management structure, very top-down with decision making. - Uneven satisfaction between roles in the company. Some are very satisfied, many are less than satisfied. - Not much incentive to go above and beyond the responsibilities of your role.

    Advice to Management

    - Certain departments are satisfied while others are not. This is clear in some of the other reviews on this site. Instead of addressing the problem and implementing change, there is often the impression that the dissatisfied employee is wrong. - Personal growth and learning opportunities are sometimes viewed as signs that someone may leave the organization. For this reason, employees are sometimes discouraged from seeking...
