    I worked at MeridianLink full-time

    Pros

    Healthcare benefits, 401k, salad bar and soda fountain, central OC location.

    Cons

    Merger has changed MerdianLink from a collegial, family oriented place to work to an anxiety filled place with people feeling they have to justify their existence. New management seems focused on showing ROI to new Equity Investment owner than caring about creating an enviroment where employees skills are valued and employees have growth and advancement opportunities. Management seems oblivious to the very poor morale...

    Advice to Management

    Nothing. The Equity Investment firm and their surrogates and consulatants are calling the shots now despite their public statements to the contrary. Might make morale a bit better with more frequent and open communication by management to the employees - but not sure employees have any trust in what management may tell them now anyway.

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

    Pros

    Management is pretty flexible and employees a lot of latitude to make decisions. Co-workers are bright, intelligent and creative. Most people really care about their work and are willing to help out others as well. Casual dress code. Fun relaxed environment. Game nights, movie nights, sport teams, really fun company parties. Monthly lunches that spotlight various employees. Daily salad bar, snacks, expresso...

    Cons

    Communication is not always the best. People sometimes forget to inform other teams of changes. It seems that when the teams / managers don't agree about things out isn't always resolved well.

    Advice to Management

    Top management should communicate more clear direction about company goals. They should step in and help the teams resolve differences.

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

    Pros

    They have created an environment that wants people to imagine and think. They make the company like a second home for the programmers. They provide free drinks, salad bar, weight room, gourmet coffee machine, cafeteria, candy bins, even a game room. They are known to have a nerf gun fight in the middle of the day. They provide kayaks and bikes for employees to use outdoors.

    Cons

    They are going through some growing pains and are very busy, so resources are limited and can have a lot of work to do.

    I have been working at MeridianLink

    Pros

    I have been working at MeridianLink for almost 3 years and I am happy to come to work every single day. The company has been making great changes in the past year and it's only getting better. We have great benefits and work perks such as monthly lunches, random waffle Fridays, free salad bar, candy bar, and soda fountain, on-site gym, lounge areas, and video game consoles to name a few. The benefits package is also great...

    Cons

    It would be great if there was more interaction and communication with the other office location and departments

    I worked at MeridianLink full-time

    Pros

    MeridianLink is an established name in the loan origination and credit monitoring business; an old player masquerading as a start-up in the financial sector. With an impressive client portfolio and strong products, MeridianLink has been winning for a long time, and you've never heard of them. I attribute this partly to a personable and humble leadership that has created a family atmosphere that permeates throughout its...

    Cons

    Vague mission statements and uncertain roadmaps mean employees need to look for their own motivation to work. The talent pool at this company is young, which means most of the staff is hungry to start making their mark on corporate America. But that juice only lasts so long, and more experienced employees and managers depend on leadership to steer the ship. Oh, and the lack of a 401K match is kinda weak as well.

    Advice to Management

    Clear company goals need to be trumpeted often and loudly. The products themselves could stand to benefit from the experience of a product manager who can communicate the needs of the business, distill it into milestones and benchmarks, and oversee the different teams towards those goals. It will really help to know how a person like me is contributing to the bottom line instead of just feeling like we're shooting an...

    I have been working at MeridianLink full-time

    Pros

    I have been with ML for over 5 years and love it. I have grown with the company and worked my way through different positions. I have learned so much and also have the opportunity to contribute to the design of the software (despite not being a programmer) and direction of the company. They listen to their employees and consider suggestions. Although they cannot accommodate every wish, they do work for overall satisfaction...

    Cons

    Of course not everything is perfect since there is no such thing. However, overall it is a great place to be. Here are some cons: There is no 401K match or contribution by the company. The salaries could be a little better but for some outweighed by a lot of the perks mentioned. For some the commute can be lengthy if you cannot live close to the premises. The communication for some aspects of the job could...
