    I have been working at Merit Medical Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fairly good benefits. Great co-workers, depending on what department you are in. Nice facility with community garden.

    Cons

    CEO is all about appearances. The stock price and sales numbers come at the expense of the employees. The month-end and quarter-end rushes are a joke. It just never seems to be enough to make management happy. People are under-utilized and not appreciated.

    Advice to Management

    Plan further ahead and stop using work-arounds to get daily tasks done. Implement better processes. Get rid of month-end rush, stick to realistic lead times. Work on boosting moral and giving people attainable goals to hit.

    Pros

    Great people to work with
    The company is doing well
    On site Medical Clinic
    Employee Garden Boxes
    Willing to work around your schedule (if your in school for example), for the most part.

    Cons

    They over work you and don't pay enough.
    Raises are hardly existent
    Bonuses only apply to Salesmen and higher ups
    They talk about being a company that cares about their employees, but then will hang them out to dry regarding promotions, going as far as to cancel an approved promotion months after it's been approved, in order to make their profits look better than they really are, even though they just talked about being under budget.

    Advice to Management

    Don't give all your salesmen raises, then cancel all promotions for everybody else in order to make your finances look better. Treat your employees right, or else you're going to lose them. For a man that boasts about being generous and caring about his employees, he sure seems to be pretty cheap when it comes to actually caring about them.

    Pros

    Founder and CEO is an amazing man with a big heart. He sincerely cares about his employees. He is proud of the company he has built and expects employees to work hard, know their business and be respectful.

    Cons

    Not much diversity. Unfortunately, it seemed that the white Mormon men were the ones that got ahead.

    I have been working at Merit Medical Systems full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    There are a few pros like the cafeteria, coffee cart, and onsite care clinic. They match your 401k contribution and add funds to your HSA account.

    Cons

    Merit will let good employees go without reason, yet they keep the ones who delegate everything and do not work. They will give positive feedback to employees one day and then fire them the next. This has happened on multiple occasions.
    There is also lack of training, which means many employees do not know how to properly do their job. They have to rely on other employees with "tribal knowledge." Doesn't work out very well when the employees with all the knowledge are fired or quit.

    Advice to Management

    Communication, communication, and more communication. I can not stress this enough. You are losing great employees because of horrible management.

    Come up with a structured intern program with specified tasks for the intern to complete over the course of the internship.

    I have been working at Merit Medical Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most people are enjoyable to work with. There is a cafeteria and an onsite care clinic. There is talk of an onsite dental clinic in the future. I appreciate the employer contribution to the HSA and 401K.

    Cons

    Too many politics and not enough employee appreciation. Too many family members work here. Everyone is afraid of the CEO.
    Benefits could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and quit hiring "yes men." Better training is also needed.
    Provide bonuses and raises to those who deserve them.
    Fix what is broken instead of sweeping it under the rug and hoping it fixes itself.
