Pros: staff at the individual sites try to give good care with no resources or support.
Cons: meridian cannot maintain any decent employees.
This company has no respect for it's employees and any attempt at helping patients is usually a wasted effort. If you do not like to compromise patient care and line the pockets of the CEO and shareholders you should not work here.
Have a license in this state that you want to keep in good standing? Make SURE you are not employed at Meridian.
The longer you stay the more benefits they take away and yet expect more productivity from the employees. Upper management preaches professionalism but posts pictures of themselves to the employee email that is discriminatory against certain groups of folks they pretend to treat. If you dare mention the transgression ,hope that help comes from above because you find no satisfaction from the corrupt internal structure that is Meridian. The supposed presidents, vice presidents, business development people , HR, and Directors laugh along in fear of standing up for the employees they are supposed to help feel valued so good care can be given to those entrusted to Meridian's care. This is a FOR PROFIT entity that at the least fulfills that portion of their mission.
Upper management is rewarded with perks and parties while being unqualified to run their sites because they are only concerned about filling beds regardless of whether a patient is appropriate or safe to be in Meridian's care.
WATCH Out Meridian is always hiring because employees leave, or are encouraged to leave, when they try to do their job or refuse to cross ethical boundaries. If you work for Meridian be prepared to feel undervalued, understaffed, underappreciated, unheard and unsupported, I cannot really say anything positive about the time I invested/wasted at this company.
