Operations Analyst (Former Employee) –  Detroit, MIFebruary 13, 2018
Great people to work with, fun to go to work everyday. Enjoyed it there. Everyone that i had the opportunity of working with seemed like they thoroughly enjoyed what they did for a living. Everyone came to work with a smile on and a desire to better the healthcare that meridian was providing.

Care Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Detroit, MI 48226January 29, 2018
Poor management, over worked, instilled fear of being fired into employees, VERY stressful. Only good things are decent pay and being downtown. But it's not like you can even enjoy the perks of being downtown, your brain is usually wrecked coming and leaving work.
Pros
Co workers
Cons

Would not recommend
Exchange Enrollment Specialist (Former Employee) –  Detroit, MIJanuary 29, 2018
Very cliquey, lots of favoritism. While there is training for new employees, and courses on topics such as learning Excel, or learning about Medicare, etc. there often lacked training in individual departments.

If you enjoy being Micromanaged stressed and never having time for your family this is the perfect place to work
Care Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Detroit, MIJanuary 25, 2018
Your whole day is planned out for you including 7 minute bathroom breaks, scheduled breaks, lunches and printing time. Oh and if you are on a phone call and miss or are late for your scheduled break or lunch then you are out of compliance and your performance level goes down. You basically are required to sit at your desk all day like a robot making and accepting none stop phones and if you are on a call or get a call when it is time for you to leave you have to stay until you are done with the call which could take an additional hour of your time. That's ok too if you like working for free because you wont be paid for any time that you have to stay over.
Pros
Free Food, Liquor and Beer
Cons
Micromanaged, cant leave desk unless it is scheduled for you, Very stress

Stressful
Care Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Detroit, MIJanuary 21, 2018
You are given a thin veneer of a positive culture. But the extreme micromanagement will negate that quickly. But the pay is good if that is not a problem for you.

Meridian Health
Community Care Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILJanuary 3, 2018
I am currently employed with Meridian. I have been here a little over 2 years and have enjoyed my time with this company. I enjoy the flexibility that being a remote Community Care Coordinator has. We provide a value service to our members that have Meridian Ins.

There is a lot of flexibility and this is a friendly environment. Co-workers are wonderful.

At this time there is a lack of opportunity for advancement, but I've been told by management that this will be changing in 2018.
Pros
Flexibility, Friendly environment, Great Coworkers.
Cons

Lack of strong leaders and job support
Student Intern (Former Employee) –  Detroit, MIDecember 12, 2017
Meridian is a great growing company. With that being said leadership is constantly changing, which can be a good thing, btu also doesn't allow time for peopel to cultivate into the great leaders they may have the potential to be, but don't have the opportunity to be DUE to further advancement or leaving the company. Lack thereof leadership caused confusion amongst teams and a lack of support from new leaders who were still learning their newly joined roles.

Care Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Detroit, MINovember 7, 2017
A typical work day is very stressful meanwhile management has no clue on how stressful the day is. However they claim they understand yet they aren't even on the phones or even around to understand.

Meridian looks great from the outside...
Manager (Former Employee) –  Detroit, MINovember 6, 2017
...but is substantially rotten on the inside. Management at Meridian is much like high school; upper leadership is a composite of life-long friends who have no business running a business. Leaders are often immature, unethical and capricious, which, in Meridian terms, are akin to their "Family Values." Work-life balance is near non-existent and employees are expected (and preferred) to be unmarried/uncoupled and available to work at all times, often 12-14 hours a day. The reward for these sacrifices? Alcohol at work, a nice view of Campus Martius and bagels on Fridays.

I was very disappointed in my experience at Meridian, but some enjoy the competitive, divisive and often demanding nature of the Meridian culture. There were some fun times and very talented individuals, but sadly, my ENTIRE department had turned over within a year of being at Meridian. It's not the work environment for everyone, obviously. Tread with caution if you are considering applying to Meridian.
Pros
Modern, beautiful work setting
Cons
Leadership has little to no "real world" experience, often vindictive/dismissive of those who do

It's a great place to start your career in healthcare, but do not stay long
Team Lead (Former Employee) –  Detroit, MINovember 6, 2017
I was at Meridian for over 4 years. It's was a great place to start a career. Coworkers are helpful, you learn the healthcare lingo and processes and get a chance to work on different types of projects. You also get to meet great people. It is not a good place to stay long term and to get into leadership. It's extremely political. If you are not in with the right people you will be forced out. Meridian is very good at sucking you in until you are working over 50 hours a week. It is strongly believed that if you are not working late, then you don't have much to do, it doesn't matter if you are coming in early.
Everything is extremely fast-paced. Leadership does not communicate downward and sometimes they don't even communicate to each other. No one is on the same page and everyone has different priorities making it difficult to get anything of value through. The turn-over rate is extremely high across all levels of staff, causing policies to continuously change.

CORPORATE PROVIDER SERVICES SPECIALIST (Current Employee) –  Detroit, MIOctober 30, 2017
management was unprofessional and extremely clicky. When brought the attention of HR and leadership nothing was done about it. Was forced to resign as I did not feel comfortable going to work everyday, especially knowing that things would not get better. Management put on a front for HR and leadership but treated their direct employees unfairly.

Complex Case Manager (Current Employee) –  Detroit, MIOctober 30, 2017
Back stabbing to the hilt!! Most of “Management” are so young, it is a joke. Micromanaging to the point of SEVERE harassment, and never let them tell you otherwise. Don’t try to have a “private meeting”, with any of your “leadership” team, because EVERYTHING goes back to the other people on the “leadership” team, and “favored employees” before you even WALK OUT OF THE OFFICE OR HANG UP PHONE!!!! So there is never anyone you can trust!! Despite what they tell you, turn over is VERY high, if they don’t FORCE you, to quit, then they will find a way to get rid of you, no matter what, and if they decide they don’t like you, get ready for the unemployment line!!!! If you do take a job, with this company, ALWAYS keep looking for a new job because you will NEED IT. Finding people that have been employed, with Meridian, for greater than 2 years are very few and far behind, if that doesn’t tell you something, I don’t know what does. Please take this review seriously and STAY AWAY from applying and/or accepting an offer of employment from this company!!!!

Utilization Management Care Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Detroit, MIOctober 29, 2017
Meridian Health Plan offers a great coworker based environment, that is my favorite thing about working here. They hire people with the intent of build a strong family unit. The company was founded by a family and the employees are an extension of their values. You can really tell the employees genuinely care about one another.

If you can work indepently and can learn once it has been parctially taught to you than this is a good job for you. The managment is very implusive and doesn't know how to invest in their staff. Expect a lot from you but will leave you hanging. Care Coordinator Position y

professional position (Former Employee) –  Detroit, MIOctober 24, 2017
It's a fun company to work for, but it's very intense, and demands are great. Flex time is not always an option and not a formal benefit. For me, there was not enough paid time off. Some of the goals and metrics were not reasonable, which made for a stressful work environment. The company does many fun events that all are encouraged to participate.
