High turnover, low quality staff
Employee (Former Employee) – Gainesville, FL – May 19, 2019
Meridian scrapes the bottom of the barrel as far as employees go and so your coworkers will often change quickly, not uncommon to have 10 people fired in a day, with 15-25 people hired every two weeks.
People do stay for a long time, but they often either have nowhere else to go, have been promoted because they need to fill a spot, and so are paid decently.
Restructuring happens often, so your boss may change regularly, and your boss's boss. They always say they are expanding, but in the same breathe they will say they need more grants and didn't do well lately, because likely they lost a grant recently and can't afford to pay people on what they make currently.
Very bureaucratic, things move slowly, and things don't really seem to get done. Departments are separated from one another for the most part and there is almost no communication between areas or even within departments. Things run very inefficiently and in a disorganized manner for the most part.
Their patients are mostly those who can't pay, and those who either have mental illnesses or drug addictions.
They say they are it in North Florida, but don't be surprised if in another few years a competitor comes along in the area puts them out of business.
Non-profit run like the government
