Low pay and expensive benefits
Case Manager (Current Employee) –  Muncie, INJune 25, 2018
Pay is low and if you have a family then half your check will pay for your benefits. There is minimal chance for advancement and hasn't been a raise in years. Beyond the direct boss, the upper management is so out of touch with what's going on that they think adding on to your work load is the answer to the problem and recently took away vacation time.

Needs home office to take control of outlying facilities
Behavioral Clinician (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INJune 25, 2018
Home office runs like clockwork. Remote locations run by rules in direct conflict of orientation. Management is not there to help those served but to tear down employees. At our location, the only one known, everyone has lost keys and cannot work the hours needed or have access to tools to do the job. Management says nobody under management can be trusted to work in the building alone. They took everyone's keys away and said nobody is or will be trusted until they get promoted to a position that matters.

Corporate office never comes to visit or see how the place runs. The support staff that now has to answer the door for the 30 employees without keys is not nice and hates everytime someone comes to the office to work. We were all told to work at home and not come to the office.

This company has great values and mission but has lost its way. It allows its managers to run the place so there is a huge turnover but nobody has ever asked other employees why. only 2%-5% of hires stay.
Pros
Flexibility
Cons
Management, Healthcare, putting people down, never meeting our boss because we are below her

Very "clique-y", poor management
Former Staff (Former Employee) –  WaterfordMay 24, 2018
The program itself is great for clients. The pay and benefits are better than most places but I feel as this is done to make up for the unorganized and poorly managed facility. As a former employee, many times managers would disregard staff's needs. I witnessed on several occasions, supervisors and managers often neglected to get the full story from all involved when an issue arises. One supervisor lacked leadership and instead of guiding the staff under her, she avoided it while criticizing staff. I also witness management having clients sleep on cots in hallways to "fit more clients in". This place is clearly not in it to make a difference for those struggling with addictions.
Pros
Benefits, cleaning ladies
Cons
Scheduling, management, organization

Behavior Clinician Technician (Former Employee) –  Muncie, INMay 20, 2018
Good company to work for, I feel it is a little hard for career advancement unless you go back to school. The pay was decent but not enough for the job we had to perform.
Pros
Flexible Schedule
Cons
Work late hours.

Stressful
Behavioral Clinician (Former Employee) –  Anderson, INApril 19, 2018
My position as a behavioral clinician was stressful and challenging due to the multiple layers that I had to go through in order to work with a child/client who was in the foster care system and in need of services. Some of those layers were: DCS, supervisors, foster care agency, foster parents, principals, school office staff, social workers and other social services workers at the school, the teacher and the child/client. I did not feel completely supported by my immediate supervisors or the school staff.
Pros
Working with children in need.
Cons
Too many layers to work through and too many supervisors.

Would not recommend
Behavioral clinician (Former Employee) –  Anderson, INMarch 30, 2018
Would not recommend this organization to anyone who wants to get in this line of work. The job itself requires some type of degree, whether it be a bachelors or associates, but offers pay that does not match the credentials required. Management is run well, and does a great job of creating a more personal relationship, but can only do so much as the higher up individuals do not seem to help.
Pros
Flexible work schedule
Cons
Low salary, no room for career advancement

Great place to start and gain experience
Case Worker (Former Employee) –  Richmond, IN 47374March 12, 2018
I enjoyed my job at Meridian due to it being my first experience as a case manager however this is not a long term job. I worked for them for three years and never made more than what I started out making. I had a high case load and difficult clients and during the change in supervisors there was no guidance and support with clients.
Pros
experiance
Cons
lack of clinical guidance and support from management

Do not work here.
Behavioral Clinician (Current Employee) –  Anderson, INMarch 5, 2018
Awful! The company doesn't care about clients or employees. They only care about the money they can make, holding BCs up to unreasonable standards including reaching 100% productivity every week or you will be written up. Do not work here if you value yourself, you want to move up within a company, and/or really want to help others.

Clinician (Current Employee) –  Mishawaka, INFebruary 26, 2018
There’s no room for advancement. The management doesn’t treat employees like they are valued and self care is extremely difficult with the productivity standards. Management doesn’t value the opinion of their staff and feel as though they are better than them, and treat them as such. The environment has gotten more hostile and difficult to work in.
Cons
Hardly any breaks due to productivity

Adding more to the job and does not offer any raises. Behavioral Clinicians have high turn over rate. You have to use PTO when sick and flexible schedule is based on family availability.

Great colleagues
THERAPIST (Current Employee) –  Waterford, MIFebruary 5, 2018
This a fast paced environment. Although, there are helpful colleagues and management. There are benefits (medical, dental, vision, life insurance) with a portion paid by the employee. The company pays for required trainings.
Pros
Great collegues and management
Cons
Depending on the shift worked, you do not get holiday pay without having to use personal time to get the day paid.

Great Benefits
Behavioral Clinician (Current Employee) –  IndianaJanuary 17, 2018
The benefits are great through Meridian. 401k with company match, great health insurance. My particular manager is awesome. I just feel there is not much advancement opportunities within the company and the pay is lower than I would like. It is a nonprofit, so the pay is understandable.
Pros
Great Benefits, job flexibility
Cons
Pay
