Productive and fun workplace
Research Assistant, Psychometric Rater (Former Employee) –  Brooksville, FLJuly 16, 2018
I learned a lot from the original owners of the company before it was sold. The company was run very well and employees were treated very well. That all changed when the company was sold. New management had no loyalty to existing employees that helped make the company what it was. My days were spent administering tests to study participants and building relationships with both patients and family members. The hardest part was the backstabbing that was allowed to happen after the company changed hands. We were no longer people just employees.

Nothing good
Assistant Site Business Development Specialist (Former Employee) –  Tampa, FLMay 2, 2018
I got laid off as soon as the new owners came in. They press you really hard to get the work done which is a good thing but as soon as something bad happens the manager blames everything on you even though it may not even be your fault.
Pros
Free lunches
Cons
Short breaks and long days.

Room for advancement within the research center.
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) –  Saint Petersburg, FLMarch 31, 2018
Meridien Research was an amazing place to work. The management team was always very proactive with assignments. The facility itself was very close to my home and it was a very successful donation center. The laboratory was very well stocked with the latest technology. The management staff is very knowledgeable and always wiling to offer help to the associates that requested it. The salary was higher than the average for a Laboratory Coordinator. The training program is second to none. The corporate trainers are always available to assist in any way that they can.
Pros
High pay ranges, Easy going management
Cons
Over night random testing. Communications with nurses and lab.

Lack of professionalism, favoritism, no direction
Former member (Former Employee) –  Bradenton, FLDecember 29, 2017
This could be a good company if there was adequate training, clear expectations, a non bias manager, overhaul at corporate level, and fair treatment to employees. Management needs to listen and value the input and ideas of employees since we are the ones who make the company successful.
Pros
Benefits and pay
Cons
No respect and favoritism

Sad
CRC (Former Employee) –  Bradenton, FLDecember 22, 2017
Unfortunately upper management does not care about employees. Treats everyone like a replaceable entity. Site managers are great but have no opinion or ability to change anything. Stressful doesn’t even touch on how the moral is at Meridien. Very sad cause it could be a great place.
Pros
Nice building.
Cons
Moral, treatment of employees

Clinical Research Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Brooksville, FLNovember 11, 2017
If you keep your head down and do you work then you'll be fine. But it's not a place for advancement at all. The supervisors don't listen to the people actually doing the work. Therefore turnover is extremely high.
Pros
Pay
Cons
Everything else

Official response from Meridien Research

There is a new Site Director and PI/Doctor at that location since the beginning of 2018. The facility has also been moved to a new and modern medical complex at 120 Medical Blvd in Spring Hill.
