Support from management

The management team basically work for themselves and over inflated checks. If THEY want something a certain way, no matter WHAT the customer says, nothing will happen. So many issues with this.

Teamwork

One of the few highlights is that employees tend to work VERY well together. We're all miserable and I guess misery loves company.

Gender Equality

Most of the team leaders are female or minority.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Lots of long term employees.

Career Development

Small company equals very little room for growth. There are a lot of "middle management" positions, but since there's very little to no turnover within upper-level management, Mergent is essentially a place for young people to get "real world" experience before getting a "real" job.

Overall compensation for your work

We have not had pay raises nor cost of living raises since 2008. Starting pay is average to below average for the industry and the 401K match was stopped in 2009. All in all, no good.

Office / Work Environment

Physical working conditions are fine: fairly new building, new computers, in-house gym, etc... However, the poor benefits and low pay lead to bad morale.

Company Image

Mergent has a poor internal image, but an ok external image.

Job Security

Because of the low pay and poor benefits, you can basically do whatever you want and they will keep you because they have a hard time keeping good employees.

Inclusive / Diverse

Mergent is very diverse, featuring people from different countries, ethnicities, religions, etc...

Suggestions for improvement

  • Too many to mention, but I will give 2 suggestions: take better care of your employees and listen to the needs of your customers better

What I like about the company

Flexible hours

What I dislike about the company

Low pay, no 401K match and managers that seem to be more interested in lining their pockets than taking care of their employees.
