Merit has great people with a really strong collaborative environment. Merit challenges you to achieve your best, no two days are the same and you will never be bored. A great place to work!

Things to improve

Out of their control, but the traffic can be a pain in Parkmore, although we are located closest to the exit so we can't complain!


Please describe the problem with this review.

I started working at Merit as a temporary file clerk. I was so impressed with the company and the working environment that I hired on permanently. I can honestly say I wouldn't want to work anywhere other than Merit. Our company has grown over the years, and it has been reassuring to know that, through the ups and downs, our CEO Fred Lampropoulos truly cares about his employees.

I came to work for Merit right out of college in 2004. Merit has been instrumental in my personal growth and advancement as a professional. I am surrounded by many talented individuals who are willing to share their knowledge and expertise with me on a daily basis. I also enjoy the people that I work with; the culture here is very much like “family”. We are all committed to the values and vision of this great company, and I am proud to be a part of it.
