    I worked at Meggitt full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Meggitt performs well against its competitors, many are much larger than Meggitt. The name is well known and respected within the markets of engagement. Competitive salary and benefits with good learning opportunities. Very active in continuous improvement and customer focused.

    Cons

    Thought the company values are good, senior management can struggle at times to hear the good ideas from within the teams.
    If you struggle in a dynamic matrix environment consider how you would adapt before jumping in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create opportunities, forums and strong processes for allowing new ideas to develop from within.

    I have been working at Meggitt

    Pros

    Good culture and great learning opportunity. Lots of opportunities to move within the company. Pleasant and condusive working environment with nice colleagues

    Cons

    Not much focus on employees' welfare. Not much effort in retaining good employees. No proper policy and process workflow which results in unclear job scope of individuals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on employee welfare, Have a scheme that rewards good employee occasionally e.g. can come up with cash vouchers for some employees who did well e.g. exceeded sales forecast, employees who come up with an improvement and lead the project and eventually successfully launch it. Organise company retreat / dnd. This will increase employees' morale and thus they would be more willing to do more than what they are expected in a job.
