    Pros

    Awesome coworkers and flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    Upper management will kill your site because they cannot be bothered to come to the site and listen to the engineers. Additionally, while they are killing your site they will lie to the employees to cover up their intent.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying and start communicating with your engineers.

    Pros

    The company match for the 401K is good.

    Cons

    The executive leadership is so weak that the company is becoming more and more unprofitable. They keep laying off people in order to make the bottom line look good, when what they really need a thorough house cleaning at the top levels. The good people are over worked and looking to get out, while those who are incapable of making a contribution continue to get paid well for doing next to nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Things are not getting better. Instead of laying off people who actually perform, you should be looking at pay cuts for yourselves in order to make the company profitable again.

    Pros

    decent pay, good benefits, 401k match, 100% vested, holiday shut down, that is it really...

    Cons

    always in cost cutting mode, even at the employee's expense (layoffs) they don't care, as long as they show they're making their numbers
    always, always, always in change and chaos mode, constant changes happening and shifting, in LEAN mode every day
    horrible leadership team, barely approachable
    people talk behind your back, so watch your back...cannot trust anyone here
    lack of growth, they promote "internal" but only if your part of leaderships' "favorite circle"

    Advice to Management

    retire, leave, move away, do something to stop the bleeding, because greed will come back to haunt you...

    Pros

    Free coffee, People share nicely

    Cons

    You will be required to work at a moments notice overtime and on your days off (weekends)
    If you get approved vacation they will disapprove last minute so don't urchase airline tickets or non-refundable tickets.
    The cubes are very small. They won't purchase desk chairs that are comfortable, current seats are very old and uncomfortable. Management staff like to embarrass you in front of others by talking down to you loudly.
    HR dept cannot be trusted, nothing is kept confidential.
    Horrible place to work, a lot of turnover here in Miami

    Advice to Management

    Replace all managers here!

    Pros

    The employees are caring folks who are absolutely overwhelmed with the work load.

    Cons

    I joined Meggitt based on a negotiated salary and bonus package. The only problem is Meggitt pays bonuses based on favoritism, rather than performance. I held up my end of the bargain by working two jobs; they didn't meet their financial obligation to me.

    Advice to Management

    You are far too Eurocentric and completely out of touch with your US employees. Setting impossible standards is not a way to motivate people. It is a way to guarantee high turn-over rates.

    Pros

    Great products, good benefits, fair pay

    Cons

    Always in crisis mode. Upper Management does not know what work-life balance means and don't seem to care about employees. Endless overtime, working over holidays, etc. Operations management is a revolving door. QEs, ME's, Buyers, Planners, Warehouse are all overwhelmed.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of dead wood and hire more support people. Get new management at Division Level.

    Pros

    There's a Holiday shutdown between Christmas and New Years, benefits are decent

    Cons

    Working LEAN doesn't mean you work with 2/3s of the staff you need to get the job done - unless the processes in place, which they don't.

    Advice to Management

    Less Talk, more walk.

    Pros

    Holidays can be taken at short notice and pretty much whenever, very friendly employees. Small office containing all departments means that it is easy to talk between departments and get problems resolved. good for personal growth prospects

    Cons

    management on the whole give poor direction meaning deadlines are missed, and projects are rushed. Can be stressful at times. Limited budget on IT and software. Not much focus on keeping employees happy/motivated.

    Advice to Management

    More investment into new offices and less penny pinching on tools required to streamline processes and improve workflow.
