    I have been working at Meggitt

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Replace all managers here!

    I have been working at Meggitt full-time

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I have been working at Meggitt for more than 3 years

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Less Talk, more walk.

    I have been working at Meggitt full-time for more than 5 years

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Great benefits and a mostly friendly atmosphere.

    Upper Management doesn't seem to be able to fix problems. They implement processes to fix processes which never fix anything.

    Use the talent that already exists! Get the most out of your own employees. Learn what we do.
