    Horrible place to work - Miami location

    (Current Employee)
    Miami, FL

    ProsFree coffee, People share nicely

    ConsYou 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 Senior ManagementReplace all managers here!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Overall solid seeming company, some apparent frictions between management and engineering staff

    Engineering Assistant (Current Employee)
    Corona, CA

    Pros-Good place for someone with a solid understanding of high-level control theory to use their skills
    -Strong camraderie among staff
    -Good support for new employees

    Cons-Disagreement on engineering process between engineers and management
    -Seemed like habitual overtime was an expected occurrence
    -Corona location is a tough commute
    -If working on defense industry applications is a problem you may want to consider a different place

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Bait and switch

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

    ConsI 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 Senior ManagementYou 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great benefits... Poor Management!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat benefits and a mostly friendly atmosphere.

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementUse the talent that already exists! Get the most out of your own employees. Learn what we do.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Stable and profitable company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsMeggitt is a profitable, growing company that is not as well-known in terms of name recognition in the industry as some competitors...but they deserve to be acknowledged as an industry leader.

    ConsThe senior leaders are a bit too wrapped up in the hierarchical structure (i.e. chain of command) with a little too much flowing from the 'top down', and not enough opportunity to share ideas upward.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRaises should be merit increases, based on performance - not cost of living increases

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
