    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.

    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.
