    I have been working at Meritor full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great benefits
    Some very strong technical talent

    Cons

    Lack of overall respect for the common employee.
    Everything is an "emergency", lack of prioritization.
    Inability to make strategic decisions and then when decisions are made, always seeming to 2nd guess them.
    Consistant turnover at all levels, especially at the higher ranks. Very disconcerting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With our previous CEO no longer with us, the board needs to choose very wisely in deterimining our next top leader. Look from outside, not from within. Recently announced 3 year strategic plan is a step in the right direction but don't lose sight of the employees.

    Too dependent of the overspending of the Government

    I have been working at Meritor full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Some of the best and brightest people I have every worked with. A very nice headquarters building with every facility required to perform your job. Some very hard working and dedicated managers.

    Cons

    A brutal layoff Jan2013 with no forewarning to employees. A tap on the shoulder, off to personel and out the door. Meritor is very dependent of government spending and the boat has been sinking for awhile. They could not compete in automotive and dropped that customer base. With technology that is 20 years old, they have no technological expertise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seek out new attractive markets. Start investing in R & D. When layoffs are necessary, do them in a more humanitarian way.
