    I have been working at Meritor full-time

    Pros

    The management team is pushing down to turn the business around in Aftermarket business unit.

    Cons

    Aftermarket future is uncertain. Workload is very high and feel always behind. Overloaded work load is a common theme in the Aftermarket business unit. No work-life balance. Lack of team spirit. Individual agenda seems to take place over team agenda. The plant associates are considered step child by the corporate management team. Too many finance directors left the company within a year which give bad signal to others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put people first before your business goals. People are the one who make differences in your organization and drive and achieve business goals. Allow people to take vacation, maintain a work life balance just like you do at the corporation. Take care if your people first!

    I have been working at Meritor full-time (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.

    I have been working at Meritor full-time (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.
