    Pros

    Good people and salary, A very diverse culture

    Cons

    Poor management, No work life balance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Poor Local Management. Quit using the Peter's Principle to promote. Investigate for the root cause of issues rather than making assumptions and going of skewed facts.

    I have been working at Meritor full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good paying company. Rewards those that excel. You control your destiny. Company is working toward building a stronger upper management.

    Cons

    Lack of long term strategy. Management - eyes are bigger than their stomach. No development for employees. As you move up the chain, you will be expected to work many long hours - 50 to 60+. As times have gotten tougher, the politics have increased exponentially the past couple of years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your biggest asset to grow the company - your employees.

    I worked at Meritor as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Reasonable environment, good people, not a bad place to work on the whole. Good facilities for the most part. Needs some updating though.

    Cons

    Ingrained culture, not really open to ideas for new opportunities in markets. Business infrastructure need modernized and streamlining. Management need to make better use of available data.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Expand your business to include more systems. The investment is minimal and the value to your customers is substantial. For example: Steer axles... offer more than just the axle, offer the full steering system, integrated into the customer's vehicle.

    I worked at Meritor full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are some great people at Meritor! Employees who are willing to go the extra mile to achieve the company's goals.

    The company has great potential and the recent change in upper management may be a big boost.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic Nightmare: Not the most efficient methods of doing things. Often when employees suggest (department dependent) more efficient methods of achieving goals (for example via the use of technology) there is little support.

    Salary can be an issue. If you start at the company at the lower range of your grade, you are likely to remain at the low end.

    HR Red Tape (needing this degree or that) prevents existing and tenured employees from advancing although they have demonstrated skills and proven experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your employees are your experts. Listen to them. Trust them. Reward their success and forgive (some) of their mistakes.
