Running wide open

Program Manager (Current Employee)
Troy, MI

I have been working at Meritor

ProsStructure of job progressions are not well defined; therefore, you can make lateral moves that you would not normally be able to make. Defense portion of the business is relatively stable. Recent restructuring appeared to be merit-based instead of salary based. High visibility to senior management for entry level job positions. Unfortunately, this stems from the fact that the company is so under-staffed.

ConsEverything, and I mean EVERYTHING, is a freakin emergency. There are no easily accessible tools to help program managers run programs. You make your own tools, which end up being as simple as to-do lists to stop the customer from calling the CEO. The entire staff of the company is constantly scrambling to keep up with their salesperson's promises. This leads to schedule slip, poor product quality, and firefighting galore. I may ask for my job title to be changed to firefighter. After all, I always wanted to be one when I grew up.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to adequately staff the portions of the business that make all of the money. Half the design time = double the engineers. Etc.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
