    Good company to work for with a good future.

    Customer Account Manager (Former Employee)
    Montreal, QC (Canada)

    ProsMeggitt performs well against its competitors, many are much larger than Meggitt. The name is well known and respected within the markets of engagement. Competitive salary and benefits with good learning opportunities. Very active in continuous improvement and customer focused.

    ConsThought the company values are good, senior management can struggle at times to hear the good ideas from within the teams.
    If you struggle in a dynamic matrix environment consider how you would adapt before jumping in.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCreate opportunities, forums and strong processes for allowing new ideas to develop from within.

    Great benefits... Poor Management!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat benefits and a mostly friendly atmosphere.

    ConsUpper Management doesn't seem to be able to fix problems. They implement processes to fix processes which never fix anything.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUse the talent that already exists! Get the most out of your own employees. Learn what we do.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Stable and profitable company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsMeggitt is a profitable, growing company that is not as well-known in terms of name recognition in the industry as some competitors...but they deserve to be acknowledged as an industry leader.

    ConsThe senior leaders are a bit too wrapped up in the hierarchical structure (i.e. chain of command) with a little too much flowing from the 'top down', and not enough opportunity to share ideas upward.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRaises should be merit increases, based on performance - not cost of living increases

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood culture and great learning opportunity. Lots of opportunities to move within the company. Pleasant and condusive working environment with nice colleagues

    ConsNot much focus on employees' welfare. Not much effort in retaining good employees. No proper policy and process workflow which results in unclear job scope of individuals.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus more on employee welfare, Have a scheme that rewards good employee occasionally e.g. can come up with cash vouchers for some employees who did well e.g. exceeded sales forecast, employees who come up with an improvement and lead the project and eventually successfully launch it. Organise company retreat / dnd. This will increase employees' morale and thus they would be more willing to do more than what they are expected in a job.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
