    I have been working at Meggitt full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great products, good benefits, fair pay

    Cons

    Always in crisis mode. Upper Management does not know what work-life balance means and don't seem to care about employees. Endless overtime, working over holidays, etc. Operations management is a revolving door. QEs, ME's, Buyers, Planners, Warehouse are all overwhelmed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of dead wood and hire more support people. Get new management at Division Level.

    I worked at Meggitt

    Pros

    The benefits are about the only good thing I can think of although there are some good people that work there.

    Cons

    Poor management, watch your back trust no one if you are smart. It does not pay to be smarter than your boss.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some department managers are rewarded not for what they know or do, but more for who they know and what they do, t do. They can out right lie to cover their own short comings with job knowledge, to make another worker look bad because they are smarter and more knowledgeable.

    I have been working at Meggitt (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There's a Holiday shutdown between Christmas and New Years, benefits are decent

    Cons

    Working LEAN doesn't mean you work with 2/3s of the staff you need to get the job done - unless the processes in place, which they don't.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less Talk, more walk.

    Horrible place to work - Miami location

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Miami, FL
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Miami, FL

    I have been working at Meggitt

    Pros

    Free coffee, People share nicely

    Cons

    You will be required to work at a moments notice overtime and on your days off (weekends)
    If you get approved vacation they will disapprove last minute so don't urchase airline tickets or non-refundable tickets.
    The cubes are very small. They won't purchase desk chairs that are comfortable, current seats are very old and uncomfortable. Management staff like to embarrass you in front of others by talking down to you loudly.
    HR dept cannot be trusted, nothing is kept confidential.
    Horrible place to work, a lot of turnover here in Miami

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace all managers here!
