    Pros

    This company was awesome to work for. Too bad it was only a temp position.

    Pros

    Meggitt 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.

    Cons

    The 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 Management

    Raises should be merit increases, based on performance - not cost of living increases


  9. Great company

    Pros

    Engaging people, good range of products, constantly looking to better them selves. People I dealt with were friendly and helped me to develop.

    Cons

    Was a big commute for me, but that shouldn't effect anyone else. The offices could be located in a better area with more going on

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work that you are currently doing at Meggit. I htink the company is in a strong position moving forward.

    Pros

    Excellent working atmosphere, great relationships, nothing bad to say. I have enjoyed every minute of it and will miss the people I've come to regard as friends. Even my manager, yes brilliant man to work for.

    Cons

    After working as a temp for 14 months, making massive improvements I was asked to leave. I fully understand the reasons given. I asked for training and was refused so no prospects for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Too many people do not care for what they do. No morale equals no output. If you want the best, employ the best instead of letting them go. Invest in the hard workers and they will invest in you. Good luck every one, best wishes to all!!
