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

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

    Pros

    Meggitt 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.

    Cons

    Thought 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 ManagementAdvice

    Create opportunities, forums and strong processes for allowing new ideas to develop from within.
