    Pros

    Holidays can be taken at short notice and pretty much whenever, very friendly employees. Small office containing all departments means that it is easy to talk between departments and get problems resolved. good for personal growth prospects

    Cons

    management on the whole give poor direction meaning deadlines are missed, and projects are rushed. Can be stressful at times. Limited budget on IT and software. Not much focus on keeping employees happy/motivated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More investment into new offices and less penny pinching on tools required to streamline processes and improve workflow.

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

    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.

    Pros

    Great benefits and a mostly friendly atmosphere.

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

    Use the talent that already exists! Get the most out of your own employees. Learn what we do.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Meggitt full-time (more than a year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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