    Technical Specialist

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Troy, MI

    ProsReasonable environment, good people, not a bad place to work on the whole. Good facilities for the most part. Needs some updating though.

    ConsIngrained culture, not really open to ideas for new opportunities in markets. Business infrastructure need modernized and streamlining. Management need to make better use of available data.

    Advice to Senior ManagementExpand your business to include more systems. The investment is minimal and the value to your customers is substantial. For example: Steer axles... offer more than just the axle, offer the full steering system, integrated into the customer's vehicle.

    Great People to work with who are very talented and good at what they do for a living!

    Manager (Former Employee)
    Troy, MI

    ProsSuperb engineering talent coupled with excellent business managers who understand their client's needs and anticipate where the trucking industry is going. Nobody is resting on their laurels.

    ConsThe company has a very long and strong history that can hinder development times. Better to be safe than sorry is "safe", but opportunities today only last a short while and the early bird catches the worm!! Nothing that talent and zeal of the employees cannot overcome!!

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey've got ready, aim down pat! Just need to pull the trigger a little more often...

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

    This OR That

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Florence, KY

    ProsThere are some great people at Meritor! Employees who are willing to go the extra mile to achieve the company's goals.

    The company has great potential and the recent change in upper management may be a big boost.

    ConsBureaucratic Nightmare: Not the most efficient methods of doing things. Often when employees suggest (department dependent) more efficient methods of achieving goals (for example via the use of technology) there is little support.

    Salary can be an issue. If you start at the company at the lower range of your grade, you are likely to remain at the low end.

    HR Red Tape (needing this degree or that) prevents existing and tenured employees from advancing although they have demonstrated skills and proven experience.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYour employees are your experts. Listen to them. Trust them. Reward their success and forgive (some) of their mistakes.

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

    An organization still in search of it's true identity...

    (Current Employee)
    Troy, MI

    ProsGreat benefits
    Some very strong technical talent

    ConsLack of overall respect for the common employee.
    Everything is an "emergency", lack of prioritization.
    Inability to make strategic decisions and then when decisions are made, always seeming to 2nd guess them.
    Consistant turnover at all levels, especially at the higher ranks. Very disconcerting.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWith our previous CEO no longer with us, the board needs to choose very wisely in deterimining our next top leader. Look from outside, not from within. Recently announced 3 year strategic plan is a step in the right direction but don't lose sight of the employees.

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

    Strong team, needs long-term focus

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Pros- very lean and flexible
    - excellent learning opportunities; slightly understaffed, which provides remaining workforce with enormous potential to engage in new projects and take on more responsibilities
    - manager buy-in to developing talent

    Cons- turnover is a big issue, especially in retaining company-specific knowledge
    - long-term focus seems to be lacking, but senior management has acknowledged the lack of that and is taking steps to address it

    Advice to Senior Managementretention and stability are welcome

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Good place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe people are hard working, dedicated, loyal. Products are some of the safest in the market. Customer service is best in class.

    ConsChange is constant. Moral is sometimes difficult to maintain during down turns as well as up turns.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStabilize the senior management team. Get them focused and working together instead of against each other.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
