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

    Pros

    Good people for the most part

    Cons

    There is no work-life balance. Cut-backs may save money but needs to add the staffing in order for the employee to be effective. You are on-call 24/7. People are stretched too thin and management is slow to react except when things don't go their way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice--Start looking to root causes. Management is too quick to jump to conclusions without facts. You have to be a member of the good "ole boys club" in order to be promoted. .Finger pointing is management's way of not accepting responsibility to upper management. .

    Procurement Overview

    Current Employee - Intern in Troy, MI

    I have been working at Meritor part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Well Organized, great leadership, vision and plan to execute are only a few things that come to mind when thinking about my experience at Meritor working in Procurement (Or formally known as Purchasing).

    Cons

    The environment is VERY cut throat, but that can be expected om the realm of Procurement. Everyone seems to have a very large work load, and is expected to deliver 100% of the time regardless of the situation.

    I worked at Meritor as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Compensation was significant for an internship, I felt like the work I was contributing was valuable and teaching me a good deal.

    Cons

    The company culture was not one I enjoyed. Being a college student, I felt that I was consistently being talked down to. I felt like my supervisor was continually condescending me.

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

    Pros

    Great employees! Strong products in heavy duty automotive, industrial and military applications. Good financial performance is shared with employees through annual bonus targets. Company holidays are mostly standard for automotive (which is much better than many industries).

    Cons

    Not a lot of upward mobility. One must network and make their own opportunities. Some of the more progressive policies (flexible work hours, remote work options, et cetera) have been minimized/discontinued. Staffing trends in the last couple of years have focused on acquiring younger less expensive resources.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice is to understand what the employees are able to contribute and to setup policies to utilize that talent. Recognize employees and build a culture where truly the employee is the most important asset.

    Pros

    Incredible team-oriented people devoted to meeting the program and company goals. Management listens to staff and provides excellent leadership in company direction and how to achieve the common goals.

    Cons

    Large work load which leads to difficulty in managing work/life balance and provides several opportunities for stress development. Conversely, this presents several opportunities to shine.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider developing more core competencies to enable less reliance on the supply base

    I have been working at Meritor full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Well developed co-op program, there are 40+ of us in the building. I am a college student. The pay is decent and the experience is raw. Managers are very understanding of my student status and are willing to work around my class schedule.

    Cons

    I dont really have much bad to say, I have only been here for 3 months. Sometimes managment doesn't take my ideas seriously, but it's somewhat understandable due to my position and lack of experience in the industry.

    Pros

    Working colleagues were passionate as well as highly professional

    Cons

    Significant turn over due to changing economic product strategies led to promotions as well as departures.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Eliminate a rolling five year strategy. It needs to be a fixed plan based on achieving specific metrics
