    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stabilize the senior management team. Get them focused and working together instead of against each other.

    Good pay and benefits.... But not pay for performance

    Always short staffed... No long term incentive. Only care about this qtr or year... No long term investment in the businesses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within... Recognize employees who give consistent positive results... Implement a long term incentive.. It will help with turnover...

    I have been working at Meritor full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Some of the best and brightest people I have every worked with. A very nice headquarters building with every facility required to perform your job. Some very hard working and dedicated managers.

    Cons

    A brutal layoff Jan2013 with no forewarning to employees. A tap on the shoulder, off to personel and out the door. Meritor is very dependent of government spending and the boat has been sinking for awhile. They could not compete in automotive and dropped that customer base. With technology that is 20 years old, they have no technological expertise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seek out new attractive markets. Start investing in R & D. When layoffs are necessary, do them in a more humanitarian way.
