    I have been working at Meritor full-time (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.

    I worked at Meritor

    Pros

    Meritor has great people and some really interesting project work. Learning experiences will come from hands on project work. Co workers are all highly skilled.

    Cons

    There is no balance between work and home a usual week is 70 or more hours due to lack of administrative support and analyst roles. Quality issues are creating ongoing challenges and it appears that the new product pipeline is weak. The recent departures by several senior leaders without a view to the larger strategic plan is a concern. Formal training and mentoring is lacking as managers are stretched too thin and financial resources are limited.

    Pros

    Company very good at communication. Communication meetings held montly after earnings review phone call. Plans of company described and questions answered.

    Cons

    see wall street investment firm reviews. Among the complaints of outside evaluaters is that Meritor is a "Goldylocks" company, the market can not be too hot or too cold.
