    I worked at Moog full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Open work concept. Ability to work out of the box and begin with the end in mind. You are an employee that can create your own work assignments with general structure and details. You feel like you have ownership in the business.

    Cons

    Difficulty in your attempt to meet the needs of your supervisor. You must manage your managers to make sure you are on the same page.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Check your pulse with your coworkers bimonthly.

    I have been working at Moog as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The salary is good and that's it.

    Cons

    They preach a culture of "mutual trust and respect" but that couldn't be farther from the truth. What you know is much less important than who you know and how much butt you're willing to kiss. If you are a good worker who has enough integrity to not want to play the Moog game you will never advance. Management is extremely weak and spineless. They are more concerned about how many notches that they can put in their belt than they are with improving things.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire and promote people based on merit. Practice the "Moog culture" that you preach. Have enough integrity to LEAD and not find the need to have your ego stroked.

    Pros

    Training was highly effective.
    The company gave you the opportunity to grow as assignments were developed by your manager and your self.
    You had ownership into your career.

    Cons

    You must manage your manager to make sure you are on the same page every month to avoid not being focused on the goals as developed between you and your work groups.

    I worked at Moog full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great environment. Decent pay. Moog is good place to hone skills before moving on. Co-workers are always ready to give a helping hand whenever needed.

    Cons

    Cost of living increases are very poor. Moving jobs to India, to reduce salaries, is a very high priority. Upper management decisions seem to be based on personal agendas without regard to short or long term consequences. The "Moog culture" is so free form that is has little or no meaning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do more than just listen to those in non-management positions and try to bring a level of humanity back to the business. Money and profits are not everything.

    I worked at Moog full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Benefits are good, and the ability to pursue personal growth is great if people were more aware of the option.

    Cons

    Moog does not allow tele-commute, nor does it offer 4/10 with alternating days off. Moog should offer more than the 3% annual raise, considering the cost of living is very expensive in Southern California.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focusing on metrics stagnates Moog's potential growth nationally and abroad.

    I worked at Moog as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Quit and Found a better job
    Great dress code. They can dress like civilians instead of wearing long dresses with pointed cone head made out of white bed linen

    Cons

    Walking in the door. Equal employment opportunities is for white males only. All minorities should stay away. You will not be hired. I can count the minorities on one hand. Moog looks good on the outside only but once you walk in the doors you can see the racism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire minorities!!!!!

    I worked at Moog

    Pros

    The only positive here is I dodged a bullet if this company lack of basic professional courtesy is indicative of how they run things.

    Cons

    Just a heads up to anyone interviewing for this company. Was given a interview for a open position at the Torrance Facility. I was employed at the time with another company for ten years performing the same duties that MOOG requested in their Ad. Thought I would advance my career so I accepted the interview and took a half day off from work. The interview consisted of 5 interviewers and lasted 4 hours. Really it lasted a total of 5 hours since they forgot about my interview appointment and I had to wait around for a hour for people to become available. I thought it went well and was told I would get a response back. Two weeks passed and not a single word from MOOG either way about the interview, the interview was 2mths ago btw. Now I have no problem being told I was not a fit for the position, what I have a problem with is investing so much of my time being 5 hours and half a day pay and not hearing any word from MOOG about the outcome. If someone physically takes the time to interview for you it's not asking much for him/her to hear back from you. If this is a indication of how they treat people I dodged a bullet with this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to treat people with respect and learn some basic human courtesy.
