    Pros

    Moog has lots of great benefits and offers things like: Tuition reimbursement Earned vacation time Personal holiday Technology

    Cons

    Opportunities for advancement can be limited as there is great bias in the selection of employees and new hires. Sometimes the vision of management is unclear No real interaction with senior management

    Focus more on the talents and abilities of current employees and look to improve their situations at Moog. Be more active and outgoing to employees to foster a sense of togetherness and shared goals.

    I worked at Moog full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The people. Most truly do what they can to follow directions and perform to expectations that are sporadic at best. Pay and benefits are great.

    Cons

    Changes in ownership changed the focus and started a decent backwards to old style management directions. After new management was in place most older employees have been released to make way for the changes that were suppose to improve the site's performance. Now outsourcing has become the new solution, workloads on managers have been doubled, and the employees are left wondering how long they can have jobs there.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to the Moog culture. This site was home grown and it truly was a family environment before the current site leadership team took over, now people are treated like numbers on a sheet. Better details on expectations, listening to the employees, and all the the other things Bill Moog thought was so important needs to be re-discovered and implemented.

    I have been working at Moog part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The work environment is pretty laid-back, the people are very nice, the work itself is interesting (mostly related to industrial engineering), the schedule is very flexible, and the pay is good.

    Cons

    It's a lot of busywork, but you don't need a bachelor's degree, so it's pretty normal for the job it is.

    I worked at Moog full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The benefit package is very good. It includes unlimited sick time, 2 weeks vacation for the first four years. In the 5th year, you get an additional 35 days. Most of the people are very nice and easy to work with.

    Cons

    Despite having corporate values of "Do the right thing" and "Competence is king", there is very little accountability. If someone in a mid to upper leadership role doesn't want to participate in a corporate program, they can refuse and there are no consequences. The corporate headquarters site is wide open. None of the buildings are locked; employees don't have ID badges; and there is no security. Good thing it's located in the middle of a rural area.

    Advice to Management

    Hold people accountable for complying with corporate mandates and expectations. Someday the federal government or one of the larger customers are going to show up and demand changes. Paying the piper will prove to be very expensive.

    Pros

    Attractive balance of interesting work, flexible time, and pay. Its a great place to begin a career and learn the trade with a wide range of experience

    Cons

    Lots of confusion in corporate direction or mission leading to low morale. Limited upward mobility leads to stagnation. Changing business environment that the company does not seem willing to accept or adapt.

    Advice to Management

    Identify a purpose that will inspire your staff and fit within the new paradigm. This will raise moral and retain your workforce.
