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

    Pros

    Great coworkers, bosses, atmosphere and attitudes. Hard work is appreciated and rewarded. I admittedly started in the midst of some health and personal problems, and was given dozens of chances to redeem myself. My former employer and employees would have torn me apart, but the "moogers" helped me rebuild my confidence in my skills, and my new position. I am and always will be grateful. Pay and bennies are better than I've ever received doesn't hurt either.

    Cons

    Only one I personally have is I'm used to doing multiple operations, and seeing my work from start to finish, as I now am doing finishing work as a rule. Lot of pressure if I make a mistake, but bosses aren't looking to pin blame, or embarrass you, unlike my former employer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    From what I've read on this site, maybe acknowledgement of the lesser skilled positions employees, although I am unaware of it's existence.

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are good.

    Cons

    The Moog culture is unique and may have worked at one time, but it doesn't any more. It is open to wide spread abuse and there are no controls in place to protect other employees from those who abuse it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop expecting all people to do the right thing. Not everyone thinks that way and the ones who abuse this hurt the ones who try to do the right thing.

    I worked at Moog full-time (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.

    Current Employee - Assembler/Technician in East Aurora, NY

    I have been working at Moog as a contractor (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.

    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.

    Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Salt Lake City, UT

    I worked at Moog full-time (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.

    Great peers and boss. Really in tune with what is happening in the factory.

    A little boring. Would be better if there was more work to be spread around. Certain people just good off most of the day...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. They are doing all that they can for he employees and for additional work.
