    Pros

    A friendly working environment. You would have promotion opportunity if you work hard. They treat employee well. Provide good quality lunch with reasonable price for Torrance CA location.

    Cons

    The pay is less than industry average. I can not recall any other cons for Moog (Torrance) other than that.

    Advice to Management

    Employee work hard, so the company makes good money. Company should reward the employee with raise, bonus etc.

  3. Moog is OK as a place of employment; not clearly above the rest in the industry, but certainly not one of the worst.

    Pros

    Good benefits, with decent choice of health care plans. Working in a project team environment allows one to form good bonds with a team of people.

    Cons

    Top management seems to be in a transition phase, so rating the company culture is difficult. Training for new assignments could use work. Being in the defense industry, Moog is subject to the ebb and flow of Government funding.

    Pros

    You're building stuff that goes into space! Benefits (health insurance) is about the best I've seen for the lowest cost to the employee. Compensation is pretty good.

    Cons

    Frequent reductions in force. High pressure environment. Clubby top management. Hard to break into long-established cliques among staff.

    Advice to Management

    Training / on-boarding for new hires - it's too "sink or swim." Consider what can be done to improve stability. Don't just talk the talk about Moog culture--walk the walk.

    Pros

    Vaction time, holidays and sick days. Basically any time im not working

    Cons

    Unprofessional, lack of people skills and immature supervisors and upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring babies to run the company. Learn how to treat all people fair by making your supervisors take a people skill class

    Pros

    People there are general friendly and respectful to each other and are willing to help out when needed. This place will be a great place to learn about aerospace manufacturing as it is vertically integrated in terms of their in house manufacturing capabilities.

    Cons

    It could be hard at the time for old long term employees to integrate with newcomers, there are gaps in synchronizing and passing down corporate procedures and policies between its NY headquarter. Work-life balance is ok since it doesn't offer alternate work schedule like 9/80. Personal growth can be hard if you are not favored by old managers whom have been there for a long time.

    Advice to Management

    Company policies and procedures are not consistent throughout different departments and other divisions. There are tensions between NY headquarter and its satellite divisions.

    Pros

    As an Intern I had:
    Project Responsibilities
    Access to engineering facilities
    Real and meaningful work

    I felt welcome, everyone was very helpful and friendly. I never felt afraid to ask questions and was in fact encouraged to do so. I was on a first name basis with everyone, including the head engineer, which was fantastic

    Cons

    The systems are dated (although they are revamping them) and resources could be difficult to work with.
    Southern California problems (traffic, locals, etc..)

  11. Good people, Good Culture, Good product, but going in poor direction

    Pros

    the people are fantastic, they have a great culture, and i enjoyed going to work every day. the products are exciting and cool and the experience you gain is invaluable. there is a wide variety of challenging problems that you are exposed to across multiple disciplines. the benefit package is hard to beat.

    Cons

    Moog has always been built upon their culture and how great it is to work there. however, over the last 5-6 years i had noticed some changes that are straying away from the core values that they held for so many years. it can most likely be attributed to the change of management and the new CEO philosophy. also pay slightly lower base salaries than most. hard to be promoted/ advance.

    Advice to Management

    reconnect with the core culture that the company was founded upon. stop selling false promises.
