    I have been working at Moog as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Everyone you work with is friendly and helpful, especially as an entry-level engineer. The culture is great, and its a great place to start a career.

    Cons

    Terrible management on all levels. Company has recently starting focusing way too much on short-term investor approval, rather than long term company health.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't hire the first intern you think of when a rec comes along, hire someone deserving of the position.

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

    Pros

    The company has a very laid back culture that for the most part allows you to choose your hours and to some degree what you work on within your group. Management is fair, accessible and open to new ideas. Your coworkers will be nice and helpful, if not overly friendly.

    Cons

    You will receive very little direction. There is no training process and it is unclear who should be assigning you work or even what are potential things you could work on. There is more nonengineering tasks than engineering tasks in engineering here; however I believe that is fairly common in aerospace due to the regulatory nature of the work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your employees. It is great that people have the freedom to work how and on what they want. However, if they don't know what needs done or how to do anything they will get discouraged and be unproductive. People who have limited experience should be assigned projects with a more senior employee to guide them or at least answer questions when they have them. Just leaving new employees to find work when they don't know any of their coworkers, where anything is, or how anything is done limits productivity. Especially in a company that relies heavily on word of month and historical knowledge.

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are really good; could use a little more vacation time for the people who DON'T have 10 plus years! Very good work/life balance. Most people are very friendly.

    Cons

    There is no real supervision or accountability. I wish the bosses knew some of the stuff that goes on, on a daily basis. Trying really hard to find another job, but it's hard to beat what they have to offer in pay and benefits.

    I worked at Moog full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I joined Moog India as a fresher. Moog provided me a very challenging opportunities. The responsibilities given to me was really appreciable. The policy of "TRUST ON EMPLOYEES" was followed strongly which is really great. The culture was great and excellent. My mentors were great and learned so much from them. The employees were taken care very well. They are flexible and give much freedom for the employees to work efficiently.

    Cons

    Training s are not well organised.

    Expanded my view of the aviation industry as a world-wide, tightly coupled one.

    I worked at Moog full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Moog highly values their talent and will pay top-dollar to obtain it. Projects are leading edge technology for the industry and challenging because of the long-term effects (10+ years) that the short-term (~ 3 yr) development projects have. Benefits are exemplary.

    Cons

    Leadershiop is a mix of old and new. Aircraft Group leadership was promoted from within and learned to manage when the Engineering department was less than 200 heads and was focused on the development of components/line replaceable units. The Aircraft group has grown to ~800 engineers in multiple countries and their main product is now flight control systems

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decide what you want to be and be that.

    Get out more and understand the issues that are truly plaguing the company. Stop hiring useless office employees and get more of the hands on workers.

    Pros

    Moog is a true America company. They have an amazing organization and truly take care of their employees. The facilities are well equipped not resource starved.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges are the Buffalo culture. The general buffalo traffic is not great. East Aurora if wonderful though so you may not need to go to Buffalo often.

    Great people to work with and decent benefits.

    Cons

    Upper level management is disconnected from "real" work and expectations are unreasonable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend some more time with the people that actually do the work so that expectations will be more reasonable.

    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.
