    I worked at Meggitt full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very stable and profitable company. Coworkers are a pleasure to work with, and I feel that the company overall has a direction moving forward. Pay was good, benefits and vacations were industry-standard.

    Cons

    From a design standpoint, technology is legacy and innovation is lacking. This is not necessarily the fault of the company, just the direction its taken. Management was oftentimes lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to those directly beneath you. A manager who cares about what is going on will make your employees care more about their programs.

    Manufacturing Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Meggitt in May 2017.

    Interview

    I received the phone call from a recruiter, who sent me a deny 'not selected' email seven days prior, saying there is a new job posting since last time I applied and my resume has been "flying around," and she would like to schedule a phone interview. I returned the call but never heard back, and I reached out but still, I didn't hear back. Then, one day I received a phone call from the same recruiter, and when I picked up, she hung up right away. Then, she called back in few minute. Politely exchanged conversations, I was scheduled for a phone interview next day, but I did not have one because nobody called nor an explanation email to reschedule.

    It was quite a disappointing experience. I'm sorry to say I won't be applying again for your company.
