    I have been working at Meggitt full-time

    Pros

    The employees are caring folks who are absolutely overwhelmed with the work load.

    Cons

    I joined Meggitt based on a negotiated salary and bonus package. The only problem is Meggitt pays bonuses based on favoritism, rather than performance. I held up my end of the bargain by working two jobs; they didn't meet their financial obligation to me.

    Advice to Management

    You are far too Eurocentric and completely out of touch with your US employees. Setting impossible standards is not a way to motivate people. It is a way to guarantee high turn-over rates.

    I worked at Meggitt full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Early finish on a Friday. Fantastic setting, nice vista and sunny.
    Good product, though difficult to make consistently well.

    Cons

    Severely over manned business despite it's 4th round of redundancies in 18 months.
    New business and innovation initiative is window dressing at best, and is delaying the inevitable.
    Very flaky business model and lack of embedded knowledge, process is very vague and engineering is a black art and kept up in people's heads.
    No or very limited career progression.
    Despite the promise of progression during recruitment phase, in practice it's non existent. Business and career progression expectations are greatly exaggerated during interview and recruitment.
    Ethics and compliance process and support line is ineffectual.

    Advice to Management

    Seriously need to review budgets as headcount is grossly oversized for the turnover.
    Embed engineering in the business, value it rather than treat it like a low cost commodity.
    Develop real career progression routes for individuals.
    More open, transparent and honest communication.
    Improved leadership as morale generally, is at best poor.
    Greater clarity and realism over career landscape.
