    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Meggitt full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Excellent staff (engineers and technicians)

    Cons

    But the management has been, in some cases, very political in the way decisions are made and who and what gets supported. Benefits could be much better. Some senior managers could be better suited in other firms where politically throwing people under the bus is more appreciated.

    Advice to Management

    Minimize the politics and personality clashes for the sake of profitability of the firm, listen to and heed your engineers when they tell you things need to be fixed and how they've usually done their homework.

    I worked at Meggitt full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I good job if you have NO other choice. Good if you just woke out of a 20-year coma; otherwise you will be frustrated.

    Cons

    Antiquated reporting and systems, very manual, poor IT, no work-life balance, below-average pay with the expectation to work 12-hour days

    Advice to Management

    Invest in IT and get into the 21st Century. Simplify metrics, less micromanagement.

    "The blind is leading the blind"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Composite Technician 

    I worked at Meggitt full-time

    Pros

    The benefits are great, The pay is decent, Long breaks/lunches,

    Cons

    The people who work in building 2 (older, dirtier, hotter) are considered 2nd class, compared to the people who work in building 3 (newer, cleaner, air-conditioned). Management is horrible at this place if they like you, they will accept you if not then you are not part of the clique. Favoritism plays a huge role when deciding for promotions or job transfers.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micro-managing your employees, if you train the employees properly and have an actual lead come watch you do an operation like a practice audit and have a physical sign off instead of master control the scrap rate would certainly go down. The use of disciplinary actions to threaten employees to correct behavior is not acceptable. There is this culture of allowing people to talk down or report on others on any... wrongdoing for exchange in loyalty, respect or for future promotions, some would call this "brown-nosing".

    Management supports education, mobility, and growth of the workforce that puts in the hard work. I've seen many people start from the bottom who are now in management.

    None, they drank the kool-aid except one VP who’s telling the truth.
