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

    Pros

    Great for your resume but that is all about it. There is million bigger and better place to work with.

    Cons

    gossips, politics, negative comments, unprofessional ethics and behaviors. very high turnovers, excessive workload and responsibility, unstable company due to major financial crisis, facility closure and laying off the employees is major issues.

    Advice to Management

    Management won't listen. That is why great people leave the company in a weekly basis. Better not to work for this company if you don't want to waste your time and energy and your life.

    I worked at Meggitt (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very friendly and knowledgeable coworkers.

    Cons

    Management is clueless as to how to run a business. Almost got shut down several times due to paperwork issues. Processes are not followed and most are outdated. Scrap rate is ridiculous and management seems to either be clueless or just doesnt care about how to fix it. Meggitt bought the company from Cobham and made a lot of empty promises to fix their abysmal processes but it seemed things only got worse. I would not recommend working for this company. I feel sorry for all the good people that have to endure this place.

    Advice to Management

    Try listening to your people on the shop floor on how things are built. Be proactive when issues arise instead of the knee jerk reactions that only complicate the problem. And lastly try laying off the people that dont care about the company instead of people that are good at their job and strive to improve.
