    Pros

    Some people are helpful and work as a team

    Cons

    Management needs to learn how to be a leader insure training skills are offered. They waste too much time on meetings and old school yelling and making people feel useless. The turnover is high and will only get worse

    Advice to Management

    Learn Management skills as your supposed to set the example

    I worked at Meggitt full-time

    Pros

    Acceptable salaries and benefits are OK. Roll over vacation time and some sick time.

    Cons

    Miami location is managed by an iron fist. No training to speak of unless you count running by and shooting something at you verbally that needs to be done. If there are hurdles out of your control, it doesn't matter. You stink as an employee. You feel like you have no worth.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage with positive reinforcement and develop your employees.
    Don't expect people to know how Meggitt works the minute they walk in. Miami is so negative and condescending to their employees no matter how hard they try. Too bad PLC in the UK hasn't caught on to it. PLC has a great vision and seems to value their employees. Miami needs a total overhaul!

    Pros

    Good benefit (9% 401K match that can be vested immediately, starting with 2-week vacation + 2-week sick time), good work-life balance, challenging projects and ambitious company goals. But like anywhere else, could be stressful when facing challenges to deliver projects/products.

    Cons

    Projects can be very challenging

    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 Processes are not followed and most are outdated.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.

    Pros

    Hard working HR department that takes care of the travel expenses when you are constantly traveling around the world. Doesn't give time off for travel which is not consistent with other companies in this space.

    Cons

    Place had me traveling all over the place. Once done with the project they terminate folks. Cold hearted place to work. Life/Work balance is out the door. Working 60 hour weeks is the norm.

    Advice to Management

    Provide raises to the folks who do the work.
