    Pros

    Off Fridays, but only bc the former company had it set up that way; no pros when it comes to Meggitt, itself

    Cons

    *matrix reporting
    *incompetent leaders
    *you're-on-your-own culture; nobody gives a damn about anybody else
    *everyone passes off work to other people even though it should be their standard work
    *no communication via site, only vertical reporting to foreign entities in other countries; no site-alignment
    *the biggest game of "who can I forward this email to in order to not do any work" that I've ever seen
    *ill-advised management
    *executive leadership works harder trying to figure out how NOT to do the work rather than working

    Pros

    Good company to work for. Focuses on continuous improvement and values Customer focus. Uses MPS to drive improvements in the factory and offices.

    Cons

    International corporate office offers advantages, but also impacts some business communication issues due to time difference. Brexit has some impact as political and economic climate are impacted.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to drive improvements through use of MPS tools and processes. Look for highly motivated, educated and ability to learn and grow and Meggitt continues to become a world class aerospace company.
