    Pros

    floor workers are typically helpful and willing to learn something new.

    Cons

    Too much tribal knowledge. Very little accountability. Many changes happening very rapidly. Old guard is being retired and new guard is flailing. Very defensive posture's between groups. Us versus them mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Too many chiefs not enough Indians.

    I have been working at Meggitt full-time

    Pros

    There are weekends off

    Cons

    ***currently employed by meggitt***
    I've just been moved to a completely failing program because no one knows what the heck they are doing, most of the things provided to work with is either expired or not in regulations... Management wants to hire their frat brothers who aren't educated enough to watch grass grow. I also worked with a gentleman who(I can't remember his name but I know he was military) was fired for being"over productive" they treat their employees like trash.... And supervisors literally have no idea how to do the job their own employees are doing. They hire drug addicts who passout in ovens and if police are called on said drug addict the one who called is suspended not the actual problem.

    Advice to Management

    Drug test regularly

    I have been working at Meggitt full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are ok. Sick days are nice.

    Cons

    Upper management has no organization skills. They only know how to make tge plant look pretty enough to pass off as a productive plant. Look a little deeper and find poor morale, dishonesty, a fraternity of friends, family and neighbors running the plant into the ground because they are unqualified for their positions and do not listen to skilled employees. The full story of what is happening at the Erlanger plant is hidden from customers and corporate visitors, but is obvious when you check into the hard numbers not the projected future earnings of contracts that were underbid in the first place. Break rooms are in open factory air. Locker rooms are embarrassingly disgusting.

    Advice to Management

    All of the upper management should be replaced. Most administrators should be removed as well. I would be suprised if this place isn't closed within a year.

    I have been working at Meggitt full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are a lot of good people working in the trenches there. When I say trenches, I mean trenches.

    Cons

    Meggitt appears to be confused about the direction they should take the company. Senior leadership (VP's and above) are so far removed from what is going on with their own company processes and systems. They appear clueless to the general employment population. The reviews you see about elimination of people and the expectations that the people left standing will put in whatever hours are necessary to plug the loss is spot on. This means that there is very little work life balance outside of the higher echelons within Meggitt. Leadership talks out of both sides of their mouth and all the talk about Meggitt processes is more of box checking than an actual culture. The culture is highly political with many culture vultures flying around trying to keep their butts covered and throwing anyone under the bus they need to related to that effort. You will find VP's that are not able to spell at an elementary school level so that is an indication of the talent. By all means if you are there, keep your mouth shut and your head down lest it get chopped because the leaders within the laughable centers of "excellence" don't want to hear reality. There are opportunities, but there is a definite shelf life.

    Advice to Management

    Start to practice what you preach. Flatten your ridiculous silos of reporting to create efficiencies.
