    This is a very good place to work with many opprtunities for future growth and promotion from within.

    There is a strong existing culture that is very stuck in their ways. Breaking that existing culture and creating better processes is going to be the biggest struggle.

    I have been at Meggitt for 4 years and I do enjoy my job. I have been treated fairly and there is an appropriate work/life balance. I am happy with the salary and benefits that are offered.

    High turn over with upper management. A lack of consistency though out the facility makes it difficult. Small company not a lot of room for growth.

    Pros

    Good benefits, Pleasant work atmosphere. Work life balance is good for most.
    Many individual contributors have been at Meggitt for over a decade.

    Cons

    Reorganizations and layoffs about every 24 months. There have been many consolidations. Many changes in Sr. management, but the way things work stays about the same.

    The CEO announced that Meggitt was up for sale in February 2016

    Advice to Management

    Consider the point of view of the people who will need to implement a decision before making a decision.

    I have been working at Meggitt as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of friendly co-workers. They show a genuine interest in your life. Free dinner brought in each night so you can keep working into the late hours. As a hourly worker you can rake in a ton of money due to the overtime required.

    Decent work out gym. Clean environment. They have a full crew of daily housekeeping.

    Cons

    Excessive hours of work are mandatory 50-60 hrs per week. No exceptions. You can't keep up the pace, you are out of there. Kiss your work/life balance goodbye while working here. Make sure your wife has a picture of you to remember how you look like cause she won't be seeing you around. 12 hour days mandatory.

    Advice to Management

    You are losing great talent due to the grueling life style.
