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

    Pros

    Very stable and profitable company. Coworkers are a pleasure to work with, and I feel that the company overall has a direction moving forward. Pay was good, benefits and vacations were industry-standard.

    Cons

    From a design standpoint, technology is legacy and innovation is lacking. This is not necessarily the fault of the company, just the direction its taken. Management was oftentimes lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to those directly beneath you. A manager who cares about what is going on will make your employees care more about their programs.
