    Pros

    Meggitt is a profitable, growing company that is not as well-known in terms of name recognition in the industry as some competitors...but they deserve to be acknowledged as an industry leader.

    Cons

    The senior leaders are a bit too wrapped up in the hierarchical structure (i.e. chain of command) with a little too much flowing from the 'top down', and not enough opportunity to share ideas upward.

    Advice to Management

    Raises should be merit increases, based on performance - not cost of living increases
