    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.

    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
