    Pros

    Not many the benefits. The people are ok but the union is a joke and gets the thirds hired back so they don’t loose there $6 a week.

    Cons

    Management is out of touch. If you ever see them. Major changes going on and everyone is out of the loop.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of your office.

    Pros

    Senior management is trying to build a high performance culture with meaning and purpose for employee's work.
    Company seems to be reorganizing and focusing on becoming a serious, global and competitive Aerospace company

    Cons

    Middle management is horrible - NO talent, no strategic thinking. They think leadership is based on their title. Don't listen or engage employees.
    Poor morale - tons and tons of turnover. Some new hires don't even make it 2 weeks.
    They are condescending and not respectful to employees
    Little growth and profitability - makes job security always questionable

    I have been working at Meggitt full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people I work with are pleasant for the most part

    Cons

    Literally... my boss is completely unaware of what is going on in my department. Paperwork isn't properly covered and engineers are on the production floor? What!!!! Like there isn't much I can say to be nice but I will try. You have people missing work all the time and getting raises and those who never miss and always do their job is literally being discarded like trash. You get rewarded if you are a godawful employee and when you actually do your job you don't exist. And people who aren't even bosses are trying to put their big boy pants on and assert their authority where it is not needed.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good look at your Erlanger plant because it's failing and the managers are to blame. For the love of all that is holy please drug test regularly. Someone is going to get hurt.
