    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.

    Pros

    Good 401k, benefits, decent paid time off,

    Cons

    Poor work environment, bad work life balance

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees. Stop creating an environment where everyone is looking over their shoulder to avoid being stabbed in the back. Upper management don't listen to their employees and human resources always takes the side of management.

    I worked at Meggitt full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits were fair. And every other Friday off.

    Cons

    Management from the top to bottom does not have a clue. They use a bandaid method. They don't listen to the employee, for they have a degree and dumber than a box of rocks. Plus they can't do the job. They don't even come out to see how things go through the plant. But to upper management they let the shop employees take the hit. Shame on the Meggitt office for letting these people run there business into the grown.

    Advice to Management

    Learn the jobs of you employees before you open you mouth and try to lead. The price of paper you have is only paper. Learn your job in the real world. Baltimore management need to go from the top all the way to supervision.

    Nothing positive at all with this hell hole. Worst mistake of my life working there and resume killer as well

    Everything is wrong with this company. Especially upper management. They need a house cleaning for this selfish inconsiderate and "professionals"...

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    there is nothing I can say that is good about that hell hole. I am sorry I wasted so much time there.

    Cons

    the company does not seem to care if their employees stay or go. when I left, there was two people in the room besides myself. all thru the interview not once was I asked why I was leaving (after 20 years of working for the company). What does tell you?

    Advice to Management

    management should pay more attenation to what their employees have to say as to what is making them leave. all I can say is "good luck" to the employees!!

    Medical / Dental benefits are fair.
    Salary and 401 (k) are good (hourly worker wages are another story)
    Meggitt as a company has robust Health & Safety, Environmental, and Continuous Improvement initiatives.

    This is not a characterization of Meggitt as a company, but a review of the NKY facility only.
    Pitiful communication
    No training / skill building programs
    Poorly paid operators and technicians
    Dangerously low morale plant-wide
    Work culture is unpleasant and degrading

    I have been working at Meggitt full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are ok. Sick days are nice.

    Cons

    Upper management has no organization skills. They only know how to make tge plant look pretty enough to pass off as a productive plant. Look a little deeper and find poor morale, dishonesty, a fraternity of friends, family and neighbors running the plant into the ground because they are unqualified for their positions and do not listen to skilled employees. The full story of what is happening at the Erlanger plant is hidden from customers and corporate visitors, but is obvious when you check into the hard numbers not the projected future earnings of contracts that were underbid in the first place. Break rooms are in open factory air. Locker rooms are embarrassingly disgusting.

    Advice to Management

    All of the upper management should be replaced. Most administrators should be removed as well. I would be suprised if this place isn't closed within a year.
