    Pros

    United Way Luncheon once a year and catering company provides a nice lunch and dessert.

    Cons

    Unrealistic due dates, assigned to too many programs, defect management system is a failure, too many requests coming from different directions, inability to keep up with everything responsible for.

    Advice to Management

    You've really make me feel undervalued based on pay and ability to improve our current situation by adding more staff. It's always catch-up, correcting errors due to working too fast, and just straight out job function seen as a burden.

    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.

    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.

    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.
