    I have been working at Meggitt full-time (More than 3 years)

    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

    Pros

    Good people hard working and friendly. That make that place bearable. There really isn't anything else good about that place.

    Cons

    Terrible management!! Run away!! Shady management wants you to work not according to the manual and if the FAa finds out management will point their finger and claim they knew nothing. Claim you did it on your own.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to management training....gain some respect for the people that work and make y'all look good. Stop blaming the workers for not hitting the numbers and only taking credit when they do hit the they do hit the numbers.

    Travel, many interesting projects, you don't often get bored, a lot of R&D, good for networking, a lot of room to grow, good benefits, good job after the program

    Pros

    Hard working HR department that takes care of the travel expenses when you are constantly traveling around the world. Doesn't give time off for travel which is not consistent with other companies in this space.

    Cons

    Place had me traveling all over the place. Once done with the project they terminate folks. Cold hearted place to work. Life/Work balance is out the door. Working 60 hour weeks is the norm.

    Advice to Management

    Provide raises to the folks who do the work.

    Pros

    Good company to work for. Focuses on continuous improvement and values Customer focus. Uses MPS to drive improvements in the factory and offices.

    Cons

    International corporate office offers advantages, but also impacts some business communication issues due to time difference. Brexit has some impact as political and economic climate are impacted.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to drive improvements through use of MPS tools and processes. Look for highly motivated, educated and ability to learn and grow and Meggitt continues to become a world class aerospace company.
