    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.

    Pros

    There are no pros to working in this facility.

    Cons

    There are so many cons to work here: upper and lower management disconnect; management and office personnel disconnect. There is no encouragement to flourish, except to get more money for the company. I should put on my resume I am a fire fighter since that is all I do every day. HR is copacetic to the mediocre attitude. High turn over in management; In 2.5 years, there were two sales managers, three operations manager and one customer service manager. People are disgruntled and frustrated, no raises-only cents on the dollar.

    Salary is low and benefits will cost you.

    I took this job because I was told by there different people the day of the interview that there were many opportunities for advancement. That was a flat out lie. There are zero opportunities to grow.

    Don't waste your time and run the other way the fastest possible. This facility will eat you up and leave you lifeless.

    Advice to Management

    Stop giving yourselves longer titles, higher salaries when the actual employees are struggling to make ends meet.
