    I have been working at Meggitt full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent benefits. Some departments seem okay to work in. Depends on the manager. Despite changing strategy and direction every six months (or so it feels), company is not becoming more successful.

    Cons

    Top-heavy senior management. Lots of queen bees, not enough drones. Employee satisfaction is not a priority here. If you are looking for work/life balance, do not apply here.

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of your employees. Your management styles do not breed loyalty and dedication. You will fail if your employees continue to be overworked and underpaid/under-appreciated.

    Pros

    salary was just 5% under market rates

    Cons

    Parking was lousy, had to walk through a pre WWI machine shop just to get to the office. No place to eat around there , UK Leadership was only around to eliminate jobs, provided no strategy, MIS was undependable. Just average on benefits and run down offices.

    Advice to Management

    Let the US Manage themselves, quit interfering with things you know nothing about.

    I worked at Meggitt full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The idea of the product is cool

    People are nice for the most part

    Cons

    Expect 70+ hour work weeks.

    Poor time management.

    Too much bean counting.

    They put no effort into understanding the technology behind their product or in the simulation field. They still think Playstation 2 type graphics are "cutting edge".

    No attempts to improve their software they just sell it.

    Management is not very technical.

    People literally stand over your shoulder to watch you work.

    Not a highly educated company.

    Extremely political like fox news rush limbaugh types.

    Not a lot of career growth from a technical standpoint.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house and start over this time actually invest in your solution.
