    I worked at Meritor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Room for advancement. Good pay and good benefits. Flexible

    Cons

    Corporate culture is non-existent. You can feel the depression setting in every day as you walk into corporate. Gray walls and carpeting, outdated posters, etc. Upper level management is essentially a "boys club." If you kiss up enough you can be promoted. Promotions are not based on your actual skill level. Plenty of employees who currently work there who should not have jobs there. Work until you die mentality. Some employees who aren't even in upper level management work 12 hours a day. General mentality that since the company is paying you good you get to be treated like garbage. Cut-throat and dog eat dog mentality. Lots of miscommunication and cross-functional teams are non existent. You will constantly be on edge working here. Work/life balance non existent.

    Pros

    Pay is good unless you are a new hire. You cannot have a balanced life. Management doesn't care if you see your family but you can bet that they will see their own while requiring you to work. :(

    Cons

    Mandatory weekends mean you don't see your family. Managment makes rules they don't follow themselves. People suck up to get a promotion. Good folks are abused. Unethical things happening all the time. Bosses cower to complainers. Dangerous work environment with no drug testing.

    Advice to Management

    Make weekends optional again. Drug test again. Pay new hires well. Don't make rules management doesn't follow. Don't advance those that haven't earned it. Give incentives to the good workers that are regularly taken advantage of. If you don't know who the hurting workers are you haven't done your job well and/or have hired people under you that are not doing theirs.

    Pros

    *There are opportunities for those who show initiative to advance their careers.
    *Administrative employees are paid competitively.
    *Although lessened over the years, it is still a healthy work environment.

    Cons

    * Employees were often tasked with doing more with less
    * Management often too concentrated with "The Big Picture" with little regard to
     details and data. As a result, the division took monetary losses that resulted in yet another round of layoffs of long tenured employees.
    * Cliquish culture
    *Middle management often powerless to make decisions, yielding to upper management. Most of the upper management at the Florence location has less than five years of experience in this division.

    Advice to Management

    Before this company was spun off to become known as Meritor, a Rockwell International mantra was "People--Our most important resource". This has been totally lost by upper management within the current culture and the fact has been reflected in recent Denison surveys.

    Pros

    - Great people at Meritor
    - Not Micromanaged

    Cons

    - Co-op/Intern work at best, would be a great position for someone starting their career
    - Management could use a makeover, ridiculously unprofessional and childish
    - Better planning during month end procedures
    - Interviewees need to be screened better
    - Not encouraged to apply for better opportunities within the company to develop as a professional
    - Asked to put in time on holidays or company shut down to achieve "metrics"

    Advice to Management

    Please re-evaluate your Shared Services Processing Department and how it is run. No employee should be working on a holiday or vacation time in order to achieve department “metrics”. I advise a blind survey to be taken by all invoice processing employees. Planning ahead on the calendar would be a good start and a re-evaluation by the company as to how metrics are run. The month-end procedure is horribly unorganized as well as the logistics of receiving the workload. The technology is well behind the times. All invoicing should be done electronically with the max of three touches. (supplier, processor, buyer (if needed)).

    Next, please re-evaluate who runs this team and the attitude in which they handle things. This was honestly one of the most unprofessional departments I have ever worked for. I cannot believe the company let's this stuff fly. It instantly brought me back to high school days. The tattling, rumor starting, etc. This all needs to end. I hope the HR department does truly re-evaluate the first tier management (not director level or higher) because this needs to change if the department is to be successful.

    Other than that there were some great people I met along the way, but the management in that department had me and others scrambling for a new position.
