    Pros

    The culture can be very strong and is a great reason to stay. Many talented individuals there.

    Cons

    Culture is a double edged sword, definitely can be hard for some to assimilate if they don't fit the mold

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. I think the company runs the way and old school manufacturing company should run.

    Pros

    Good hours, flexible schedule and management. You don’t have to worry about being able to take time off for appointment or family things.

    Cons

    Depends on your team and whether you’ll have a hands on manager. Tuition reimbursement program is terrible because you have to “apply”. Many politics within in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing political games and trust your teams.

    Listen to your employees more

    I worked at Meritor full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Location, global company, history. Used to be good years ago but has gone downhill. Not recommended for females or employees of different ethnical background.

    Cons

    Management unable to make decisions. Lack of development opportunities for employees. Lack of training. HR is a joke. Many ethical issues left unanswered. Environment not safe or suitable for female employees

    Advice to Management

    Look at your HR department and the ethical non compliance they commit. A lot of conflict of interest. Nepotism.

    Pros

    A lot of visibility into the market and commodities
    Continuous learning opportunities
    Flexible

    Cons

    Limited ability to grow with workload - no time for developemnt
    Poor management and structure
    Goals not aligned to work objectives - unable to excel
    Lack of growth and change limits the opportunity to develop and move forward

    Advice to Management

    Understand the buyer's workload and expectations and work to better tailor management and performance goals to meet this. Different commodities and projects offer different advantages and challenges and this is not reflected through management and performance goals. Overworked and extremely underpaid. Listen to your buyers and understand their frustrations. Lots of favoritism and limitations.

    Pros

    Want a great start into the world of customer service? Meritor’s for you. Gain some experience and move along.

    Cons

    Opportunities for advancement are slim and it hinges heavily on who you know, not what you know. Managers stick primary to old ways of doing things because “that’s the way we’ve always done it.”

    Advice to Management
