    I worked at Meritor full-time

    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

    Get some fresh people with new ideas

    I worked at Meritor full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    For the most part the pay was good.

    Cons

    The company is run by an "inner circle/clique", promotion is based on who you know and not what you know. Company departments are disjoint resulting in constant in-fighting, which will sap all of your energy. So if you are thinking of a possible Career Path here, it is best to keep moving and finding a different place to exert your talents and energy on.

    Advice to Management

    Lip service is not enough to show true ROI on great ideas! Key people in decision making roles simply do not understand their domain areas. Constant blunders and waste of money produce nothing but disenchanted, and worse yet, disgruntled employees.

    Pros

    Location. Some coworkers. Experience. Part time work but getting compensated full time.

    Cons

    HR is a joke being led by non experienced HR team. Management is a joke. So much favoritism in most departments. Ethical issues specifically with upper management. Gender discrimination. Mistreatment of employees go unnoticed.

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example. Take a look at your upper management. Time for a change!

    Pros

    People care a lot and truly work hard to improve their departments - making things better for the customer and for their employees. Not far from Cincinnati to commute.

    think leaner - think more aggressively.
