    I worked at Meritor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The size of the company is good because you can still connect with most individuals at the HQ.

    Cons

    Every year they go through a change in management and weed out people. This activity makes everyone on edge and often times puts their customers at a loss for who is in charge. This type of old school culture does not bode well for Meritor's reputation in the industry and the Detroit area.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to your customers.

    I worked at Meritor full-time

    Pros

    Good people working on the manufacturing floor.
    Wide variety of products between OE and Aftermarket fields.

    Cons

    Frequent layoffs.
    Revolving door management team, bringing their own people in to replace current employees.
    Trying to force a poor culture into a good one.
    Long term strategy isn't well defined.
    Want top quality without putting processes in place to support it.

    Advice to Management

    Put more credence in manufacturing and quality professionals when making decisions rather than the Accounting and Purchasing functions.
    Hire the right people, and let them implement their long term strategies.

    Pros

    This company is desperate for workers and, while you have to start as a temp, there is almost a 100% chance you will be hired full time. They have the standard so-so insurance, 401K contributions, vacation time and etc.

    Cons

    Very low pay compared to many other options in Northern Kentucky. Extremely inept leadership, mandatory overtime, 20 plus year old forklifts and other equipment and a dirty working environment. Management more worried about find ways to achieve their annual bonus then creating a positive environment.

    Advice to Management

    None, won't listen anyway.

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Very good healthcare and 401k match.

    Cons

    There are leaders in place that have been moved into roles based on tenure, not their skill set, which creates a lot of skill gaps. Only matters who you know. Endless number of middle managers. Technology is severely outdated. Company observes a lot of out dated practices. Does Senior Management really need a separate parking lot and entrance?

    Advice to Management

    Ask the division leadership what they're actually doing to support the company's goals. What does HR do?

    Pros

    Forward thinking company always growing

    Cons

    No advancement at this place. Pay is lower than the average employer and benefits are just ok.

    Advice to Management

    Promote people! Add better insurance and pension. Take advice from the employees in the trenches. Learn from your mistakes! Relax!

    I worked at Meritor as an intern

    Pros

    The company offers decent benefits, the Florence location has it's own cafeteria, and there are opportunities to grow professionally in a corporate office environment.

    Cons

    All the offices are a sea of the color grey, the upper level executives sometimes shove overly lofty goals down the throats of their lower level associates, employees don't seem happy, and it does not feel like you have upward movement capability unless you're okay with moving to a boring town in Detroit.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out a way to connect to the lower level associates while goal setting. Suppliers will give a middle finger to the company if purchasing is forced to lower cost goals every single year.
