    I have been working at Meritor full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Strong incentive to make the leadership program what you want. Relatively few limits on where you can be placed.

    Cons

    Very "old school" industrial company that suffers from slow product development and minimal drive from management to innovate.

    Advice to Management

    Employee retention should be your number one goal. Competitive offers from other companies are driving employees (young and old) away from Meritor due to their lack of competitive compensation.

    I have been working at Meritor (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Much like family, Meritor isn't perfect, but all of the employees try hard, and it feels like family. There has been a lot of promoting from within in the past few years, which seems to really result in a group of leaders that listen and care for their people. The CEO was instrumental in rolling out the last top-down company plan called M2016 - visionary and easy to follow. Personally, I bounced around several auto-industry Tier 1 suppliers, then when that industry crashed in 2008, Found Home at Meritor.

    Cons

    Big global organization that is a little silo'ed but trying to be as matrixed as possible, and tough introduction of new global processes and IS systems. Same issues that all $xB global corporations have to tackle ...

    Advice to Management

    Keep showing us the path to success with M2019 and trust us that we can all get there together.

    I worked at Meritor (More than 10 years)

    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

    Decent working environment.
    I never had one micro-manager.
    They do at least some of their promotions from within.
    Team oriented company.

    Cons

    Never had a good handle on true cost of products.
    Profitability was always a question mark.
    Meritor suffers when truck volumes are either 'too' high, or 'too' low. They are not able to make volume adjustments and remain profitable.

    Advice to Management

    Stop focusing on "the next Quarter" results.
    Build the company for the long haul.
    Pay off that huge debt you incurred.
