    I worked at Meritor (More than a year)

    Pros

    tremendous company to work a, nice people, human resources was great to work with, the purchasing department knows what they are doing and will always be on top of everything, overall great family atmosphere

    Cons

    1. I don't quite like the office decoration style. A little bit stressful and factory like. 2. The compensation is better than Google but not as good as other smaller companies. 3. Despite good acquisitions for solidify the position in social media, social networks, there is still uncertainty about the future of this particular work place

    Advice to Management

    Must Keep the company feeling small, don't let growth ruin the values we all believe in, also increase company bonuses and company vacations. keep doing what your doing as your a great place to work at in the state of michigan and midwest area.

    Pros

    Management treats you like family. Very fair work environment where safety comes first. Focus on Meritor Production System to eliminate waste and get to root cause of problems on the line. Clean work environment.

    Cons

    Pay should increase for people starting out. Would also like to see more focus on training and career development for assembly line workers. Need to reinstate tuition reimbursement program for all employees.....not just a select few.

    Competitive compensation, strong brand image in commercial vehicle industry, diversified customer base.

    Lack of strategy and vision, product and industry focus has become too narrow, too much emphasis on short-term results at the expense of long-term product development.

    Pros

    Smart, hard working, decent people at manager level and below. Pay very well even though inconsistently.

    Cons

    Underwhelming leadership that encourage people to act badly. Male oriented. They allow part of the company to leave early on Fridays but most people have to stay - very odd policies and treatment of people.

    Advice to Management

    This will never be a successful company without practical leadership, investing in longer term goals, and treating everyone at every level decently.

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

    Pros

    it was a great company to work for (I worked for the old Arvin side of the business). The Meritor culture changed once the companies merged, but the company was good.

    Cons

    The company got big quickly after the merger. They still treated employees well. I don't have a lot of negative things to say.

    Advice to Management

    Build a company culture, continue to invest in your employees, develop a sustainable vision and values statement. Have fun.
