    Learn the value of your people and hire enough people to support the high-tech electronic systems you sell. Listen to the people who interface with your customers daily.

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

    Pros

    Good products, decent benefits, and that's about it.

    Cons

    Entire management is totally lacking leadership, there are no processes in place, confusion reigns. The fact it is a joint venture makes things worst. Every small issue is solved as an emergency, in firefighting mode. This makes working here very stressful. Upper management destroyed the morale of a good group of people. Lack of training and lack of opportunities to grow as an employee.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be a leader instead of being a boss.

    Great employees who care about the products and their role in creating a safer transportation environment.

    Upper management flip-flops on positions, does not know how to lead anyone, and has destroyed morale of a great group of people.

    Pros

    Small company with a friendly work environment.

    Cons

    Meritor WABCO is a sales organization created to sell WABCO (Germany) products in US. There is no product development being done at Meritor WABCO. Engineering department has limited technical information available from WABCO-Germany and this makes the job of application engineers very challenging. Management is focused on sales departments and does not value the supporting work of engineering department (application engineering). Promotions are almost inexistent. Test engineering is limited to some system calibration (ABS, ESC) for different truck applications. The main focus of the test group remains technical product demonstrations for various customers.
