    I worked at Moog Animatics full-time

    Pros

    It was great working with a lot of the people. It felt like I was working at a startup based on the amount of people at the building.

    Cons

    Many of the things weren't methodical. Issues come up and there was a lot of guess work involved. Many didn't get along with one another and this was evident since my first day.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend trying to establish a positive environment with more work-related events to bring everyone together. Most of the days were just all work and no play.

    Pros

    I enjoy working at Animatics for the most part. Most of the people are friendly (though most aren't the go out after work together friendly). Since they've been acquired by Moog, positive changes have been taking place such as yearly reviews (which they didn't have before), an actual HR person, some processes and better monitoring of benefits. Depending on the manager, some are more flexible with time than others, though everyone generally sticks to the 8-hour rule. Some social things have been implemented such as holiday parties and chili cook-offs, and on Tuesdays and Thursdays 2 people lead lunch time yoga/pilates in one of the open areas. In comparison to the previous review, there are no longer the top people who call it "family" and bring in their kids (even though they didn't allow others to) so in that way it's gotten a little more fair.

    Cons

    Transitions are not easy. Though no one got laid off during the acquisition, there have been lots of new systems going into place and politics in the office definitely exist. Generally the pattern seems to be getting younger sales engineers in who do a good job for a year or two, and then losing them to a competitor (who pays commission) once they get good enough to make a difference. The people who are happiest here are those that are content doing their job and getting their paycheck, unfortunately there's not much focus on improvement or career trajectories of the individual unless you really push hard, and even then it's not a priority. There's still some "bad blood" from certain management that didn't exactly treat their employees fairly (lowering salary during the recession and never bringing it back up), but for people hired after the acquisition it seems to be just fine.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on developing your people more, as they're the most important asset you have as a company. Also a little moral boosting every once in a while would help. There are a few people in the company working really hard and pouring their heart into their work but without the proper recognition, you'll probably lose them sooner rather than later.
