    I have been working at Moog full-time

    Pros

    Treated fairly the majority of the time. Pay is decent. Management seems to care about the employees most of the time.

    Cons

    Too many people think they know what's going on and not enough people really knowing what's going on.

    I have been working at Moog full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A okay place to start but not great for a long term career. Education assistance is $15000 a year for full time exempt employees, better than most companies

    Cons

    They are always understaffed, don't want to hire enough people and push current employees to work overtime. The management have unrealistic expectations and want the employees to pull a miracle without providing enough resources. The salaries are lower than industry standards.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to do new projects and make improvements, hire enough employees. Manufacturing jobs here are brain numbing and D&D involves a lot of political backstabbing. Everyone should work to achieve a common goal instead of getting in the way and resisting change

    Pros

    OK pay and perks, while well under what other medical companies pay.
    Operations quality, regulatory and finance are good departments to work for.

    Cons

    D&D department has a bad culture at management level that promotes yelling, threats, attacks, and excesive criticism. Some managers fall asleep during meetings and they will change your assignments, while will give you so much work that you can't keep up. Then they are going to criticize you that you didn't finish your work on time. You might have the surprise that your manager talks to your coworkers about your performance and why they will change your assignments, which demoralizes everyone. HR did several surveys which came out with really low results, and nothing has been done. They will promise the world when they hire you, and you will have a bad surprise that these promises will not be kept. They have financial problems and business is not doing well.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to lead and listen to your people and not just pretend that you listen. Learn to invest in your people, train them, involve them to improve the business and stop the threats, yelling, and negativity. Learn how to do resource management and respect your engineers.

    I worked at Moog (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pretty relaxed environment...most of the times!

    Cons

    Hard (impossible almost) to get promoted, even as a top performer. Since it is hard to find qualified people, thinking that the current employees are 'stuck', the mgmt prefers to bring people from outside. So after 6+years.... I was able to get a promotion and more money....with ANOTHER company:) Also, very important, unfortunately, advanced degrees aren't valued @ Moog.

    Advice to Management

    Value the people you have - or you'll lose them and then wonder why you don't find qualified people! The good employees are a bigger asset to a company.

    Pros

    Great people and company culture, exciting work in aerospace on high-visibility programs, great opportunities to learn, exposure to cutting-edge technology

    Cons

    Long hours as a result of a growing workload, many new programs coming in, and trouble hiring the right people (experience and skills). Also, the benefits are being eroded (e.g. vacation and medical)

    Advice to Management

    Put a coherent plan together that will allow the strategic vision to be executed efficiently at the tactical level.
