    Pros

    Relaxed environment and pay is good. People are friendly and easy going. Would recommend to a person has a great attitude.

    In a short sentence, working here is organized chaos. Work the weekend and have no work Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday. Only to get work in time for the weekend again.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together.

    Trust is the corporate culture...they go out of their to ensure that precipitates throughout the company. You have freedom to do your job.

    Can not move beyond adjacent technologies in their thinking for growth. In a very narrow band technologically. Not making strides to execute a digital transformation.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in internal entrepreneurship

    I worked at Moog full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Really enjoyed the type of work I was involved with while at KNOX Video. It was one of the few places I have worked at where I was able to utilize both of my main design skills.

    Cons

    Despite the company being an "engineering" company, it was run by "sales" people that looked down upon the engineering talent there. The sales personnel could "do no wrong" and would spend their day reading books, work their "home business" from the office and even leave the building to get paid at another job teaching flying lessons at a nearby airport!!! Meanwhile, everything the engineer's did was "wrong"!!!

    Advice to Management

    It's an "Engineering Company"!!! Operate the company like it IS one!!!

    Pros

    You can work here for 40 years and retire. profit share that works out to be around 2.5% of base salary, health insurance is decent. Most managers in white collar roles are very reasonable and care about you. Can take time off whenever needed. Tuition reimbursement up to $5,000 a year but 2 year minimum commitment thereafter. Certain vehicles, and cell phone discounts for full-time employees. 100% reimbursement for job related training, and a small bonus if you're going after a job related certification upon completion. Career training is important to them. Work life balance is excellent if you can stay just below management positions. Sure you get a small raise but the work easily doubles.

    Cons

    HR has too much power over career advancement. Unless you are a top performer, you won't get anything over 2% increase ever. They claim to not have money to spend but blow thousands on catering every month. Forced week of vacation use for Christmas shutdown. All sick time, vacation, PTO etc. is all one bank (only 13 days) until you've been there 5 years. HR preaches that they can pay less because there is no local competition to force higher wages.

    Advice to Management

    Increase vacation time for newer employees. Limit the authority of local HR depts. They shouldn't be allowed to run like a sorority holding a popularity contest. If you want your top employees to stick around, pay them what other large defense contractors are paying. It doesn't matter that some of your offices are in the middle of nowhere.

    I have been working at Moog full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Provides a flexible work environment. Health benefits are better than other companies. Efforts have been made to provide activities - fitness classes, outdoor nature trails, couch to 5k, biggest loser, gardening and other activities to help improve and boost a healthier lifestyle.

    Cons

    Very difficult to move out of position. Lack of training/mentoring provided. Management could be better at helping their employees succeed and improve in their current/future jobs of interest.

    Everyone knows the problem areas of the company but it feels like we try to fix it with temporary solutions and rarely get to the root of the problem.

    I worked at Moog full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very relaxed work pace with great work life balance.
    You will make a great career at Moog if you are a "sheep" and remain as such.

    Cons

    Extremely resistant and skeptical of changes. Embedded mindsets.
    Intense political groups formed by inept "old timers" who methodically try and eventually succeed in ousting talented new comers, particularly those that champion significant and rapid change.

    Advice to Management

    Your systems are full of inefficiencies and often built on old outdated and often wrong practices. Constructive criticism is frowned upon and adds up as a negative performance. Automatic trust in "old timers" has caused and will continue to harm and erode the organization.
    One of the most incompetent groups is the Corporate Environmental Dept. which is full of unqualified personnel. They survive on blatant lies and scare tactics, none of which is challenged or scrutinized by senior management who are content with the status quo.
