    Pros

    You can telecommute for your work.

    Cons

    There is a lot of opportunity to improve in MIS, but they just move too slow. The main reason is the lack of budget.

    Advice to Management

    Just need to get some funding to manage MIS the right way.

    Pros

    Engaging people, good range of products, constantly looking to better them selves.

    People I dealt with were friendly and helped me to develop.

    Cons

    Was a big commute for me, but that shouldn't effect anyone else. The offices could be located in a better area with more going on

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work that you are currently doing at Meggit. I htink the company is in a strong position moving forward.

    Pros

    Awesome coworkers and flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    Upper management will kill your site because they cannot be bothered to come to the site and listen to the engineers. Additionally, while they are killing your site they will lie to the employees to cover up their intent.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying and start communicating with your engineers.

    Pros

    The company match for the 401K is good.

    Cons

    The executive leadership is so weak that the company is becoming more and more unprofitable. They keep laying off people in order to make the bottom line look good, when what they really need a thorough house cleaning at the top levels. The good people are over worked and looking to get out, while those who are incapable of making a contribution continue to get paid well for doing next to nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Things are not getting better. Instead of laying off people who actually perform, you should be looking at pay cuts for yourselves in order to make the company profitable again.

    Pros

    You can make some ok money here, but its that steal toe boot working in a plant life.

    Cons

    True plant life. Steal toe boot, on a bell system like your in high school, and they will try to find a way to get you fired if they don't like you, or at least in the plaster shop

    Advice to Management

    Get younger hard working people in management

    Pros

    There are many talented individuals within several areas in the company. Overall, some really nice folks.

    Cons

    Where do I start?
    Very meeting heavy. I do not mind productive meetings, but having three MANDATORY DAILY meetings before I can even turn on my computer or sit in my seat was obsurd. I didn't get anything out of those daily meetings. They took a huge chunk out of my extremely busy days.
    Training? What training? No real processes in place. In my department, everyone had their own way of doing things...because of lack of processes and training, and being thrown in the deep end to sink or swim, the folks who made it and didn't quit, did what they could, their own way. In the short time I worked there, I had three bosses, and more than 1/3 of my department had quit or resigned within a 90 day period. HELLO!!! HUGE RED FLAG THAT SOMETHING MUST BE WRONG.
    I have left with a very bad taste in my mouth, and do not have very constructive things to say, so I will stop here.
    If you are thinking of applying here, really do your homework. The place has a lot of unhappy, overworked, and mistreated people.

    Advice to Management

    I think it is very apparent that there are several areas that need major improvement, more help or better people in place to lead. It is not a secret to HR or Management where these places are. If you KNOW about your weak areas, why are you not focusing time and resources to fix and make them better? Wake up. You are going to lose more talented and dedicated employees, lose business or even suffer having to go through lawsuits. Your business has some huge gaping wounds that need to be bandaged.

    Pros

    decent pay, good benefits, 401k match, 100% vested, holiday shut down, that is it really...

    Cons

    always in cost cutting mode, even at the employee's expense (layoffs) they don't care, as long as they show they're making their numbers
    always, always, always in change and chaos mode, constant changes happening and shifting, in LEAN mode every day
    horrible leadership team, barely approachable
    people talk behind your back, so watch your back...cannot trust anyone here
    lack of growth, they promote "internal" but only if your part of leaderships' "favorite circle"

    Advice to Management

    retire, leave, move away, do something to stop the bleeding, because greed will come back to haunt you...

    Pros

    Great products, good benefits, fair pay

    Cons

    Always in crisis mode. Upper Management does not know what work-life balance means and don't seem to care about employees. Endless overtime, working over holidays, etc. Operations management is a revolving door. QEs, ME's, Buyers, Planners, Warehouse are all overwhelmed.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of dead wood and hire more support people. Get new management at Division Level.
