Bait and switch

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Meggitt full-time

ProsThe employees are caring folks who are absolutely overwhelmed with the work load.

ConsI joined Meggitt based on a negotiated salary and bonus package. The only problem is Meggitt pays bonuses based on favoritism, rather than performance. I held up my end of the bargain by working two jobs; they didn't meet their financial obligation to me.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou are far too Eurocentric and completely out of touch with your US employees. Setting impossible standards is not a way to motivate people. It is a way to guarantee high turn-over rates.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great benefits... Poor Management!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Meggitt full-time for more than 8 years

ProsGreat benefits and a mostly friendly atmosphere.

ConsUpper Management doesn't seem to be able to fix problems. They implement processes to fix processes which never fix anything.

Advice to Senior ManagementUse the talent that already exists! Get the most out of your own employees. Learn what we do.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Stable and profitable company

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Meggitt full-time for more than a year

ProsMeggitt is a profitable, growing company that is not as well-known in terms of name recognition in the industry as some competitors...but they deserve to be acknowledged as an industry leader.

ConsThe senior leaders are a bit too wrapped up in the hierarchical structure (i.e. chain of command) with a little too much flowing from the 'top down', and not enough opportunity to share ideas upward.

Advice to Senior ManagementRaises should be merit increases, based on performance - not cost of living increases

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
