    I worked at Meggitt

    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.

  2. Good company and very friendly people, Management is a bit disorganised

    Pros

    Holidays can be taken at short notice and pretty much whenever, very friendly employees. Small office containing all departments means that it is easy to talk between departments and get problems resolved. good for personal growth prospects

    Cons

    management on the whole give poor direction meaning deadlines are missed, and projects are rushed. Can be stressful at times. Limited budget on IT and software. Not much focus on keeping employees happy/motivated.

    Advice to Management

    More investment into new offices and less penny pinching on tools required to streamline processes and improve workflow.

    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

    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
