Company is going through a growth transition and reorganization.
Director Quality Assurance (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – July 21, 2017
Meggitt is in the process of reorganizing by combining responsibilities and management replacement. The outcome is stacking of positions and a considerable amount of position eliminating which is resulting in a morale downturn.
As always mentoring my employees and working together is always a pleasure.
Senior Scheduling Manager (Former Employee) – Rockmart, GA – June 19, 2017
Leadership had difficulty with any new ideas on processes. No change was the motto. Antiquated systems of operation. Compensation was OK. No possible way of job advancement with the leadership that was in place when I worked there. Culture was a workforce of fear of job loss at all times.
I Love the work that I do supporting the war fighters
Machinist (Current Employee) – Baltimore, MD – June 7, 2017
You never know what to expect day to day. I have learned how to best work on composite materials. Good managers. Good workers always wanting to do the best job possible.Hardest part of the job is paperwork. Knowing that the parts we make help and support the war fighters of our country.
Test Supervisor/Test Manager (10+ years) (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – May 12, 2017
its a lousy place to work. people are very unhappy. Mainly management doesn't seem to care about whether the employee stays or goes. I can not stress enough that this company isn't worth the trouble of giving a review.
Management is tearing this business apart. They lie to employees as well as the customer. No wonder they don't have work. Meggitt need to unload the Baltimore plant or bring in management they may be able to save it.The need to pull a undercover boss on this building. It's a real shame that the hourly people will be out of work from there actions.
Meggitt Baltimore needs to find their identity!!!!
Engineer (Former Employee) – Baltimore, MD – April 4, 2017
No one in senior leadership can tell you any short/long term site or company wide goals. They deploy band aide methodology to address problems that previous band aides did not solve. The SLT makes commitments to customers without knowing the ins and outs of what's involved then turnaround and scapegoat the very team that should have been consulted when the dates slide unfavorably. Meggitt Baltimore has some very talented and intelligent engineers/ technicians but it has amount to nothing due to mismanagement and incompetence. Don't take my word for it........ask any of their customers.
All of the confusion of a start up, with none of the energy or drive
Management (Former Employee) – Akron, OH – December 12, 2016
I worked at the Akron, Ohio office with some great people. There were so many broken tech and business processes in place from 2014 to 2016 all over. It took a month to get purchase orders approved, no automated processes were online. They use a PDF for every kind of process in HR. This is the worse on-boarding experience you will ever go through. I had to fill out 20 forms to get on-boarded. HR was in disarray most times. You have to wait a week or more to get a response to a simple question. It took IT a week to get a laptop and 5 days for a phone. All processes were written for a formal and mature Fortune 500 companies, but they were executed at a small business level with chaos and terrible results. Expectation for job success were vague and undefined most times. No negotiation on starting salary either take it or leave it. Interviews were skewed to make you think you'd be doing one job, then day one, you get a different title! Most people in management were struggling just to keep their heads above water. Projects were always being delayed by UK for one reason or another, usually no funding. Robbing one projects funding to replace another's was common. No money to replace anything, but the infrastructure was crumbling all around.
Smart people here, but scattered, not organized
Lack of opportunities, too many policies, unreal, unclear expectations
Contractor (Former Employee) – Suwannee, GA – September 23, 2016
Friendly environment. Great camaraderie between co-workers. Everyone pitches in and lends a hand. Some departments are overworked and burn out due to huge amounts of mandatory overtime when large projects have to be pushed through. However, once it is over, there is definitely an understanding to take time off and decompress.
Friendly environment, free coffee, most times lunches and leftovers for the workers
Crazy busy during major contract deadlines., Then gets very slow when projects are over., No balance between crazy busy and dead stop on projects.
Customer Service (Former Employee) – McMinnville, OR – August 12, 2016
Great site for manufacturing improvement, but lacked updated equipment, and had large employee turnover. Competitive management salaries, but balance between work and home/family was far from even. Production employee salaries lacking.
Quality Assurance Engineer (Former Employee) – Rockmart, GA – June 3, 2016
Great co-workers. Good engineering work. Impressive floor workers. Most workers do their best. Work load is heavy. Good job satisfaction. Good challenges. Management is usually not qualified. Even senior management is poor. Frequent personnel changes. Frequent manager changes. Many good engineers have left. Management is often more concerned with keeping their job rather than doing the job right. I'm sad to report that. You could eliminate some managers and would never know the difference. The company has made more than its share of bad hires (i.e. of Directors...) due to quotas, or friendships....
Good challenges. Responsive work force.
Many upper and middle managers are not qualified to do their jobs
