Assembler Tester PLT (Former Employee) – East Aurora, NY – October 5, 2016
When I first Started at Moog it was an amazing atmosphere and great people. As time went on new managers started taking over and currently they are tearing the company apart from the inside out. Most enjoyable was the paycheck. The hardest part of the job was dealing with different people barking orders all contradicting themselves thus forcing you to work overtime to pick up all the pieces.
Manager (Current Employee) – United States – October 3, 2016
Moog was founded on trust and faith in their employees. Sadly, new management has gutted the company of any of the founding principals that have made them wildly successful in the past. Middle and upper level management positions are being filled with incompetent individuals that have pledged allegiance to new leadership as a thank you for a cushy job. Unfortunately the quality, performance and integrity of the parts manufactured has suffered greatly. Failure to comply with any regulatory requirements will sink the company!

Sometimes old fashioned business practice. Travel less, use more collaboration tools and video conferencing tools.

Moog had so much work when I was there that you could always find something to do. The recession hit and the company suffered; but the company found a way to stay busy time after time. The work was challenging and they provided you with all of the tools and training you needed to do your job well.
Biomed Engineering Training Specialist (Current Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – January 4, 2016
Deadlines can become very hectic, but manageable. Work load is heavy, but understandable.
I have learned a lot of things working here, especially on the part of medical device manufacture and service.
I enjoy being able to finish complaint investigations successfully, and the satisfaction of figuring out what was causing the complaint is one of the best feelings. I also enjoy the training portion of my job, and interacting with the biomeds who would be servicing their own pumps is very interesting, and has its own challenges.
I enjoy interacting with my co-workers as well, and the only hard part of the job is when the workload accumulates and it takes several days working overtime to catch up.
Senior Repair Administrator (Former Employee) – East Aurora, NY – October 24, 2015
The position is challenging and engaging, everyone in the company is very talented and hard working. The company has some communication problems, however I really enjoyed my time there. I left because of the lack of work life balance. I worked on third shift and didn't have anytime with my family, which was the hardest part of the job for me. The last couple of managers I have had are great and still work there. The only problem with management there was that they are going through some restructuring so people are stretched a little thin and no room for advancement at the moment. I have had 7 different managers with in the 22 months that I worked there so that is the reason for the 3 star management rating. However, the people in the roles now are a great fit. Departmental communication is an issue but I believe that will be resolved by management. I would recommend working there overall.
Talented group of people, and challenging work
Communication issues between different departments
Project Operation Lead (Current Employee) – East Aurora, NY – October 21, 2015
Moog is a great place to work, I have learned a great deal about project management and operations during my time at Moog. Currently, the space market is in a decline and I'm looking for other opportunities.
I've had a long history with this company as a consultant.
NASA 7123 Engineer (Former Employee) – East Aurora, NY – October 20, 2015
In general, Moog calls me directly when they need something done in a hurry. They pay well for my services, and get their money's worth. The upper level management has made some bad decisions over the course of the last 8 years, resulting in some fairly severe downsizing and loss of business. The engineering management is generally pretty competent. My first stint at Moog was to educate their engineers on FAA DO-254 / NASA 7123 processes, and also to see a major product release from concept to TSO. Where Moog and other companies stumble is in the outsourcing department. Many of my consulting positions have happened because a company has gotten back a product from the far east that does "A", but their requirements need it to do "B". Normally, such a situation demands a complete redesign. Outsourcing is a fad that has definitely kept my consulting business very busy over the past 15 years in general.
Relaxed and friendly work environment.
Never know when upper management is going to pull the carpet out from under a project.
Master Planner (Current Employee) – East Aurora, NY – September 28, 2015
The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing the end product in motion and being a part of such an Innovative company. The company is very Lean-focused and empowers employees to lead and implement improvement initiative.
Document Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Chatsworth, California – August 25, 2015
Great place to work. The most enjoyable part of the job was the freedom and trust the company gave the employees to make their own job decisions and work independently. Most of the employees were self-driven people and I really liked that because I am one of those people. Most management were supportive. Most colleagues were very enjoyable to work with.
good job work/life balance and good compensation/benefits
New management is now more number than people driven
