Toxic Environment
Confidential (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAAugust 7, 2018
Meggitt pursues and acquisition strategy and once they've acquired a company they appear to do everything in their power to ruin it. Employees are eliminated, raises are reduced, bonus incentives eliminated and then they pile on work. They wait until the company is bleeding to try to fix a solution. Their is a lot of incompetent leadership and it appears the strategy is to higher less competent people so there will be no competition. They have a lot of systems and processes in place and no clue what to do with them. Leadership are a bunch of box checkers...once they've checked the box they move on to chase something else and all end up being pretty fruitless wasted efforts and deployments of resources.
Pros
Only pro was a 9/80 work schedule and Meggitt was looking to eliminate that.
Cons
Brutal org. politics, lack of understanding by company leaders on what is happening at local sites...no empathy.

Too many meetings at Meggitt.
Engineer II (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CAJuly 7, 2018
Meggitt requires too many meetings, due to the Meggitt Production System. Three or four "DLAs" per day! This is going in reverse of what any other company is doing these days.

Laid back atmosphere
Production Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Erlanger, KYJune 26, 2018
Not very strict just come in do your job, hard to get good employees don't enforce rules to keep from losing people. If you just come in be productive and go home no-body bothers you

Need Management re structure
Sr. Buyer (Current Employee) –  Irvine, CAJune 22, 2018
Meggitt Sensing is dire need of Supply/Operations restructures from the top down.

From VP down, it is riddled with family and friends with no opportunity for anyone else to advance or be empowered.
Pros
My personal pay was appropriate for my skill and experience
Cons
Managers are part of a network of friends and family

Frustrating
Business Improvement Leader (Current Employee) –  Irvine, CAJune 21, 2018
Could be so great but choose to be mediocre. There are good products and good market share. However there needs to be some aggression in going after being great and it’s just too conservative. They accept ok.
Pros

Cons
Weak leadership

Just a sweatshop
Terd Polisher (Former Employee) –  Danville Carbon PlantMay 20, 2018
A typical day - Just like the other posters said - every plant must be like a "mom and pop" shop running half-assed while they try to implement all these fancy corporate ideas while acting like there's no money to spend (for most). It's not hard to see who has the corporate credit card.

Just like the one reviewer said: "If you want a job were you will be watched by managers and team leaders all shift this is the job for you. Dont like you talking. You need to be brain dead. Don't bother putting ideas forward as they wont listen."

This place has a real bad problem with Favoritism, therefore you get inept, unqualified management who are obsessed with micromanaging, along with lopsided enforcement of the rules depending on who they like, yet mortified that you could think the department is less than perfect. You get no chance of advancement, and high turnover rate, all in an environment of corporate toxicity. What you're left with is the typical soul-sucking factory work environment.

Be warned, if you are not 'bosom buddies', you will waste your time.

The health insurance is expensive and it's a hassle to use; set aside plenty of time to appeal their frequent denials of legitimate, routine claims. It's a company-funded health plan, so the state government has no jurisdiction over any grievances.

You get very little vacation until your 15 year anniversary. Just work hard and keep your head down. Good luck!
Pros
clocking out
Cons
clocking in, mandatory overtime

Worked Remote

It was great until our Director retired. I worked remotely. It was great until new management took over. Unrealistic deadlines were given. All hiring in CA.

If you want a place where you are not appreciated, and are completely replaceable Meggitt is the place to be. The upper management makes our job impossible.

Great place to work especially for a long time career
Floor-Worker/Plaster-Forum Precast (Lead-man) (Former Employee) –  Rockmart, GAMarch 20, 2018
This job is great for anyone looking for a long time career as that is the best way for someone to get the full benifits of this work environment. There is plenty of room from advancement within this work environment
Pros
Good pay great benifits

Easy work, very poor management
Glorified Button Pusher (Current Employee) –  Erlanger, KYMarch 16, 2018
Those that do their jobs are expected to make up the work others do not. Management makes no effort to correct issues within their own departments. Always taking people for granted. Zero chance of any meaningful job advancement due to clueless supervisor.
Pros
Pay is decent, benefits good, work easy
Cons
Horrible management

The company could be a great company.
Sr.Buyer/Planner (Current Employee) –  North Hollywood, CAFebruary 5, 2018
Overall attitude of employees is rather poor, with little desire to pitch in or go above and beyond. Parent company is doing great according to news release..
Local location cutting back on spending. You get a lot of it is not in the budget. Lower level management is very week. They will not commit to anything, even if it might cost the company, a great deal more if they do not act now. I find that very frustrating.
Pros
Most of the people I work with was great.
Cons
No accountability.

Lost company
Molder Operator (Former Employee) –  Erlanger, KYFebruary 4, 2018
Meggitt needs to let ALL the management go that is still there from the old ownership! They are causing way to much of a distraction. Your doing the same thing over and over again but expecting a different result. Not going to happen. Change the management if you want to grow this business Meggitt.
Pros
None
Cons
Very poor leftover management

Change in corporate structure has created toxic environment
Production Worker (Current Employee) –  Rockmart, GADecember 7, 2017
Was better in the past. After a change in the corporate structure it has created a toxic environment for a person to be the most productive. Hard work is underappreciated and more time is spent in training class than work.
Pros
It pays the bills
Cons
New hr AND front office lack of integrity
