Just a sweatshop
Terd Polisher (Former Employee) –  Danville Carbon Plant20 May 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

Little appreciation of work done
Site IT (Current Employee) –  McMinnville, OR1 May 2018
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.

Poor management and benefits
Production Worker (Current Employee) –  Danville, KY17 April 2018
This facility is very poorly managed. Every department works different times, most of the time there is no quality control on duty. Benefits are horrible, highly priced insurance. There is absolutely no advancing within this company.
Pros
It's a job
Cons
Benefits sucks, pay is poor, no advancement

Fitter / composite laminator (Former Employee) –  Loughborough, Leicestershire15 April 2018
Very badly run company where standing around a board discussing jobs are more important than actually doing the job! Like a lot of companies employees are only a number who are dropped in a heartbeat by people who supposedly know what there talking about. Promotion is for the favourites of the bosses and the people who prefer spending time at Meggitt as suppose to there own family.No clocking in and out terminals so people can book as many hours as you like and come and go as you please! As a fitter the work is a breeze and you won’t get an easier fitting or laminating job.
Pros
Finishing times

Glorified Button Pusher (Current Employee) –  Erlanger, KY16 March 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

Sr.Buyer/Planner (Current Employee) –  North Hollywood, CA5 February 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.

Molder Operator (Former Employee) –  Erlanger, KY4 February 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

Acheteur (Former Employee) –  France7 January 2018
[..] chef qui vire un acheteur senior après qu'il l'ait évalué de "technique" et de "motivé"

Le n+2 qui m'appréciait, il me semble, m'a offert une bière le dernier soir

Entreprise structurée avec des services dédiés comme la R&D BE Qualité SupplyChain même s'il n'y a pas de contrôle d'entrée .. Savoir faire au niveau production pour des clients prestigieux comme Dassault Airbus Thales Safran
Pros
Service qualité fournisseurs - Excellente ambiance SupplyChain BE RD Qualité
Cons
Absence de contrôle d'entrée

Upper management is a joke

Change in corporate structure has created toxic environment
Production Worker (Current Employee) –  Rockmart, GA7 December 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
