Thread regarding Moog Inc. layoffs

Moog is no longer good place to work.

Was happy to take a package and leave Moog while the getting was good. Old friends left back at Moog tell me moral is low and the politics are terrible. Short term profits are more important that long term growth. Company now run by ruthless people and the old Moog is gone forever. Look for short term gain with long term pain. Do not be surprised if Moog is acquired by a larger corporation in the future. Moog is nothing now but a large US corporation which only cares about profits and not its people. New management unfortunately is really just mismanagement.

EAST AURORA, N.Y., Oct. 2 -- Moog Inc. announced yesterday it has closed on its acquisition of the assets of Northrop Grumman Corp.'s Poly-Scientific Division, which will now be known as the Moog Components Group.
Net proceeds of $72 million from Moog's equity offering, which closed on Sept. 16, resulted from the sale of 2,012,500 newly issued Class A shares and were used to pay for part of the $158 million acquisition. The balance of the purchase price was funded through the company's credit agreements.
Poly-Sci is a manufacturer of motion control and data transmission devices. Its principal products are electrical and fiber optic slip rings, brushless D.C. motors and electromechanical actuators, and it employs about 1000 people in three locations: Blacksburg, Va.; Springfield, Pa.; and Murphy, N.C. About two-thirds of Poly-Sci sales come from aerospace and defense markets, and the balance are industrial. Nearly half of the company's industrial products are used in medical equipment.
Poly-Sci was founded 50 years ago and was acquired in the early 1960s by Litton Industries Inc. Litton subsequently acquired Clifton Precision and merged it with the Poly-Sci Division. Northrop Grumman acquired Litton Industries in 2001.

I worked for MOOG in Springfield, PA. Unfortunately for some years I had a unqualified boss (no school , street language) who subjected me to many low level jobs in order to humiliate me.At one point this boss was changing my daily work 3–4 times /hour , harassing and bullying me. I could not say anything just to keep my job. I worked as a test technician even if I have gotten a master degree in electrical engineering. After that boss was laid off, my life at MOOG was much better. I never had the opportunity to to show my knowledge at the highest level I learned in college. Once ,working for a different company (as a test RF technician) ,secretly I did something that I learned in school (but I did not follow every step of the way, their engineering procedure) and I made millions of dollars for that company . My bosses trying to find out my way of working were spying on me ,but I never let them know my secret. I was well underpaid by both companies ,but most of the time I enjoyed the work I did. In both companies I met and I had the privilege to work with many highly regarded professionals and very good people.

Yes George Cameron is the reason the PA plant is closed he was responsible for letting a lot of good people go in Blacksburg and then went on a vacation with his family. I hear also that the plants under him in Italy, Czech Republic, and Germany are going on the block as well. The people he let go recently in Blacksburg were the ones holding the Moog EMMC together with them gone the plants have no leadership. I hope he gets all the Covid19 he can handle in NY

Rumor has it, some of Moog's California facilities are now losing a significant percentage of their key engineering personnel because they are being poached away by other companies.

I agree with this comment. I understand another layoff will happened 4th week of March as Part of theLean initiative and managers will be let go. Upper managers are giving out incentives to make their departments lean. I feel sorry for the folks that will be let go. It does not matter if you have been there 5 years or 35 years, They will treat the guy who has been there 35 days like he has been there 35 days. It is a reality folks at Moog are facing now, Management has torn down the Moog culture but still clain it exist and is doing well. How wrong they are. Good luck to the folks tht still work there. You will need it for the future. This company will become ripe for a buyout from another company within 5 years. We will see.

I joined Moog after finishing engineering school at Cornell. After about five years of living in Western NY and working for Moog I realized it wasn't a place that I wanted to make a career out of. To make a long story short, I ended up moving to Texas, it has turned out to be the best decision of my life.
