Pros

PCC is a great company to work for as far as compensation and potential for advancement goes. They pay competitively and have a good bonus program structure. They also are constantly looking for new talent in their staff to advance through the ranks quickly. They expect a lot and will give a lot in return for performance.

Cons

They are a very demanding company and will expect you to put your time in. Typically a 10-12 hour day is the normal. Also weekends are not out of the question and I typically spend at least 2 Saturdays a month at work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I would suggest to senior management to better unify the way management is trained. Being is a few different facilities at this point, some aspects of how the business is run would be hard to tell were from the same parent company. Many plants still operate on old mentalities and need to be brought into the 21st century. However, overall, the general direction the company is being led in is intuitive and good practice.

    Pros

    Salaries are competitive and the quarterly bonus plan is exceptional--when there are good financial/operational results.

    Cons

    They could care less about their customers. It is all about hitting cost goals. Work/life balance is non-existent. 12+ hour days starting at 6 a.m. were the norm for anyone supporting operations. Weekends were expected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Venture beyond 1950s style leadership. Communicate with your employees. Hold people accountable and follow through on commitments. Lots of opportunity for even more exceptional financial results if there was a game plan for everyone to follow rather than just the cost thing.

    I worked at Precision Castparts

    Pros

    Competitive salary, and good benefits. My direct managers were great.

    Cons

    Upper level management do not see the bigger picture and are too focused on meeting monthly goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The PPC location i was in was very antiquated, and more time was spent fixing machines than actual production. Management did not want to hire more maintenance personnel to help the problem in order to meet short sighted budget goals.
