I worked at Precision Castparts full-time (More than a year)

Pros

I enjoyed 99% of the people I worked with on a daily basis. The work was interesting, but became repetitive after a while. Communication in my actual department was better than average.

Cons

Pay grade for a salary position in my field was lower than the national average. The pay increases over time are very minimal, and it's sad to see the people who have worked there for 20+ years settling for so little. Company wide communication was very poor.

Advice to Management

Instead of upgrading the signs or parking lots, the equipment throughout the facility should be upgraded vastly to perform more efficiently. With all the standards we had to meet for customers, it was surprising to know how poorly the equipment was maintained. A lot of bandages were used for temporary fixes when things should have been fixed permanently... however in most cases this meant there would be a temporary shutdown to that department, which meant no production. But in the long run, the quality of the material and the average down time probably would have shown better after a temporary shutdown and major upgrade.

    I have been working at Precision Castparts full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Competent engineers and decent benefits

    Cons

    Poor management and low morale. Management only values results, there is no room for error and there will be no support structure to catch you when (and I mean when) you fail.

    Advice to Management

    Eventually you cannot beat any more money out of an employee.
