    Pros

    Interesting processes and technology. Lots of turnover, which can be good or bad (depends on timing and the side you're on.)

    Cons

    Feel like a baby-sitter at times and better watch your back. They want you there all the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house! Some of the Managers are lying snakes! How did they get to where they are, and HOW ON EARTH do they stay where they are?

    Pros

    The people are good people even managers are friendly. There are a few bad eggs.
    Overtime.
    Quarterly bonus check but still just a gimick.

    Profits are their main priotiy.
    Mandatory overtime every weekend.
    Nonunion
    Terrible leadership.
    Bad benefits.
    Outdated technology.
    Resource hoarders.
    Underpaid.
    Takes on more business than it can handle.
    Dirty and loud.
    No raises or positive encourgament.
    No employee survey
    Employee moral is very low.
    No employee WiFi not everyone has service where the plant is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change everything about this place.
    Employees should be above profits.
    The business structure should look like this.
    Customers
    Employees
    Resources/tech
    Site Upkeep
    Research and development
    Then after everything else profits.

    too much OT, and seems to be a lot of favorites (ie. ok for some people but not others)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    cut back on OT theres been a lot of sickness and health issues which i believe is reults from working too much and not getting enough rest (ie. working 7 days a week 8 - 12 hr days) can make anyone sick and have health issues!!!

    Former Employee - Product Engineer in Mentor, OH

    I worked at PCC Airfoils full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - The people. I'm not just talking about the engineers. The people that I've met and talked to on the manufacturing floor have mostly been amazing. The moment they realize you want to learn and help rather than tell them what to do, they become not just a helping hand but friends as well. If I'm going to miss one thing the most about PCC, it will be the people here. As you can tell from other reviews, the operators can get pushed very hard. Despite all that, they still managed to help me out whenever I needed help.

    - Great pay. What most people don't understand is just how much the quarterly cash bonus is. As an engineer, plan on making a little over a third of your base salary as a bonus after two years. If I had to bet the farm on it, I'd say that the bonus will stay steady over the next few years.

    - Great technical knowledge. The people in the engineering departments that will be your boss know what they're doing. You will learn a great deal of technical skills from your projects as well as the day to day activities.

    - Very hands on. If you like getting your hands dirty, there is always an opportunity to and most times it is expected. This isn't Google or Apple. It is a manufacturing facility. You have an opportunity to learn the process hands on rather than relying on theory and calculations alone.

    Cons

    - If you are not a hands on person, this is not the place for you. That being said, if you are offered a position here, know that you will more than likely find no big surprises. During my interview process I was continuously told that you need to have tough skin to work here. That has proven true.

    My review of PCC is strictly based on my personal experience with the company. I can honestly say that in the last three years worming for the company I have been given every opportunity to succeed and grow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Keep developing the talent and look to the operators more often.
