    I have been working at Micro Precision Calibration full-time

    Pros

    Some fun peers and decent benefits

    Cons

    In a word, dysfunctional. Management has very little respect for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up. Money isn't the real measure of being a successful and respected company.

    I worked at Micro Precision Calibration full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The only pros are the people. They are great.

    Cons

    At first I was genuinely excited to work there and learn about performing calibrations, but soon realized that I was hired to blindly follow management and sign off calibrations.

    No training. Hot headed, volatile manager. Woke up every morning stressed just knowing I had to go into the office.

    Manager would constantly be checking in with the office while performing on site calibrations. Jobs would work more efficiently if he would trust his employees.

    Heard, "I've never done that before" more times than I can count from the manager, who spoke highly of himself as a calibration tech with over 20 years of experience.

    Such a stressful environment that I started looking for a new job after about 1 month.

    Heard from other employees that the reason other technicians before me left were for the same reasons. Their reviews posted on this site.

    Advice to Management

    New employees are great to have in regards to improving processes, however, when management is set in their ways and aren't willing to improve upon the process, nothing is going to change. Not a good business model.

    Everything about this place could be fixed by one change... a new shop supervisor. The atmosphere in the shop was a LOT better when he was on the road

    I have been working at Micro Precision Calibration full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have worked here for a couple of years and I have to say I see the positive growth in the company in such little time. With new and old team members working together in a positive environment. Management is the same but the attitude has changed to a more appreciative and supportive manner. I'm very grateful to be apart of the MPC Family. Thank you.

    I have been working at Micro Precision Calibration full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Self management is possible with little over-site, unless performance is below average. Operations Manual is fully developed, but allows significant room for local facility to apply to its operation

    Cons

    Local facility has little support, which can be detrimental unless the local facility is well developed.
    Success of local facilities is defendant on the capability of local management.

    Executive management has executed methodology to improve condition identified above.

    I have been working at Micro Precision Calibration full-time

    Pros

    Company invested and believed in me as a younger employee. Support from other divisions and upper management is excellent. Network continuously grows as I meet more company individuals I can go to for help. Listen to ideas and allow freedom and creativity to implement the changes you feel is best.

    Cons

    None to report. Any issues that I have I can address to upper management and corporate officials and they work with me to resolve those issues.

    I worked at Micro Precision Calibration full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is not bad.

    Cons

    Family owned company, no room for advancement, caters to military for employees, promotes inexperienced, uneducated people into management positions. You can never file a complaint against a manager without being fired. Management will lie to the owner of the company to get you fired. No trust in upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Owner needs to retire and replace family with more qualified individuals to oversee divisions with honesty and professionalism.

    Pros

    Plenty of chances to move up to new positions and great family feeling with all co-workers. Overall this is a great company to start with or as a "in the meantime" job

    Cons

    Management leaves a lot to be desired, pay is a lot lower compared to similar labs that do the same job. Very demanding job with very little appreciation and incentives for a hard days work
