    Pros

    I have been at PCC Airfoils for almost a year and don't plan on leaving any time soon! With hard work comes great reward. Hard work and integrity does not go unnoticed, any training I need is readily available and helps get further in your career. Learning different areas of operations allows versatility and better understanding of how the plant operates.

    Cons

    Fast paced environment, but allows to keep busy all day to make the day go by faster.

    Pros

    There were a ton of different things that I worked on throughout my time there. Everyone was very friendly and the environment was good.

    Cons

    Boring at times. It's a huge place and sometimes hard to find things. Some of the work was very trivial for me.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    Quarterly Cash Bonus; Full Benefits; Reasonable PTO; New management seems to be understanding of personal issues that occasionally arise; Quarterly safety lunches for avoiding incidents at your facility of employment.

    Cons

    They will overload you with work until you are putting in excessive amounts of overtime and do their best not to compensate for it. You will fight tooth and nail for any type of promotion or raise. Annual raises are based off of a 2% cost of living increase, if you can even call it that. High producers are lucky to get 3%, yet if you give them ANY reason to give you less you can be guaranteed a 1% raise.

    Advice to Management

    Be more responsive to the talent you have employed. Invest in your employees. Give your employees avenues for higher success. Remember that laborers are human just like you.

    Pros

    Nothing positive at all about this company. Long hours. Bad pay. Given the award- Most miserable place to work in 2015!

    Cons

    HR defends bosses not enployees.
    I saw a employeee get in trouble for even going to HR.
    You manufacture 30k dollar turbine blades, yet they pay $13 P/H

    Advice to Management

    Pay more and treat your workers like people!!

    Pros

    Solid Business Plans and financial management.
    Incredible use of KPIs and Metrics for tracking nearly everything
    Great compensation! Made up for a lot of the shortfalls below.

    Cons

    Very long hours, demanding work, very difficult culture - departments encouraged to "fight" with one-another instead of cooperate. Cooperation was usually seen of the organization not challenging itself enough or as collusion to make life easier

    Advice to Management

    Encourage Teamwork between groups. Back off the culture of intimidation in order to sustain career longevity of the team and reduce turn-over - especially in the support staff / management groups
