    Current Employee - Senior Modeler 
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Precision Business Solutions full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It's mostly an Excel (Data Viz, Reporting, Outputs) shop with SQL to pull data. Some Data Warehousing practices that can be learned, but most things are pretty basic. Connections are due to corporate relationships from previous work experience of upper management and the CEO.

    Cons

    It's very old school consulting (50-65 face hours in the office expected) versus production oriented. If you didn't come in from a "top 50 school" or have an MBA no room for growth into one of their "modeler" roles. If you're a Data Analyst, very little shot of moving up to the "Modeler" level, so I'd advise you go for the Modeler roles, which is just Excel reports. Not difficult at all, just tedium as nauseam.

    Advice to Management

    None. I think everyone should have a right to run their company how they want to. Just as long as people are honest about their values and hold fast to them.

    I worked at Precision Business Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Great pay. Decent work-life balance.

    Cons

    President micromanages employees. No growth prospect (the founder is happy with the current size of the company). VERY high turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Trust the people you hired.

      I worked at Precision Business Solutions full-time

      Pros

      Salary is the #1 pro and what keeps people from leaving.

      Cons

      They say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results, but that’s exactly what Precision does. They treat their employees like crap and then act surprised each year when turnover is 50%+. They ask in exit interviews what people would do to fix the company & pretend like 90% of the problems don’t stem directly from the President. They wait until everyone understands a...

      I worked at Precision Business Solutions full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Teaches very valuable skill-set of technical and analytical skills. Benefits are wonderful. Lots of perks like working from home & bringing dogs to work.

      Cons

      Poor work/life balance. Management plays favorites. Management makes decisions out of reaction & not proactively seeking to retain high-performing employees.

      Pros

      -good pay -plenty of opportunity for growth & promotion -great as a springboard

      Cons

      -very poor work-life balance. Average hours worked is 50-55. -The President and upper management are unresponsive. The poor work-life balance is the business model of the company: overwork young employees until they leave, then get new ones.

      Advice to Management

      Focus on work-life balance. Focus on building retention and developing the employees you have.

      I have been working at Precision Business Solutions full-time for more than 10 years

      Pros

      Full exposure and access across the organization to all roles and responsibilities - from President down. Committed to performance reviews and salary and bonuses every 6 months. Fun social activities. Challenging work - changes all the time. No monotony. True problem solving and solution thinking. Growing, profitable company with high market demand.

      Cons

      High level of accountability throughout the organization. Don't work here if you want to be a slacker. No room for it.

      Advice to Management

      Keep doing what you are doing. It's obviously working. Do not pay attention to reviews from people who could not cut it, or thought someone else would do the work for them. People get very disgruntled when they lose their job, but don't want to admit it's their fault.
