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

    Pros

    Really constructive work environment at my facility, with many people willing to mentor me in different aspects of business and engineering. A lot of opportunity to grow professionally.

    Cons

    There isn't much that I would complain about. PCC is a company that rewards hard work. I would highly recommend it.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to facilitate development of co-ops and you could build a very strong talent pool within the facility. I'm excited to see where my location is in 5-10 years.

    Pros

    There is a lot of opportunity to learn within the company if you are very motivated.

    Cons

    It is a high stress job for salaried employees at all levels of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Be more composed when things start to go in the wrong direction.

    Pros

    Good pay for NDT work outside if oil n gas
    Great and affordable Health Dental and Vision
    Paid weekly with direct deposit

    Cons

    Training is lacking. Very throw you to the wolves. Even with experience already under my belt this was like coming in blind.
    Management is very very VERY highschool drama type.
    HR forgets that the H stands for Human. Make appointments to figure out and work out a solution. They cancel without a heads up at all

    Advice to Management

    Remember to care about your employees. With out them you wouldn't be in business

    I worked at Precision Castparts full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They can't kill you and eat you.

    Cons

    The lunatics run the asylum. I was a union employee, and there wasn't a day that went by when I wasn't embarrassed to be a part of what went on. My co-workers regularly turned in made up complaints just to cause grief for supervision. Most workers spend more time complaining about and avoiding work than actually performing a task. Glad to be away from PCC.

    Advice to Management

    RUN!
