    Pros

    Do a great job of making you feel at home with the company. Great relationships that make you feel like you can talk to anyone at any time. It always seems like someone cares about you. Want you to have an impact on the business but really care about your growth as an individual.

    Cons

    Work life balance can be rough at times, but that is often the environment in manufacturing so it is something you can expect when you sign on. Relocation compensation could be a little better due to higher prices of living in certain areas.

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

    Pros

    The machinists I worked with were outstanding. They gave more than they ever received from PCC and quite honestly should either be looking to work for companies that respect their level of experience as well as keep them inspired. Machining is a craft and science, that could be one's career if taken seriously.

    Cons

    Why should we be afraid to lose our jobs because we want some time away from work? Here's some advice PCC, when you're employees work hard not just in mundane tasks, but also coming up with solutions to make the company run more efficient and thus fatter, you need to give back to them. They could care less about airplane parts, but nonetheless they are coming up with ways to stay inspired and to make their mark. Why come to work if you're not inspired? Money? That leads to depression and anger because that's emptiness. A happy personal life means a good attitude at work because they have something to look forward to. You're giving back to them so they will give back to you even more and respect you. Duhhh!

    Advice to Management

    Build a schedule that allows these poor mules of yours to get some rest and cultivate their personal life (read above). If you need them to work a 50 hour work week, let them work a 40 the following week if they want to.

    Pros

    compensation is fair. quarterly bonuses

    Cons

    Work life balance is unfavorable. Runs with old fashioned and unsophisticated scheduling and production management philosophies. The company line of "make the day" is short sighted and creates uneven product flow.

    Pros

    PCC is very results driven. You can achieve fast paced growth in your career if you continue to achieve positive results. Strong company in a very strong aerospace company.

    Cons

    Vision from the top is unclear. Company results are shared very well now that it’s private. Falling behind in the digital factory

    Advice to Management

    Invest in IT infrastructure and software for industry 4.0. PCC is very behind in this. Clearly share company goals.
