    Pros

    The people out at Klune, Spanish Fork are very nice to work with.

    The company is very quarterly driven, which means they will do dumb things to hit their quarterly goals even if it messes up production and shipping.

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

    Pros

    Better than average pay for the area. Decent benefits (but they used to be better). Most of the people outside of management were petty good to work with.

    Cons

    Extreme demands from corporate and management that make little sense and is very damaging long term. Any trust you give is abused.

    Pay for salary people is pretty much frozen and does not even keep pace with cost of living. You will likely have to leave and come back for any kind of pay increase.

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of the people who make your product and company work and the business will happen.

    Pros

    Pay is above average for this area.
    Benefits are good although they used to be better.

    Cons

    Very stressful place to work. OT is often encouraged although not mandatory as much anymore.
    Higher management is often replaced which normally turns the place upside down.
    Often their idea of the best type of management is to treat people like they never do enough.

    Advice to Management

    Realize people have a life and stop treating them so poorly.

    Listen to experiences employees and don't try to push the envelope both engendering wise and safety wise.
