    Pros

    On paper this is a great company to work for. The benefits are good and its a great place to get your foot in the door in the aerospace industry.

    Cons

    The company is suffering from serious growing pains, and the lack of experienced management if very much an issue. PCC is quick to hire new management with no real experience. At my position I had 5-6 supervisors, non of which actually understood the job I was doing.

    Advice to Management

    Company needs to go back to basics, its growing faster then you can keep up with and your quality and reputation is suffering for it.

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

    Pros

    PCC GSC Founries has fexible work shifts with full benifits including PTO, health, dental, vision and retirement. Their core values focus on working as a team and set a high standard on a non-descrimitive work enviornment. This provides all employees the opportunity to grow and build upon their abilities without personal restriction from other employees.

    Cons

    I find it hard to identify any negative aspects concerning PCC GSC Fountries as the company is a strict core values focused company.

    Advice to Management

    Management both upper and lower are increditablly understanding and willing to listen to the employees concerning all aspects of the scope of the positions below them.

    I worked at Precision Castparts full-time

    Pros

    Somewhat competitive salary and benefits, somewhat flexible work hours. Not a lot of office politics to deal with. Management is fairly easy to get along with and seems to care somewhat about employees well-being.

    Cons

    The extreme cost savings measures that are in place at the corporate level make it very difficult to get things done at the site level. CEO has very poor (disrespectful) communication skills. Some senior managers and directors at the division and sector levels (not all but some) aren't qualified for the positions they're in. Corporate leadership development programs are subpar. Archaic IT infrastructure company-wide.

    Advice to Management

    Make more capital funding requests that are supported by detailed business cases for money that is needed to get things done. Hire outside consulting firm to beef up leadership development programs and IT infrastructure.
