    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

    Good pay for NDT work outside if oil n gas
    Great and affordable Health Dental and Vision

    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
