    I have been working at Precision full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Full exposure and access across the organization to all roles and responsibilities - from President down. Committed to performance reviews and salary and bonuses every 6 months. Fun social activities. Challenging work - changes all the time. No monotony. True problem solving and solution thinking. Growing, profitable company with high market demand.

    Cons

    High level of accountability throughout the organization. Don't work here if you want to be a slacker. No room for it.

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

    Pros

    Very organized environment. On my first day I was set up with my space, computer, and a training schedule. You will have a chance to work with many big companies. Smart coworkers who will take time to explain and teach you, so you can be more successful and bring value to the company. Great pay and benefits for < 50 company. Fun and happy office.Team trips - Austin, Miami, New Orleans and many more.... The company cares about the whole person giving incentives to read and work out. It also cares about the employee's family; including partners in office gatherings and giving thoughtful gifts to employee and spouse in appreciation of many long work hours.

    Cons

    Can be some long work hours, but that is pretty normal for most companies.

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

    Pros

    I was with the company for 4 or so years and had a blast. Had 2 promotions and pay raise every 6 months, plus 3 bonuses a year. If you pull your weight, you will be rewarded. End of story.

    On top, you will get:
    Lots of structure
    Developed culture and values
    Extensive industry and software/tools training (priceless)
    Mentoring from very experienced senior staff (priceless again)
    Good pay
    Great benefits
    Company trips
    Bonuses
    Great hanging out with coworkers, happy hours all the time
    A feel of belonging to a family who cares and respects you as a person and an employee

    Cons

    I really don't have any....

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. It's obviously working. Do not pay attention to reviews from people who could not cut it, or thought someone else would do the work for them. People get very disgruntled when they lose their job, but don't want to admit it's their fault.

    Pros

    Great place to learn SQL and data management
    Good pay

    Cons

    High turnover
    Long hours
    Results are "spun" to show improvement where none exists
    Lack of "real world" experience of most of the staff
    Rely too heavily on customers who don't understand what we actually do

    Advice to Management

    I'm glad I quit when I did. I couldn't take long hours, and it felt we didn't do anything to our customers besides show them flashy numbers that don't really add up. And what's with all of the similar positive reviews being written last week? Did you write them yourselves?

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

    Pros

    - If you don't already know SQL, you will learn it here. Of course you could also pick most of this up by taking an online course or reading a book over a week.
    - Most of the people that are not management are intelligent and friendly, but don't expect to be socializing with them during the day outside of IMs and hurried lunches.
    - Once you are fired/quit, you can join the Anti-Precision FB group, and read outrageous stories from other former employees... think of it as a support group.
    - If you start at one of the lower positions they will be fairly quick to promote you if you do well. However, you will be paid the same amount aside from a paltry bump. In other words, more work/responsibility, more stress, more hours - same pay. If you don't accept the promotion, they will find a way to boot you.
    - Precision does an excellent job of putting up a facade that their employees are important and even family, which is true in the sense that a cult is a family.
    - There is a good chance that you'll work in a cube with a big window... that looks directly over a dirty ally.

    Cons

    Wow... where to start. I will try to be constructive.
    - Turnover is extremely high... like maybe 70-80% within a year. I you have a chance to see the President's bookshelf take note of the annual company Christmas photos, and the fact that the majority of the people in the photos are different from year to year.
    - The best way to succeed at Precision is to be a 65+ hr/wk drone, a dedicated sycophant, or have intimate relations with the President.
    - The management style is indicative of someone who read an organizational behaviour text book, then either over-applied the techniques or applied the techniques way too literally. Ultimately it comes off as being coercive and manipulative to anyone with decent IQ.
    - You will be berated, condescended to, undermined, and have your character systematically assassinated both publicly and behind closed doors. Your e-mails, IMs, time spent at lunch or even in the bathroom will be monitored. You will be subject to illogical temper tantrums and odd team-building rituals/training.
    - The "model outputs" you will be providing to clients are often flawed, and the statistics screwed in favor of producing a result.

    Advice to Management

    Sadly I have none. There have been enough people through the doors of this organization that it should be evident that their management practices are severely impaired. The fact is they simply don't care. Employees are cattle to them, and I have a feeling the President honestly does not even see most of them as even people. Most former employees will not even list this company on their resume once they leave. MANY former employees parallel their experience at Precision as being akin to an abusive relationship that stays with you long after it is over. This is further evidenced by the fact that the Anti-Precision FB group has more members that the company has current employees.

    Pros

    The pay is excellent and the hours are good with weekends off. The work is not too demanding

    Cons

    As an employee, you are left with the feeling that you are disposable and if you don't like how you are treated, you are free to leave.

    Advice to Management

    You need to learn how to make your employees feel needed and a part of the companies success.
