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

    Pros

    excellent pay and benefits for any position in the company.

    Cons

    Although you are told at hire, it's a tough work schedule with long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Supervisors shouldn't be looking for reasons to send some employees home while they let others get away with the same errors.

    I have been working at Wyman-Gordon full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Awesome employees. Everyone Is helpful and take pride in what they do.

    Cons

    You are at work all the time. You have to accrue vacation at small rate which adds up to about 1 day every 2 months and even then you have to use vacation on Saturday and Sunday to be off. They under pay you as Machinist. They don't appreciate their employees at all. They only take from employees never give.

    Advice to Management

    Show your employees some appreciation. They work hard for you why don't you try working hard for them. Give them some time off they have families too.

    I have been working at Wyman-Gordon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are no professionals working in Dillon. PCC culture will drive the Dillon facility into the ground. General Electric Industrial Gas Turbine(IGT) machining and ultrasonic inspection has failed. It will continue to fail. Chemical Etch for GE turbine and IGT has failed. It will continue to fail. The heat treatment and structural components (landing gear/bulkhead/critical fracture Ti ) has no quality oversight. General manager fired/quit, Quality Manager resigned/left, metallurgist resigned/left, numerous quality engineer left/quit /resigned, DSQR quit/resigned. More resignations/firings to come. Wheels have come off the bus, there is no driver, the gas tank is on fire and they are going over a cliff. The weather is nice.

    Cons

    A hurricane hit the factory and a tornado set down less than 3 miles form Dillom

    Advice to Management

    Bugger off.

    Pros

    Pay is decent, but not really a lot other pros to speak about.

    Cons

    No respect for people, its all about the bottom line. Be prepared to work long hours and systems at some plants are using 80's technology.

    Advice to Management

    Create an employee value proposition. HR needs to advice management on showing respect for people and their work life balance.
