    I worked at Precision Castparts full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The company is highly data analytic

    Cons

    Hostile work environment. Management cares nothing for the employees. Excessive cost cutting to the point where manufacturing facilities are practically run to the ground. No regard for quality.

    I worked at Precision Castparts full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    If you are in finance, a GM, or at the corporate or division level, they pay well because they know that's what you will need in order to stay for a year. But even then, sometimes they low ball people and don't care. Some of the people I met there are the most hard working genuine people and will carry those relationships with me for the rest of my life. People are always the best part! They just don't deserve to be treated like a number on a piece of paper or abused the way they were/are. Good benefits options and good 401K match, benefits for family were on the pricier side and near impossible for someone on the floor making $16 an hour. Tuition reimbursement up to $5250 per year

    Cons

    Multiple mandated, senseless layoffs every year (it could be you any day any time, any facility), inconsistent guidelines around SOX, safety and production metrics, executive level employees get annual bonuses in the 6 figure range while the hard working folks on the floor get a quarterly cash bonus of maybe 2%, basic PTO with a maximum of 4 weeks when you have 10 years of service or negotiated upon hire, no paid maternity or paternity leave, no employee recognition programs (no budget for it either), always focused on the negatives and never giving kudos or praise where deserved, no additional perks, LONG working hours with little regard to your personal life or commitments, always someone talking behind your back, you can't even trust your superiors to stand up for you or defend making the right decision, unrealistic demands on individuals, lack of timely resolutions to concerns brought up, an extreme over redundancy in reporting requirements, meetings to talk about meetings, very high turnover rates (which should say something but no one cares when they should, a lot of talk the talk but no walking the walk, the list goes on...

    I worked at Precision Castparts full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Superiors were very helpful with the training process - You'll learn about ITAR, EAR and other aerospace codes are regulations - You may work alone or in an intern engineering team. It depends on the size of the facility you'll work at.

    Cons

    - Sometimes working by yourself requires you to have to learn new items, and fast. - Some co-workers would like to ask the intern for help with completely unrelated items

    I worked at Precision Castparts full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You get to go home and sleep on Saturday after 60 hours of solving their problems and actually caring to make a better work environment. Don't work here!

    Cons

    They are in the money making business. Fat pigs basically. They abuse their employees in more ways than one which is why they have a high turnover rate. They don't mentor employees who show signs of leadership. None of the employees I worked with were ever happy. They were depressed. Beaten down and made into slaves. Good management promotes from within to make a strong team that runs itself. Read below please...

    I worked at Precision Castparts full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Ok pay for new comers.

    Cons

    Quarterly bonus is a joke. Doesn’t matter how hard you work, your bonus will be the same as the lazy guy next to you. You cannot have a family, you must put all your free time into the company. They hire management who know nothing about the job/company and won’t listen to the employees who have been there for years. Push push push to sale even if the customers don’t want the product yet just to hit you numbers. The manager I am referring too will take your job title away and then investigate to see if you made it up, when you is proven wrong doesn’t give your job title back to you even when you have earned it. Nothing is ever good enough with this company. Get out while u can!!

    Pros

    If you enjoy watching fellow management get belittled in front of all of their peers by a VP this is the place for you!

    Cons

    Do you enjoy verbal beat downs? Continuous threats? No work life balance? Leadership meetings once a week where they harass managers in front of all of their peers? Do you have a fetish for self harm? (-Due to zero safety focus) Then pcc is a place you want to work!
