Poor pay & advancement

You're overworked and underpaid. There's no opportunity to advance your career and management could careless because they're getting paid well. Training for your job is nonexistent. You have to use your pto for sick leave which is ridiculous.
Pros
None

Toxic favoritism, but a stable job
IT Analyst (Current Employee) –  Portland, ORSeptember 24, 2018
This is a large, sprawling company that is still growing rapidly. It is therefore a chaotic place to work. In my department, promotions are not all based on merit, but on personal relationships and favoritism. There seems to be a fair amount of nepotism in the company generally. However, it is a stable job: I think I could keep working here as long as I cared to.

Decent place to work
NC Programmer / Manufacturing Engineer (Current Employee) –  Tulsa, OKSeptember 21, 2018
Decent place to work. Fair share of cronyism and nepotism making it hard to advance into management positions. Pay scale isn't up to par with the market. Was able to learn a lot on the job mostly from excessive overtime and online classes provided by the company. Worth staying if you can come in with a decent pay grade.

Good Pay. Hours worked too extreme. Immature Managers.

behind the times
Web Developer (Current Employee) –  Portland, ORSeptember 16, 2018
Company is stuck in the 80s culture, technology is 10 years behind. Being a sycophant results in more career advancement than being hard working and smart.
Pros
low effort required, can just coast on cruise control
Cons
tech is ancient, career advancement or raises non-existent

PCC is extremely fast-paced
Heat Treat Area Supervior (Current Employee) –  Jenkintown, PASeptember 11, 2018
Supervision at PCC is extremely demanding. You will work 10+ hours days during the week, and most likely work one to two weekends per month. Your bosses will be down your throat to hit your safety and production targets, however at PCC there is opportunity for rapid advancement. You will directly report to the GM everyday and the division president twice a month on average; so there is good vision from upper management. There method is to throw you into the deep-end and see if you swim.
Pros
Great Salary, Rapid Advancement, Operators are friendly
Cons
An ex-marine and former supervisor once said "Working here is more stressful than Iraq."

A great company, highly recommended
Machinist and Grinder (Former Employee) –  Milwaukie, ORSeptember 10, 2018
Pay close attention to changes in company policy and you will be fine. I loved working here, I got cross trained at every opportunity and went to other shops when they needed help. I got along very well with co-workers and supervisors, enjoyed my work, and appreciated the option to earn OT when there was work available. The company had potlucks, BBQs, meetings and feedback that kept the culture friendly and made you feel appreciated. Promotions are very possible when you are diligent and do quality work.

Red Tape
Business Systems Analyst (Former Employee) –  Santa Ana, CASeptember 4, 2018
If you haven't worked in Aerospace then prepare for allot of Red Tape. This includes simply giving visibility to the Purchasing team on usage of its own materials. The Director made us work up to midnight for Christmas and new years to meet deadlines. The IT department wont allow you run a report on your own information. and any improvements attempted by departments to help themselves will get your hand slapped.
Pros
Friendly Employees
Cons
Bad Hours, poor Transparency

Management lives in its own world

Decisions are made according to policies and procedures. Then management ignores them if someone yells loud enough.
Management can also be very deceitful. There are good managers, but not enough of them with balls.

Management are dishonest and nepotistic
Operator (Former Employee) –  Bothell, WAJune 30, 2018
Don't work here. Your health and well being aren't worth it. The old timer cliques will practically haze you, upper management will not honor promises of training or advancement, meanwhile lower management will bully you about any time taken off, even unpaid with a Dr. note. Nepotism is rampant and the blame game is a favorite of all the machinists.
Pros
You get paid
Cons
Just about everything.
