    Pros

    Axalta has outstanding automotive coatings technology and products. They have retained a solid core of sales and marketing professionals that were formerly with DuPont. They are in the process of separating IT function from DuPont, which will streamline operations. They have also restructured the Legal staff and my impression is that it is much more responsive and customer focused.

    Cons

    Management has added many new people from outside the coatings industry. It will take a while for them to get up to speed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lots of internal changes can impact employee morale. Drop the good form management behavior and show employees that they are valued.

    Axalta - Good Company / Strong Direction

    I worked at Axalta full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Competitive pay / benefits. Company is on a strong path as a coatings industry leader with new owners vs. being part of DuPont. DuPont is also a great company / employer, but coatings was not part of their strategy and the business suffered there. New owners and leadership are setting a good direction for strong global growth and leadership.

    Cons

    It was not a good fit for me personally... limited opportunities for career growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Strengthen the people planning processes. Do not ignore internal talent and employees' / leaders' willingness to embrace change and being a strong element of successful growth and industry leadership.

    Pros

    Nothing stands out. Company with a strong portfolio of products, struggling to regain name recognition

    Cons

    Not always the best chance for advancement--changing company standards for advancement are closing some doors.

    Pros

    Separated from DuPont to become an independent entity.Since it is a fresh company with substantial operating capital and is in the process of developing its own standalone functional capability there is vast scope and opportunities.

    Cons

    I do not see any as of now

    I worked at Axalta

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Friendly environment if you are an actual DuPont employee. Great benefits and perks. 401K, PTO, Paid snow days, etc. No matter what, if you need a material, you can go ask someone and they will more than happily provide you with it.

    Cons

    Some of the cons are that I saw a contractor employee who had a rough 2 months. This person did everything they were told no matter what the circumstances were. The 2 trainers were treating them as their personal pet. This trainee completed all the brunt work that no one else wanted to do. The trainers yelled at this person while using extreme profanity and aggression. This trainee went to the contractor manager and explained the situation, with proving documents, and the next day, their assignment was terminated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually look into details before ending contracts for employees that do everything they are told and feel threatened by co-workers.
