    I worked at Axalta as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good working environment, advanced techniques and instrument. Could learn a lot from senior engineer and researchers. Not too much pressure

    Cons

    Salary is ok. Do not expect too much communication opportunity with people working on other department. Not too many open positions

    Advice to Management

    More connection and communication with the workers. Higher salary.

    I worked at Axalta full-time (More than a year)

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

    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.
