Great place to work as long as market conditions are good

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at GrafTech International full-time

ProsGenerally good morale, as long as market conditions are good. Approachable executives and nice people to work with. Strong culture of ethics.

ConsVery connected to market conditions, and expands and contracts accordingly. Lots of recent layoffs. Some archaic policies, work conditions, and programs/computer systems. Some cronyism. Insufficient training. Undervaluing of some key roles. Weak HR leadership.

Advice to Senior ManagementUpdate of systems needed to stay competitive and increase efficiency. Increase compensation to retain top talent.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good place to work

Director (Current Employee)
Cleveland, OH

I have been working at GrafTech International

ProsDay to day work was challenging, with new projects and business areas providing ample opportunities for significant contributions and recognition. Management supportive of work/life balance.

ConsBenefits (retirement, health care) were slashed as the company struggled a number of years ago, in spite of management promises to maintain these for established employees and retirees.

Advice to Senior ManagementLeadership is not just decision-making. It is also about your employees knowing that they will be treated at least as well as investors. Respect. Honesty. Commitment.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
