Challenging, but rewarding employer.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Kalamazoo, MI

I worked at Kaiser Aluminum full-time

ProsFlexible, interesting employer with good benefits package, particularly health coverge. Company allows opportunity to make employment what you want of it, and fosters good atmosphere for co-worker interaction.

ConsCompany is too lean structurally, and personnel wise, because demands are high and resources somewhat limited. Although salaries are good, lean staffing requires excessive work hours to complete demands. Turnover is relatively high in some areas.

Advice to Senior ManagementStaffing levels need to be improved.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
