    Current Employee - Research and Devlopement Technician in Mount Clemens, MI

    Pros

    Most people do not have to (or just do not) work very hard.

    Cons

    Zero benefits for contractors. Minimal hiring potential. Poor attitudes all around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more effort into contractor development and make appropriate change to close that revolving door.

    Pros

    Axalta has a great potential to dominate the coatings market. They bring to be table a wide array of some of the best in class coating systems and technologies with a global reach.

    Cons

    With the change from DuPont to Axalta, I had hoped that there would have also been a change in the mind set of the upper management; looking for long term goals for growth... however the focus on meeting monthly goals and trying to 'cost cut' their way to profitability did not change. They decided to cut cost by cutting much of their intellectual horse power (yes us 'Old-Timers' with 30 years+ experience in the industry) in favor of lower cost people. Axalta makes it hard to not feel like just a number on a spreadsheet in some accounts office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The bottom line is important, but so are the people who work to make it happen. You should talk a look at your own mission statement occasionally and ponder on your statement that "people are the most important asset"... look in the mirror and ask yourself if you really believe it?

    Axalta - Good Company / Strong Direction

    Former Employee - Manager  in  Glen Mills, PA
    Former Employee - Manager in Glen Mills, PA

    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

    really dont have any good reasons.

    Cons

    no challenges they just want work done from personnel and no motivation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to look into the way the supervisors and managers do things when something its brought up from an employee. They dont take immediate action.

    Pros

    They have pretty new graphics that look cool.

    Cons

    This company doesn't care about the business or the employees. It just cares about reducing people to produce revenue for their Stockholders. - The are removing all the knowledge and experienced people from the Standox/Spies Hecker brand, and lumping them under Cromax. What a terrible shame for 2 great companies that brought im High Revenues for the DuPont Performance Coatings group for many years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay away from Axalta...

  9.  

    Serious and business focused company, less family atmosphere, but willing to reward high performers.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Focused and driven to succeed! Take the time to meet and greet employees across all the shifts, particularly the night shifts. Senior VP's and Operations and Technical Staff, share the business vision and how people connect to it!

    Cons

    Less friendly atmosphere and new Senior managers, seem to have their own cliques.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Although change is good, remember to listen to those former DuPonters, who are knowledgeable and have valuable insight, based on years of successful results. There are a lot of Staff and other Managers with tremendous insight and the connection to employees to ensure an all inclusive two way sharing that will bring much needed unity!
