    I have been working at Axalta full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay is decent. Work is easy and indoors. Flexible start times. Safety for workers is a priority. Chemists and Engineers try to help you learn the job.

    Cons

    Health benefits keep getting cut every year. Difficult to advance your career unless you have a PhD. Lack of communication from lab management.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to the workers. Listen to what the workers have to say and make changes if necessary. Get rid of incompetent people.

    Pros

    Free coffee ...that's all I can say for a pro

    Cons

    No respect from leadership, if you are one of the "worker-bee's" you get absolutely no respect, no acknowledgement of good / hard work and forget about a bonus, you are basically there to make your managers and directors look good. Took away personal holidays and increases are ridiculous. Company looks down on anyone being responsible enough to work from home if they need to, yet they put us in this open floor environment, and we have to endure nothing but distractions while leadership works behind closed doors in their offices.

    Advice to Management

    Management, realize that your "worker-bees" are the ones that make you look good, try thanking your team, acknowledging hard work.

    Run as fast as you can, if they offer you a job. You can do better than Axalta.

    I have been working at Axalta full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    You will be in the same boat as other dissatisfied colleagues (who are also job-hunting). This company is the worst and will give you a gauge by which to measure other companies you work for. If you work for Axalta, you will learn what "lack of respect for employees" means. All valuable career lessons.

    Cons

    Management expects employees to get into work and be sitting in their chairs during snowstorms. There is no regard for employee safety and management does not trust employees to telecommute. Management is expert at cooking the books to make them look good by cutting employee bonus, 401K, and benefits. Why are key customers still displaying "DuPont Performance Coatings" banners?? Office atmosphere at global headquarters is noisy and does not lend to productivity. Are you kidding...cubicles??? They are tables with no noise barriers. Why do you interrupt staff working with endless tours of new hires, top managers, and customers? Don't you know it is distracting?? Are we employees or are we monkeys in cages at the zoo?

    Advice to Management

    Good luck as you drive this company into mediocrity.
