    Pros

    They make quality products and are well know in the industry.

    Cons

    No recognition for job well done. No control over career or salary. Not much support from managers or regional staff. Very political, it's more who you know then what you did. Also, in my position, I traveled a lot (>50%) with no additional compensation.

    Excellent distributor partners and co-workers.

    Realize the value in your work force, before they start defecting and you lose your greatest asset in the marketplace

    Pros

    Salary and bonus plan is fair. Most employees are really nice and helpful. Company gives the last week of the year as holidays for the employees in the HQ office.

    Cons

    It is impossible to get a promotion within the company unless you are a caucasian male. The CEO will only hire caucasian males for his leadership team. It's unfortunate because I've seen some really bright people passed up for leadership roles. CEO is not a very neutral person. Gave his daughter an internship in the highly competitive internship program and had the audacity to announce it in his intern welcome speech.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We are in the 21st Century...time to look at all sexes, minorities, and ethnic backgrounds as equals.

    Former Employee - Sales Manager in Glen Mills, PA

    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 ManagementAdvice

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