Alcoa, Leading the way in the workplace

Inside Sales Department Compliance (Current Employee)
Pittsburgh, PA

ProsAlcoa offers a very relaxed yet professional work environment. They have an excellent benefits package and are quick to recognize hard working individuals. Alcoa Locations are clean and green. Alcoa also actively participates in the surrounding communities whether it is giving out trees for earth day or having a marathon for a local charity.

ConsI haven't run into any downsides, while i know that no company is perfect, Alcoa genuinely cares about its employees and that is a rare find.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to work hard to lead and develop those working under you to make Alcoa an even better company.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
