    I worked at Alcoa full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, vacation time, bonuses and relaxed environment

    Cons

    too many middle managers, too much micromanagement, alot of execs having no idea what goes on, or turning a blind eye.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look under your nose to see what is truly going on in your company. Don't take what higher managers say as gospel, they may be covering up to save themselves.
