I worked at Alcoa full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The benefits were exceptional, and the compensation was fair. Depending on which specific plant or division you worked in your experience with that plants management could vary wildly.

Cons

Individual success was not cultivated or well recognized. Annual bonus's (very meager for most, mine was UP TO %5 salary), were usually applied on a group basis and did not even feel merit based.

Advice to Management

Every plant is different. Mine had bad managers that needed to improve their processes to include accountability and reward success. Others I visited/worked at I couldn't comment on.
