Former Employee - Engineer in LaPorte, IN
Former Employee - Engineer in LaPorte, IN

I worked at Alcoa full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

There is nothing positive to share about the LaPorte IN facility

Cons

Worked at the La Porte location for quite a few years. It used to be a good place to work, not any longer. I watched it go from good to very bad. I can only feel sorry for the employees still there. Jobs are hard to find these days so they don't have much of a choice. Terrible upper management. HR does not care about or help anyone "don't let the door..." Managers only care about numbers and nothing else. They are cruel to the employees, supervisors and engineers; in other words they treat them awful, intimidation, retaliation, belittling, chauvinism etc., It's sad to have worked at and watched such a great company with such happy employees turn into such an awful place. Another company that brings in new management that tears the heart and soul out of the employees.

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

    Pros

    Large company with strong focus on safety, quality, technology, and operational excellence. Ideal opportunities for metallurgical and materials engineers in process, manufacturing, quality, and commercial roles.

    Cons

    Individuals may be overwelmed by company and local management politics. Public company focused heavily on quarterly and annual financial goals that drives some short term decisions.
