    I have been working at Alcoa full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Competitive salary and benefits. Good work life balance in some departments.

    Cons

    Personality of the company has changed for the worse. Forced ranking introduced last year, which is a big demotivator, even for those who aren't forced to the bottom. The future of the company is unstable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think of the masses who have spent their lives trying to build up this company and provide quality products. Think less about yourself and what Alcoa can do for your pocketbook..
