Current Employee - Analyst in Alcoa Center, PA

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..

    Pros

    Solid tools and processes
    Deep manufacturing / operations talent
    Pockets of effective leadership

    Cons

    Terrible work-life balance
    Excessive focus on short term results...1 y payback on Capital Investment
    Di is out of control....stop using a project mgt tool to tie to financial results

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to wake up and really "talk" to the workforce. Too much airtime w/ CNBC and 60 minutes. Lets engage our workforce with first genuine appreciation and then real changes that give them back their lives....this should only be a "job".
