    I have been working at Alcoa full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Wonderful benefits and a lot of opportunity-as long as you're willing to transfer.

    Cons

    Overall compensation. Merit increases and performance pay for non-manager/professionals is not good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more skip level meetings with the plant employees. Remember not all of your plants are union. Provide more mid-managers with corporate training-don't leave that up to the BU. Tactical experience doesn't fill the gap for the lack of leadership training.
