Pros and Cons of Howmet

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Exeter, England (UK)

ProsYou can work 8 to 4 with 2 coffee breaks and a lanch break. There is a lot of independence in how you do your job and no one checks what are you doing.

ConsPeople skills of senior management are close to none. The company does not care about recruting right people, therefore level of overall performance is very poor. There is no training scheme for employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementImprove people skills and start engaging people. Redesign recruitment practices to get only the best people. Create a training scheme and let your employees develop.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
