Ding Dong.....Belda is Gone

Manager (Current Employee) Pittsburgh, PA

ProsAlcoa used to be a great place to work....good benefits, competitive salary. Now we seem to want to be just an average company on these items.....and management wonders why we have problems retaining new hires.

ConsCEO for the last 8 years, Alain Belda, has done a terrible job. Hoping new CEO will do better.

Advice to Senior ManagementRegain the trust of Wall Street. Tell the truth. Quit wasting money on projects that are doomed for failure (e.g., inert anode). Close the New York office, move back to Pittsburgh, save the money we spend on Park Ave. rent. Sell the company jets, fly commercial like Paul O'Neill used to do. Walk the cost cutting talk.

    Pros: Very talented and skillful shop-floor people keep the place running properly, and a top-of-the-range support staff of engineers, group leaders… Cons: Poor top-level management focussed too much on increasing the company's profile by getting involved in poor performing operations just to 'boost production' - only to… Advice to Senior Management: Firstly, forget about trying to be the big-boy in town and just get back to what you do best which is make alumina and secondary… – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
