Former Employee - Human Resources  in  Cleveland, OH
Former Employee - Human Resources in Cleveland, OH

Pros

There were a lot of advancement opportunities (not sure if there still is), the people are good and seem to care about one another

Cons

Political, very slow to change, layoffs every 6 months, tend to keep the non-performers because someone likes them, knee jerk reactions

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look further into the future, not just into the next quarter

    Pros

    Engineering projects were prepared ahead of time and spanned multiple departments for a full Alcoa experience.

    There weren't very many cons with this experience. The only issue is that i was not there long enough to see all the projects through.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Current Employee - Crew Leader in Newburgh, IN

    Pros

    Alcoa has a strong history in the community. A lot of good people working here, working extra hard all the time.

    Cons

    Use to be a top payer, but now pay is less competitive. All levels of workers are over worked, over stressed, low people appreciation. Alcoa Business Systems requirements, safety requirements, Production requirements...one person doing the work of many is common. No work life balance. Union runs the place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help all levels of management to develop people focus. Support Crew leaders who hold their workers accountable.
