Pros

The pro's were the people in the group. They were very helpfull, and they encouraged you to go for it more in terms of finishing projects.

Cons

Upper Managment didn't have the company very stable. It lead to the office being shut down. The cons was that the company laied off a lot of workers due to the move from Suffern, NY to Highland Heights, KY

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You need to haveto have better upper management so that you don't kill the chemistry of the groups.

    Pros

    Very good coworkers that are understanding to your role within the company. Also, the cafeteria has been remodeled and is nice.

    Cons

    The Operations VP's are not respected within the organization which creates a tense working environment. Also, you must be a member of their club if you want to feel as if you are contributing to the organization. Generally, there is an overall negative vibe in the office and the culture is very rigid. The Jeans days have been taken away and the company does very little for its employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some time to engage and colloborate with your coworkers.

    Pros

    Long history of business success. Company has a history of good pay and benefits. Supportive coworkers and flexible work arrangements.

    Cons

    With company up for sale over the past two years in the worst economy ever experienced, Alcan Cable is trying to cost-cut their way to profitability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Management Team needs to develop a new strategic plan for retaining and growing the business to capitalize on the pending recovery and look beyond short-term cost-cutting solutions.
