Graftech is a place where good researchers go to die.

Researcher (Current Employee)
Parma, OH

I have been working at GrafTech International

ProsIt is close to my home and my daughters can stay in the same schools. The pay rate is reasonable even though the benefits are poor.

ConsPeople trying to build little empires - Some managers that think they know everything about everything - Lack of respect for employees - Too many people that are going through the motions

Advice to Senior ManagementTry to do something for a reason other than it will line your pockets. The board siphons off so much cash with their constant stock options it borders on blatant greed.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

I worked at GrafTech International for more than 5 years


Pros: If you have a corporate role you will have a fair amount of international networking, my advice… Cons: Poor middle management, mostly conformed by unqualified people, there are very few managers who really stand up for their subordinates or have the minimum leadership… Advice to Senior Management: Renew your top management, allow talented people with fresh ideas… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
