    Pros

    The work can be challenging.
    Many of my peers are enjoyable to work with.

    Cons

    Benefits are terrible except for perks offered to upper management.
    The company appears to lack a true visionary at the helm.
    Many of the managers seem to have gotten their positions through connections to senior management and not due to ability.
    Many managers will take credit for their employees work to greatly advance their own careers while throwing the employee a bone to keep up performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to find a magic business plan in the book of the month and use your own innovation and ideas to create a successful company.

    Graftech is a place where good researchers go to die.

    Pros

    It 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.

    Cons

    People 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 ManagementAdvice

    Try 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.
