I have been working at Novelis full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

I have worked with some excellent (and criminally underappreciated) people; Novelis does business with an interesting and exciting client base.

Cons

The company cares more about following its own policies than achieving its goals: it is a case of, "the means justify the ends." This results in poor direction for the career paths of individuals, as well as a poor general direction for the company. This past year was challenging for the company, but it will get worse under the company's current strategy.

Advice to Management

Focus on goals/results, not the corporate handbook. Reward the employees that generate value; otherwise, they won't be employees for long.

    I have been working at Novelis full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Paycheck (one of the lowest pay raises and no bonus)

    Cons

    This is really an employment experience! As pointed by several reviewers, the management waste the people's talent. There is no career growth in the company, nor does their seem to be an opportunity for one. The work is high and the work life balance seems to be an unimportant aspect to management. If you are single, that may be a good place for you (if you do not want to grow). It used to be a good company, but it is getting worse. The environment can be toxic and do not expect a lot of motivation in this place. The work culture definitely needs major improvement. I am already desperately looking for another job.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on creating on improving the work culture. Focus on creating job descriptions and career paths for employees.
