Current Employee - Mid Level Salaried Employee in Oswego, NY

I have been working at Novelis full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Fantastic Benefits including pay, medical etc, other compensation is excellent as well (bonuses etc); Great group of people - friendly, welcoming, down to earth; breaking through to completely new industry ideas - innovation in market, on site management is good, opportunities for movement and advancement very good; education reimbursement and job training offered, relaxed atmosphere (usually) and very proud employees make this place shine.
I like my job tasks (for the most part), but the reason I will stay is because the people who work here are generally just great people, and anyone who's ever worked with the opposite knows - it makes ALL the difference.

Cons

Corporate culture is unfortunately reaching a plant that typically was not influenced as much - but with a move into the spotlight and such big plans in the future, I feel this was bound to happen. There have been cuts to some of the benefits that those who worked at Novelis for many years had grown accustomed to, however, what is currently offered is still on target or much better than average offerings locally.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

On site management - try to shield your people from the control of Atlanta!
Atlanta management - trust the employees of Oswego; they have been successful for many years and will do whatever is asked if you just give the a chance.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

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