Pros

An industry leader with good future, professional culture, fair with people, compensation and benefits.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Excessive number of program and initiative "launches". Carfully select fewer of them to do very well.

    Pros

    Like others say, immediate co-workers. Not much else. The moral is at an all time low - people are extremely dissatisfied.

    Cons

    Things are like a train wreck here. What was once a reputable company with many skilled and knowledgeable people has become a sad shadow of its former self- there is a shell on the outside but the yolk is lacking. And that shell is gradually eroding to expose the dismal reality of how the company has changed from a company, whose employees were proud to work for, into something that epitomizes a repressive autocratic environment that rewards incompetence at the level of upper management while making life intolerable for those that drive the company. The disconnect between reality and expectations is absurd and the misguided strategy very troubling – it is not working, yet the company continues to say it is. As mentioned in other reviews, all the talent is leaving in droves. Unfortunately what is replacing it, does not fill the gaps. Do not believe a word they say about talent acquisition– it only exists in their minds. Simply a big glorified campaign accentuated with annoying buzz words. Many believe that it is just a matter of time before the cracks in the foundation become more apparent to the public eye.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All the propaganda this company continues to spew is nothing more than an ego trip for those at the top. When morale across the company is this low and you refuse to acknowledge it, despite clear and widespread evidence, there is definitely something amiss and it has nothing to do with the people, it has everything to do with upper management. And yes, where are you ABG??? Where the heck are you????

    I have been working at Novelis full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Compensation is great. Local co-workers are great.

    Cons

    The top-level (mis)management is destroying the company. Between ham-fisted business decisions and an HR department that is driving away the talent that sustained the company, it's only a matter of time before it all catches up with them. They like to talk about "disruptive" change. Too bad they confused it with "destructive" change....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire yourselves. It's the only honorable thing that's left for you to do. ABG, are you even paying attention to what's happening?
