It was to be my final job but things didn't work out that way.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at RTI International Metals

ProsThe company likes to promote from within. They have a strong backing and can survive a long time based on some good decisions made by its board and upper management.

ConsThey need to improve on consistent accountability. Some employees are still employed through the hard work of others. The anonymous hotline is a good source but has been taken overboard by reports with limited validity and not applicable to ethical violations as originally set up. The incentive and bonus plans really never paid out too much and should be a limited selling point for the company.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to exit interviews and set up improvement plans. RTI has lost their share of good employees due to inconsistencies within the system and holding on to ineffective employees. RTI should also hire HR PROFESSIONALS at some of their locations because there is a lack of professionalism as well as consistency in some cases.

A great manufacturing company that's growing in many aspects of the business

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at RTI International Metals

ProsA very easy and laid back manufacturing company to work for. Very nice & friendly people who have the knowledge & skill set to help you out whenever.

ConsTwo Words - Union Shop. No one is held responsible for their work. Sometimes it is difficult to form a working relationship if you aren't a Union employee.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease work on communication. Communication is key. The better you communicate with the employees, the better understanding they have of the company and where it's heading.
