    Good employer

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Titanium Metals

    Pros

    Laid back and no one gets too excited. Pay is about average for the area. People are good to work with and for.

    Cons

    Not much chance of advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to older workforce, they've been around and can teach a few things.

    I worked at Titanium Metals full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The pay and benefits were decent. Also, they provided snacks and coffee in the office.

    Cons

    I worked in a sales office. Most of the sales reps were entrenched older women. Training was poor to nonexistent. Basically, if you aren't a female in your 40s or 50s you won't be accepted as "one of them" and will be discriminated against. Technologically backwards; pricing is still done from a printed off page and a calculator instead of a program. Micromanagement is rampant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to diversity in your sales office. You need to eliminate micromanagement. You need some sort of company-wide training program instead of offering no training at all. Also, you need to develop a pricing application.

    I worked at Titanium Metals full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -I was allowed to work fairly independently -Most of the people were friendly -There appeared to some opportunity for advancement within the company -Pay was good

    Cons

    -Got laid off in 2009 with a big downturn in the aerospace business -The plant is sort of out in the middle of nowhere, unless you consider Steubenville, OH a grand metropolis. Best bet is to live towards Pittsburgh and hope it doesn't snow too heavily.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -None really, they were a decent company to work for.

    Current Employee - Senior Manager in Exton, PA

    I have been working at Titanium Metals

    Pros

    excellent benefits and fair pay
    most people are honest and hardworking
    many different opportunities to learn
    fantastic potential that may never be realized because of a lack of belief in great leadership

    Cons

    some people are horribly under-skilled, and yet, they get promoted
    backstabbing
    Only 2 women in senior management - 0 executives
    very good people have left the organization because staying meant 'playing the game' more than learning, growing, developing, helping the company succeed
    a few very bad senior management apples lead through intimidation, fear, and reactive decision-making.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the 'results at any cost' mentality before everyone with sense and ethics leaves the company. you can and should do better.

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

    Pros

    The wages are not bad. The shop floor workforce are great. Unfortunately that's about all the good things I can say about the place.

    Cons

    Senior management and directors have no concern for their workforce. People are disciplined for the slightest mistake. No money is spent on machinery or spares. It was bad before PCC took over but, now it is much worse. The managers are not managers. They are just bully boys for the company. Moral is at an all time low and it doesn't look like getting any better in the foreseeable future. Timet have got a lot of experienced and loyal people working for them, if only they would listen for once and use that experience instead of "YOU WILL DO THIS AND YOU WILL DO THAT " attitude, we could be a good company. My advice to anyone who is thinking of coming to work for this lot-
    DON'T!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the bully boy tactics and listen to your workforce for once.
