    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Century Aluminum full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Outstanding compensation and benefits. Wonderful coworkers. Overall company culture is quite positive. This is an organization that is growing and doing many of the 'right' things.

    Cons

    While rapidly becoming a larger company, it still sometimes behaves a small one. Needs work on established policies and procedures in some areas.
