    I have been working at Alabama Metal Industries Corporation full-time

    Pros

    There are some great people to work with at AMICO. There have been many people that have made this a fun team experience.

    Cons

    The location is in a terrible part of town. Murders happen nearby. The management staff has unreasonable expectations about work and time commitments. If you don't work 12 hours per day, you're viewed as insufficient. It used to be a fun place to work - now there is no direction and the unreasonable expectations drive morale down. The opportunities for advancement have also come to a crawl - if not stop - as we have consolidated locations and closed product lines.

    I have been working at Alabama Metal Industries Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The staff is nice and fun to be around.

    Cons

    Workload and hours.
    Management.
    Communication breakdown.
    Economic outlook.
    Unreasonable expectations.
    Little to no employee engagement.

    Advice to Management

    Stop whittling away at the trunk and de-limb the upper branches. Improve employee morale (not sure you know how). Focus on what matters and exclude what doesn't. Your staff is tired, demotivated and uncommitted; find a way to fix that!

    I worked at Alabama Metal Industries Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits. Paid holidays. Laid back dress code and environment. Work is not micro managed too bad. Established customer base to sell.

    Cons

    Prices are high, business is down 50% over a two year period. 80/20 is turning away sales and they are laying off the majority of the work force due to a lack of sales....

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Having already cost 70% of the employees jobs at the company you are diligently working toward your own demise!

    I worked at Alabama Metal Industries Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent benifits, 401 k match, I worked at the orem plant for 20 years, was a great company to start. Promoted from within.

    Cons

    Work life balance off. Not customer oriented. Corporate management is focused on bottom line not the customer or employees. Never know if you will have a job tomorrow. Lay offs and shutting down plants. Expect employees to do more for less. Very unstable. Went from two shifts to one. Running a skeleton crew. Can't guarantee 40 hours. Unreasonable expectations and goals for workers.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees. Focus on the customers ,sales and employees. Work life balance. Promote from within, experience and knowledge of the industry is very valuable.

    I have been working at Alabama Metal Industries Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Medical benefits are comparable to most other companies. Typical package for vision benefits. Dental coverage is ok. Nothing to rave about.

    Cons

    Horrible hours and unrealistic expectations. Tons of projects that are obviously "dreams" but management insists on continuous presentations that take enormous amounts of time in an already running over schedule. Tons of bureaucracy. Horrible neighborhood with long hours expected. Won't hire for vacant positions... to just increase workload on all.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that there should be some sort of work/like balance. Hire for open positions quickly. Stop the endless impossible "dream" projects that take too much time. Get to know and understand the business.

    Pros

    Compensation fair
    Good bonus plan when goals are met
    Equitable work / life balance

    Cons

    Horrible working atmosphere
    Absolutely no teamwork
    No such thing as job security

    Ever since Corporate handed down unrealistic profit goals, the company has totally lost focus on the customer and considers only the bottom line to pacify the stockholders. Management knew it could make those impossible numbers only by cutting salary expense, which resulted in so many people downsized or going elsewhere to avoid being dowsized that the company is now unable to serve the needs of the customer base due to lack of manpower. I was one of the lucky ones who found another job and balied before the Corporate axe claimed my head. Placement service told me that they have more people from this company looking to get out than from any other client. Company is literally unable to fill some positions because every qualified person in the area knows their reputation and won't touch them. People remaining there are overburdened, hyperstressed, and are constantly on the lookout for a back to stick a knife in in an effort to protect their own precarious position. I have never worked anywhere where people work against each other as they do at this place.HR department is absolute worst I have ever seen. They have such a huge measure of contempt for the very work force that they are supposed to be there to serve that they discourage employees from bringing issues to them by being insulting and making them feel like idiots. Horrible, horrible place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate has given you an unrealistic goal. If you can't develope the backbone it takes to tell them that what they want can't be done without unacceptable cost to the company's functionality, I would suggest that you find other employment, as many already have, before they replace you, too.
