    Pros

    ATI is a great place to work! The people are awesome. There is a mix of people that have been here for 20+ years and people like me who have been here under 2 years. The culture here is respect, kindness, safety and being part of a community. Like with any job it is up to you how engaged and motivated you are to be happy and successful, but my experience at ATI has been if you want to succeed you will! Even though we are a big company, all levels are respected and can make a difference.

    Cons

    It is hard for me personally to think of any cons, but I guess one thing that we are continuing to work on is process and procedures. Like with all companies I have worked for in my 25+ year career, ATI strives to get all of the processes written down and standardized. Sometimes it takes longer than we would like.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working on the Safety and respect culture it is working!!!

    Pros

    Challenging work and focus on continually improving. Pay is good but not great. Benefits are very good. Business culture is friendly and management cares about employees.

    Cons

    Goals appear to be for the sake of having a goal not any real motivation or reason for them. Restructured to very specific job title structure but no salary ranges information given.

    Advice to Management

    Release salary ranges for title structure. Less meaningless measurable goals for the sake of having goals.

    I've been with ATI 14 years and have seen a lot of change, mostly for the good. Tough decisions were made in 2016 to advance the company forward. The focus is on Relentless Innovation and with an eye toward additive manufacturing.

    Like most large companies, at times the company politics overshadow hard work and advance the ball toward continuous improvement.

    Pros

    ATI has a great product offering and is considered to be the leader in the specialty metals industry. There are a lot of very talented people and the leaders are committed to growing the company and developing their employees. There is career planning effort that opens the door for an employee to advance throughout all of ATI. There is a strong focus on employee training and development. The company is actively developing new solutions that will keep it on the leading edge of the industry and insure a promising future.

    Cons

    The commodity stainless portion of the companies portfolio suffers from global over capacity which limits profitability of that product line. The company is countering this situation by actively pursuing the specialty part of their portfolio that is tied to growing markets like aerospace, energy, oil and gas, transportation, etc.

    Advice to Management

    IT infrastructure needs attention. Business systems lag behind the state of the art equipment investments.

    Pros

    They have good benefits and good pay. Good people. They let you work overtime if wanted. They provide uniforms and wash them. There are opportunities to advance in the company.

    Cons

    The shop is very hot in the summertime. On your feet for long hours. Have to wear a hard hat all the time.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice if it was easier to move heavy bars through the saw. Keep on with the positive encouragement. It's appreciated.
