    Pros

    Good colleagues to work with

    Cons

    Human resource organization is very lame. They can’t solve any conflict between management and employees’ performance issues. Everything is controlled by a few powerful upper managers. It is the worst company to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Need to treat each of your employees with basic respect and decency.

    I worked at Axalta full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great employees to work with. Especially those that came from DuPont. Committed and dedicated to delivering results.

    Cons

    Poor, ungrateful upper management. Leadership does not show appreciation for employees experience and the long dedicated hours they put in. They are focused on revenue and hitting bonus while making harder for employees to hit their bonus. Constantly changing goals, even mid-year. Leadership/Mgmt is focused on a "sale/merger payday" to get their big money. They are on a mission to eliminate employees from the "legacy company" (DuPont) who have helped build and retain their customer base during the first 5 years.

    Advice to Management

    Value and treat your employees with respect. They established the foundation to get you where you are today.

    I worked at Axalta full-time

    Pros

    Spent a lot of money upgrading our offices during acquistion...

    Cons

    Everything moves at such a fast pace that many people who can aid in a process are left out. Many decisions by management feel made in haste without thinking through all the steps. Those outside of corporate office may feel it's just a job, not a family.

    I have been working at Axalta full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great company to work for - great boss. There have been some growing pains in inventory and price increase which makes sales challenging but its to be expected. Great company and great management so far.

    Cons

    Not a whole lot of advancement opportunities without relocating. Smaller company than where I came from and there are not many levels.

    Advice to Management

    continue to support your team!
