    Good Company. Improved significantly after the DuPont takeover.

    Autonomous car business could threaten their business over time

    Clearly establish roles and responsibilities. Give more one to one feedback to employees.

    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!

    I have been working at Axalta full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I wish there were pros, there are none unless you enjoy harassment and discrimination with no future. Unethical working environment. EEOCs enemy

    Cons

    Think twice before ever working here unless you are motivated by stagnation and resistance to change or improvement. The amount of sexual harassment, discrimination and overall misconduct that leadership chooses to ignore is just unethical. And don’t try to report it because you will be retaliated against. Just ask for their record of lawsuits. Only promising career is in PR to keep it all covered up.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace innovation and change. Especially given the future of the aufmoticive industry (autonomous driving, mobility, maven, pool cars) and invest in succession planning. There is no future of this business, if you own stock dump it. Management and corporate leadership and proven time and time again they are lost and have no direction. The plans are in financial deficits and having to conduct reduction in force lay offs. Predication is they will be sold or bankrupt well before 2020.

    I have been working at Axalta full-time

    Pros

    Axalta has been aggressive in acquiring market share and new business, as well as investing in capital improvements to its facilities.

    Cons

    Upper management has targeted legacy employees in management for removal so that they can be replaced by new employees at lower pay. Their current pay and benefit policies aren't attractive enough for newer employees to stay long term.

    Advice to Management

    Show more appreciation to your long term employees and look at ways to convince new employees to want to stay with the company.

    I have been working at Axalta full-time

    Pros

    Focus is on customers and growth, exciting for those looking to make an impact in a new company with more than 100 years of history.
    Nice company culture, very dynamic workplace.

    Cons

    Being a (relatively) new company, some business processes are still missing or not fine tuned. If you don't use a "can-do" approach it can be frustrating in some cases.

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

    Pros

    Autonomous
    work from home
    everyday is different

    Cons

    Set unreasonable sales goals
    Can not see where you are to goals until well after the end of the month
    Feeling as if they can make the number what ever they want so as to not pay out incentive.
    Company has cut back on 401K contribution and does not contribute on incentive portion of pay. Base salary below industry average.

    Advice to Management

    There is an obvious disconnect between upper management and the field. Transparency issues lead to low morale. Direction of company is clouded. Career paths are non-existent.

    Pros

    None, None, None, None, None.

    Cons

    Way to much to list.

    Advice to Management

    Never ask a employee to leave his fathers bed side in his last living hours to go work.
