    Pros

    Spends lots of money on hourly overtime...if you're a hourly employee Alcoa Fastening Systems, is a "cash cow."

    Cons

    No regard for customer service.
    Poor middle management leadership.
    Leadership lacks focus.
    Middle management has very little, if any technical understanding our processes.
    Managers have no credibility with their employees.
    Middle management too focused on how to cheat our business system to show financial profit.
    Compliance team lacks teeth; has no power to affect change.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to basic. Fix our dysfunctional leadership the right way. Stop protecting the people that have destroyed our factory. Remember, as a leader your are accountable too.
