    I have been working at Alcoa full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Solid tools and processes
    Deep manufacturing / operations talent
    Pockets of effective leadership

    Cons

    Terrible work-life balance
    Excessive focus on short term results...1 y payback on Capital Investment
    Di is out of control....stop using a project mgt tool to tie to financial results

    Advice to Management

    Need to wake up and really "talk" to the workforce. Too much airtime w/ CNBC and 60 minutes. Lets engage our workforce with first genuine appreciation and then real changes that give them back their lives....this should only be a "job".
