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

    Pros

    Close to home.
    Reasonable wages and conditions.

    Cons

    Lack of trust and respect on both sides of has led to a culture of micromanagement where the experience of senior operators is regularly ignored.
    Short term view for cash has let the place run down to a poor standard with no real preventative maintenance anymore and band-aid fixes are the norm.
    Quality etc... we sell an inferior product at premium prices and i wonder if our customers really know what they are getting.
    Despite the company policy on safety production is always the first priority.
    Recent employment has gone almost solely to family and friends of managers with many not suited to blue collar/ shift work and placing extra pressure on teams.
    Many who made it through the last round of redundancies are now wishing they hadn't.
    Only see things getting worse.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look a the leadership and ask yourselves if you have your 'A' team in play.
    People work best when they are happy and confident in what they are doing.
    Tell a lie once and you're a liar for life... few people will respect a liar.
