Pros

Alcoa Inc has a very well-established system for career development & performance review, and has very good health care program.

Cons

Alcoa Inc does not provide a very good base salary, and raise for each year is far below national average.

Advice to Management

Alcoa Inc should provide a very competitive base salary, and the raise for each year should at least match national average.

    Pros

    Reviews on an annual basis, yearly objectives clearly stated, fine group of people to work with on immediate team, advantages as a big company are that everyone's heard about Alcoa.

    Cons

    Having worked for the company before it was bought by Alcoa, I could see life before and after. Alcoa seemed to make things more bureaucratic. Seems that the company got more impersonal after the acqusition.

    Advice to Management

    People make the company, not numbers.


  2. "Older company with lots of potential"

    Pros

    If you are looking for a old-fashioned, conservative work environment in a large company that runs like a well oiled machine Alcoa is a good place to start. There's lots of opportunity for lateral movement and physical movement around the globe. The benefits package is excellent.

    Cons

    The company is heavily made up of baby boomers. There's barely anyone under the age of 30. Thus, the work environment is a product of the baby boomer era. It's a rather conservative place that doesn't change quickly or easily. I wouldn't recommend it to college graduates unless they love heavy manufacturing.

    Advice to Management

    The overall company is sound, but a lot of work environment changes are needed to address the hiring crisis. More clear job responsibilities and descriptions with immediate impact on the company are needed to lure grads. A more casual work environment would make the young feel more comfortable.
