Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Alcoa full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

There were a lot of advancement opportunities (not sure if there still is), the people are good and seem to care about one another

Cons

Political, very slow to change, layoffs every 6 months, tend to keep the non-performers because someone likes them, knee jerk reactions

Advice to Management

Look further into the future, not just into the next quarter

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

    Pros

    Alcoa has a strong history in the community. A lot of good people working here, working extra hard all the time.

    Cons

    Use to be a top payer, but now pay is less competitive. All levels of workers are over worked, over stressed, low people appreciation. Alcoa Business Systems requirements, safety requirements, Production requirements...one person doing the work of many is common. No work life balance. Union runs the place.

    Advice to Management

    Help all levels of management to develop people focus. Support Crew leaders who hold their workers accountable.
