    Pros

    Appreciated for what you bring to the table, given plenty of opportunities to present to leaders, easy access to leaders at all levels.

    Cons

    You need to be prepared to work very hard with fewer and fewer resources, most employees take their laptops home and work nights/weekends to try to keep afloat. Continuous lay offs leave remaining staff with low morale.

    Advice to Management

    There is still a good name with Alcoa on your resume, but how about stepping back and looking at the company as a whole and seeing how staffing decisions have longer term effects?
