Pros

Day to day work was challenging, with new projects and business areas providing ample opportunities for significant contributions and recognition. Management supportive of work/life balance.

Cons

Benefits (retirement, health care) were slashed as the company struggled a number of years ago, in spite of management promises to maintain these for established employees and retirees.

Advice to Management

Leadership is not just decision-making. It is also about your employees knowing that they will be treated at least as well as investors. Respect. Honesty. Commitment.

    I worked at GrafTech International full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    GrafTech is an organization that cares about people and the product they are creating. Senior management is very experienced and understands their industry. Pay structures are fair and competitive. They demand a lot from their people to continuously improve.

    Cons

    The industry has hit them very hard over the last several years and forced some very hard choices. Clearly from the reviews, the hourly folks at the plants do not understand global competition and there is never an employment entitlement.

    Advice to Management

    Stay strong, Communicate to your team, there will come a better day!
