    I have been working at Novelis full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fantastic Benefits including pay, medical etc, other compensation is excellent as well (bonuses etc); Great group of people - friendly, welcoming, down to earth; breaking through to completely new industry ideas - innovation in market, on site management is good, opportunities for movement and advancement very good; education reimbursement and job training offered, relaxed atmosphere (usually) and very proud employees make this place shine.
    I like my job tasks (for the most part), but the reason I will stay is because the people who work here are generally just great people, and anyone who's ever worked with the opposite knows - it makes ALL the difference.

    Cons

    Corporate culture is unfortunately reaching a plant that typically was not influenced as much - but with a move into the spotlight and such big plans in the future, I feel this was bound to happen. There have been cuts to some of the benefits that those who worked at Novelis for many years had grown accustomed to, however, what is currently offered is still on target or much better than average offerings locally.

    Advice to Management

    On site management - try to shield your people from the control of Atlanta!
    Atlanta management - trust the employees of Oswego; they have been successful for many years and will do whatever is asked if you just give the a chance.

    I have been working at Novelis full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've worked at the North American HQ for a year in a senior procurement role. I've enjoyed my time here so far and don't have many complaints. Although a well established global company there are exciting things going on currently. Growth is looking up as are profits. I'm compensated well (both salary and bonus). Benefits are better than most other large cap companies in Atlanta (wife works for a larger, well known company and is on my insurance).

    Cons

    None so far. I'm really like working here.

    Pros

    Incredible company with great product and forward looking goals. Work life balance is great, leaders are open and flexible to work schedules and manage performance results and not time in office

    Cons

    Metal prices are low, makes it challenging to be as assertive with changes internally because we are being smart about how we spend. It will be a sigh of happiness as prices rebound

    Advice to Management

    Management keep your ears open and your mind open to new ideas, thoughts, and hold everyone accountable.
