    I have been working at RTI International Metals full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Lots of good benefits, rarely work on weekends if you're salary, nice managers, decent working conditions

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations, poor management by upper management, don't use resources wisely, was formerly a nice place to work but now it's perks for only the chosen few, age discrimination pretty much in play now, if you're young you're in, lousy support from corporate.

    Advice to Management

    Very TOP heavy in corporate management. Pretty much a buddy system of hiring. Need to spend time with the "lower" class workers to let them know you appreciate the money they bring you!

    I have been working at RTI International Metals full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    RTI offers great training, and a very good benefit package. I would also say the DIrector of operations and other senior level management are very easy to speak with, and make time for those on the production floor.

    Cons

    The environemt in great, with the exception of a few whom believe they are "better" than everyone else. There tends to be to many meetings, and no real time to meet with certain management personnel.


  3. "Nice office surrounding"

    Pros

    Office desk space is large, quiet place. Environment is good. Personnel labour protection is complete. You will get labour protection training for couple of days and finally pass the examination.

    Cons

    A traditional company, displine needs to be followed.

    Pros

    Great Company to work for up to retirement! A good many job positions, and steady work enviorment..Great communication from worker to management..can work together..most of the time..looking forward to the future with ALCOA.

    Cons

    Working turns is hard on the body and hard to adjust too, week after week.

    Advice to Management

    Need to stop working turns and place people on one steady turn, according to seniority ... This would greatly benifit the health and well-being of your workers... and allow them to plan for time with there families.

    I worked at RTI International Metals full-time

    Pros

    My manager was very good. He guided me on what to work on but let me explore much of what I thought was best for the project. After I was there for several months he started to consider my work to be right even when I was not certain it was and wanted him to look at it.

    Cons

    The shop floor management was not very open to innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to innovation.

    Pros

    A very easy and laid back manufacturing company to work for. Very nice & friendly people who have the knowledge & skill set to help you out whenever.

    Cons

    Two Words - Union Shop. No one is held responsible for their work. Sometimes it is difficult to form a working relationship if you aren't a Union employee.

    Advice to Management

    Please work on communication. Communication is key. The better you communicate with the employees, the better understanding they have of the company and where it's heading.
