    Pros

    Their are many opportunities for process, methods, systems and equipment improvement and the benefits of your improvement activities can be significant.

    The processes used to document, produce and inspect products are inadequate for the served industries. This creates great reliance on the skills and experience of the employees thus pressures can be very high.

    With the acquisition of RTI by Alcoa Aluminum the best hope for improvement is to integrate the systems, processes and expertise of Alcoa to improve the tradition RTI methods.

    Pros

    decent pay
    good bonuses(sometimes)
    not fast paced

    Cons

    raises are nonexistent
    long hours
    high heat
    overall bad mood

    Advice to Management

    long term employees treat the job like high school drama. they also seem to make the rules everyone else has to follow. the only way to move up is to get someone else in trouble. the only raise you can look forward to is $.05 after 5 years. rules tend to change weekly and you only seem to find out when you break them. they also enforce a point system, miss a day and its a point, late is a half a point. there is no way around this even with a valid reason. you get six points/year. even if you plan to use a vacation/sick day you must call in at least an hour before your shift or you lose a half point. this is fine until you realize that you start at 5am, more than 50% of employees live less than 15 minutes away( so they would have to wake up earlier than need be) and no one even gets your message until 7:30. sounds easy until your job depends on following it. example; you get ready for work then go to leave and your car wont start. you decide to use a day of vacation(have to use a full day unless you plan it a week ahead of time) to make sure you dont get into any real trouble. but since you didnt find you broke car until, say 30 min till, you get a half point. besides that everyone there is in a perpetual bad mood.
