    Pros

    Nothing to note for this company.

    Cons

    The company values experience over education. If you have a college degree, watch out for this company, big waste of time here!!!

    Advice to Management

    Ten years on a job doesn’t make you as smart as an engineer.

    I have been working at ThyssenKrupp Materials full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    In general people are nice.

    Cons

    Too much stupid team activity - this is not elementary school. Not fair promotion, anyone who applied and liked by management who like to do stupid team building activities and young, you get the position.

    Advice to Management

    I don't think you understand what the business is and work is. Instead of spending money and time for stupid team building activities, and limit Over time, why don't you have employees be more productive? And salaries are too low for Aerospace. Nothing changes for last 7 years.

    Pros

    I wish there was a pro to this.

    Cons

    The company is only interested in money and there is no loyalty. I worked there for Eighten years and closed one of there best divisions over money. If you are looking for advancement just say yes.

    Advice to Management

    I was a manager here and lying to the Corporate Managers is how you survive.

    Advice to Management

    Build a management training program. COACH your management team. COACH employees; reprimanding is inappropriate. Develop procedures for day to day activities and make an employee handbook. Ensure that handbook is readily available to employees. Build an HR Dept and make it readily available to ALL employees. Stop hiring criminals. Develop better hiring requirements for management and leadership level positions. Educate your management on the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and basic HR principals like holding private counsel with employees.
