    I worked at Titanium Metals full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fun, challenging work, outcome based environment. Used technology well; invested in SAP and Hyperion reporting framework - best of class at the time.

    Cons

    Environment was tough; some leadership was definitely better than others. Cyclical business cycle with direct correlation to aerospace industry. Not for the faint of heart.

    I have been working at Titanium Metals (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Interesting place to work, many different processes, very good people. Many areas have plenty of opportunity for overtime for the hourly employees. Some new processes have come online in the past few years.

    Cons

    Since the PCC purchase, we have changed from trying to be the best to be the cheapest at all costs. Production is more important that anything else, even safety.

    Very limited opportunities for advancement within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to a world class supplier, not being the cheapest and cutting every corner possible. Stop disregarding that employee safety is #1.

    Pros

    Good benifits
    Steady work
    Flexible schedule for most salary employees
    Safety of employees is the number 1 priority
    Satisfying work
    Never a dull moment

    Cons

    New owners have changed the culture. The company is more driven by cost and production than doing the right thing. Major repairs are being postponed due to in sufficient money for the quarter. Budgets and manpower targets are cut 2% each quarter and are becoming unattainable. Manpower is not being replaced.

    Advice to Management

    Management does a good job worrying about the hourly employees however have forgotten to take care of the salary employees.

    Making the employees fearful of the repercusions of management is no way to operate. A little appreciation goes a long way and employees will be more productive.

    I worked at Titanium Metals full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay and benefits were decent. Also, they provided snacks and coffee in the office.

    Cons

    I worked in a sales office. Most of the sales reps were entrenched older women. Training was poor to nonexistent. Basically, if you aren't a female in your 40s or 50s you won't be accepted as "one of them" and will be discriminated against. Technologically backwards; pricing is still done from a printed off page and a calculator instead of a program. Micromanagement is rampant.

    Advice to Management

    You need to diversity in your sales office. You need to eliminate micromanagement. You need some sort of company-wide training program instead of offering no training at all. Also, you need to develop a pricing application.

    Pros

    Good benefits but management is poor.

    Cons

    Not managed well. Company will not spend money the right way. Would rather run people ragged with OT than hire more people.

    Good benefits. Treat people well. I would say above average to work for

    Cons

    New owners not up to times and don't seem to care about people, just dollars

    Advice to Management

    New owners, listen to the people in the field instead of beating them

    Pros

    excellent benefits and fair pay
    most people are honest and hardworking
    many different opportunities to learn
    fantastic potential that may never be realized because of a lack of belief in great leadership

    Cons

    some people are horribly under-skilled, and yet, they get promoted
    backstabbing
    Only 2 women in senior management - 0 executives
    very good people have left the organization because staying meant 'playing the game' more than learning, growing, developing, helping the company succeed
    a few very bad senior management apples lead through intimidation, fear, and reactive decision-making.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the 'results at any cost' mentality before everyone with sense and ethics leaves the company. you can and should do better.
