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

    Pros

    Great people who are trying to work and do their best with what they have.

    Cons

    No training, depts. are ran too lean with not enough equipment or people to do the job correctly. Your people are tired of 14-16 hours a day 6 to 7 days a week. Staff up and quit killing your best employees, you are going to lose them!!

    Advice to Management

    Realize you are a multi million dollar company and run it that way...

    Pros

    Great benefits, emphasis on safety

    Cons

    bad management style with inadequate training. Too many unreasonable expectations.

    Under-staffed engineers and too many upper level management pushing for work to get done within an unreasonable amount of time. Very poor training. Expected to work overtime, so poor work/life balance.

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

    Pros

    Benefits are ok, German culture is different.

    Cons

    This place is about as dysfunctional as you can get. Everyday is unorganized chaos. The right hand doesn't know what the left hand does. Management is a total joke, they may look busy but do very little. The training is sink or swim. You are expected to work everyday until your job is complete, no matter if it takes until 7 to 8pm at night. You never know what time you my get to go home. Work is first, family is second. No sick time offered and only one personal day per year. The pay is horrible. Most other manufacturing facility's in the area pay much better. This job was such a disappointment.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together!! How in the world can you be a Tier 1 automotive mfg. when you treat employees like crap? Stop using so many temp employees and hire permanent ones and pay decent money! Invest in training and make a management overhaul.

    Pros

    Good benefits, 401 K is average

    Cons

    This company is an unbelievable mess. There is constant management change from Europe and they always manage to get the wrong people. They have managing directors with no experience and they have no clue on how to run a company in the US. They seem to think it is all drinking, partying and getting frequent flyer miles. They have management employees who create a hostile work environment and nepotism from a managing director. In the past they have hired convicted prostitutes and felons and they have constant turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you hire normal people for your management team.

    Management could do a better job at being on the floor with employees.
