    I have been working at Alcoa full-time (more than 3 years)


    Very competitive compensation package at above market rates (resources industry), all the more so because commutable from Perth. Western Australian refineries are a great learning experience for younger engineers. Great lifestyle - one of the few corporates that truly value work-life balance.


    Alcoa's pros are also it's biggest con - with such an attractive combination of compensation and lifestyle, no-one leaves. This in turn means a lack of promotion opportunities for younger staff and a very slow promotion rate. Holistically, the aluminium market is going through some tough times and represent a challenging environment to the company globally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many of your bright talent coming through the graduate ranks are leaving - more needs to be done in terms of talent management and retention.

    Interview process took months from application to offer. It had been months since I'd submitted an application and I'd forgotten that I'd applied when I received a call to sit for an interview.
