Novelis, Atlanta Corporate Office
Company culture on paper made for great ad and media. Unfortunately, if you are not part of upper management, then you are on the outside looking in. However, during my tenure, the company culture was in the midst of creating their culture, organizing media exposure and forging a path in Atlanta.
Support from management
I was not given the opportunity to advance, despite requesting several times to take classes that in my opinion would help the department.
Definitely a man's world. The few female leaders were not really the movers and shakers, the decision makers. I believe there was an attempt to create a balance but true leadership should foster mentorship and leading by example. A great leader can bring about change, excitement and loyalty.
Attitude towards older colleagues
The company did not discriminate against age.
Sadly, that was NOT a part of the culture.
Overall compensation for your work
Benefits were offered, salary was not quite commiserate with the industry standards. I feel minorities were not given the same opportunities, pay advances nor training. This is inclusive of women, and/or certain nationalities.
Unfortunately the image does not reflect reality.
Very unstable place of employment. Several layoffs in the last 1.5 years.
Building is accessible.
Very safe. The company tom great measures to ensure employees were in a safe environment.
Inclusive / Diverse
Not a diverse company. IN my opinion diversity in the workplace was secondary to profit/margin. Given better leadership, I believe the company would have been a better place to work and grow.
Suggestions for improvement
- Better communication from leadership. Advancement within; stable environment.
What I like about the company
Alot of benefits that are not industry standard, which is a plus.
What I dislike about the company
Leadership and opportunities for advancement.
