    I have been working at Nucor full-time (more than 8 years)


    Great pay for those who work production. Production bonus allows individuals who don't even have a high school education to make six figures a year. This is a highly respected company in the area. Small employee incentives like profit sharing, insurance and educational assistance are very good. Low management structure and the ability to make decisions at the supervisor and manager level are rare in this type of industry.


    Education doesn't mean anything. Those who work tradiitional professional roles (Engineers, Human Resources, etc) and have worked hard for a degree are paid half of what production roles pay.The company hires most professional roles straight out of college due to pay and lack of negotiation on benefits. These professionals work for the company for awhile until they get some experience and go elsewhere or move into a production role.

    Don't be expected to be listened to if you aren't at the management level either. Communication and decisions are made without consulting those who will be affected the most. Laziness is not addressed and the solution to this is to hire more people. This is killing Ken Iverson's vision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-read Ken Iverson's book, espeicilly the part about political influences. Some managers are never seen because they are doing things that don't even concern Nucor directly. Stop trying to hide things from your team and let them be involved in decision making, even if it involves bad news. Allow employees to be involved in the decision making process. Don't avoid the issue and address it directly.

    Negative Outlook
