well paid but little respect

Maintenance Repair (Current Employee)
Butler, PA

I have been working at AK Steel Holding Corporation full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGood pay for not having a college degree

ConsHarsh environment, shift work, employees input not valued

Advice to Senior ManagementWith a mature workforce ( average 20+ years) there is a lot of experience to draw from. Unfortunately because of the finger pointing atmosphere, many are afraid to try new ideas that may help the company. There is always the threat of "corrective action" if something is done wrong or if a mistake is made
