    Good initial, but dirty and dangerous work, treat employees poorly

    Process Engineer (Former Employee) East Chicago, IN

    ProsPay was good, but may stagnate quickly

    ConsYou will often be treated with disrespect, and getting yelled at is part of the company culture. About half the people in my hire group and half of the supervisors quit within two years. I specifically asked in all my interviews what the standard work day was like, and was met with dodgy answers. My standard work day was from 6-4, and frequently had to stay past then. You may be subject to rotating shifts (they did not mention any of that in the interview process).

    Their safety record is not good; OSHA injury rate is significantly over industry averages

    Advice to Senior ManagementI have little advice other than do not work here.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Slow and Old

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Woodstock, ON (Canada)

    ProsLarge global company - if in the right group you'll get exposed to a wide range of people and cultures.

    ConsThe company moves at a glacier's pace. No entrepreneurial spirit. Too many layers. No freedom to try anything even if you have market data to support.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry being "leaders" and "coaches" and not just strict managers.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Associate (Current Employee) Dąbrowa Górnicza (Poland)

    Pros-People are nice to work with
    -Polish are very professional
    -business culture is very flexible

    Cons-lots of confusion within company because it is going through a restructuring phase
    -if you came in for a specific position, you might not end up with the one you signed on to
    -people are too busy to explain things to you so you have to ask specific questions
    -training program not very good
    -management is very hypocritical- they say they are open and you can talk to them about anything, but they don't like to be told that they are wrong

    Advice to Senior Management-find a balance between extremely flexible working culture and a more structured one

    Prosexpatriation are widely available but locations are uninteresting. Opportunism may work short term. Steel is a great industry. facinating senior management

    Conspoor corporate culture. lack of social responsibility or committment. poor remuneration and bullied to accept salary cuts. untrustworthy company. positive impression happens only if company benefit from employee.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGood job to the senior management. facinating but followed by crowds of parasite. Change the corporate culture giving a benefit to indiuan passport. it will not work and kill the industrial tool.
