    I worked at ArcelorMittal

    Pros

    Brand recognition
    Interact with workforce from poland, romania, czech republic, france, luxembourg, india, venezuela, brazil, china... you name it
    Very close to the world market movers

    Cons

    Still complicated due to $32B merger many years ago
    Forced rationalization always comes too little, too late
    Indebted company, "junk" status

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut out some of the tectonic layers of non-operations middle management ("technical advisors")
    Get rid of the centralized system for SAP administration and logistics chartering
    Stop flooding the domestic US market with lower quality material

    Former Employee - Informaticien I in Port-Cartier, QC (Canada)

    I worked at ArcelorMittal as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good pay.
    Good co-workers.
    Can have a chance to work with people from different engineering backgrounds (electrical, mining, etc.)

    Cons

    The location is very far (from big cities like Mtl or Qc) at least, but it doesn't matter if you like small town life.
    The bureaucracy is pretty rigid, hard to get anything done.
    Very old technologies are still being maintained.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give employees more freedom to express their creativity.
    Invest in new technologies.
