Don 't drink the koolaid

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at ArcelorMittal USA

Prospays well if you are experienced and can negotiate it upfront. Entry level and interns are treated very well, better than those that have been there for a few years.

ConsPoor management, cares nothing about employees' personal or professional development. HR will flat out lie to you when they say you have all kinds of opportunity to move into different positions. Once you are in a department, that's where you stay. Do not disagree with management, or make suggestions, you will be labeled a problem employee and a troublemaker. Union runs the place, management has no backbone and they will not stand behind you. Sinking ship,stay away.

Advice to Senior ManagementNo hope, this place is on its way out.

Hollywood couldn't better portray a more toxic culture.

Business Analyst (Current Employee)
Burns Harbor, IN

I have been working at ArcelorMittal USA full-time for more than a year

ProsMost people are genuine and do care for others. You also learn a lot about the steel industry.

Cons*There is little to no room for advancement within the company, HR will tell you differently during the recruiting process (please note: they will blatantly lie about everything of importance during the recruiting process).
*There's an exceptionally high turnover rate especially among young people due to the culture, work/life balance,etc. Most leave within 2 years.
*Engineering receives final word on everything so tension is high and the efficiency of the material through the pipeline is poor, very poor
*Equipment is very old and resources are scarce so no improvements have been or will be made
*The oldest technology and methods I've ever seen, union environment so positive change is thwarted
*Never able to accomplish anything due to bureaucracy and others circumventing implementation because they're fearful of change and/or someone else receiving praise
*Seniority rules the day so old, obsolete methods also rule, more credibility is received as you're there longer (other manufacturing companies encourage new perspectives and company changes every 2-4 years for this very reason (new outlooks))
*Legacy steel companies which were once rivals have all been merged so conflict is rampant
*Old-boy network based on legacy company is also rampant, everyone else is immediately an outsider
*Have lost money in 4 consecutive quarters

Advice to Senior ManagementI don't envy those who have to guide the direction of this sinking ship (down).

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

Accounting and Finance at ArcelorMittal USA

Financial Analyst (Current Employee)
East Chicago, IN

I have been working at ArcelorMittal USA full-time for more than 3 years

ProsVery little work load, typical work week 40 hours maximum and usually less than that, overall employees are all great individuals

Consno career path, incompetent managers, promotions are based solely off age (golden age is 35), lack of challenging work, consistently left in the dark by managers, average age of employee is 55 or older, turnover, especially for young employees, is very very poor,

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement is a skill, not a line drawn in the sand that you pass when you reach a certain age. Recruit more local candidates and avoid recruiting from large universities outside of the area.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
