    I worked at RG Steel full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Promised to keep the mill open and increase productivity.

    Cons

    Instead of focusing on how to improve our production they focused on issues where we had very few problems and The new (hired or brought in) by RG Steel managers did not know what they were doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too late - They shut down a Money Making Steel Mill they promised to improve. thousands lost good paying jobs and then the RG Steel Management tried to give themselves 20 million in bonus monies?
