Smart contractors are enemies

Software Developer (Former Employee)
Lisle, IL

I worked at SSAB Svenskt as a contractor for less than a year

ProsNice location, free parking, cubicles made for privacy

ConsDual monitors are mystery to them. Machines are not most up to date, no SSD drives for developer to do quick compilations.

Very stressful and strict atmosphere, although they are ok with small talk between employs.
Because the company's roots of business are manufacturing, no flexible hours, everybody must clock in and clock out (by HID readers)

If you are smart you may get into argument with employees, they will not value that, rather treat you as an enemy. If they require 5 years experience and you will have only 3 go work for them.

Advice to Senior ManagementUse the resources that you pay for

SSAB Production Operator Primary End Montpelier, Iowa

Production Operator (Former Employee)
Montpelier, IA

I worked at SSAB Svenskt full-time for more than 10 years

ProsFinancial Compensation, Health and Medical Benefits

ConsThe Employee is very restricted in regards to upward mobility and professional growth. The Management is untrustworthy and abusive. The Workforce is intimidated and submissive. The Management Style and the Hiring Practices are discriminative and nepotistic. I wasted ten plus years here only to get older, nothing more.

Advice to Senior ManagementHere’s my advice. If you want the company to grow, you must allow growth within the workforce. Allow employees to move up and encourage a professional development plan. Introduce a qualification strategy for the employee to obtain higher income or higher positions of responsibility. Give the workforce personal feedback. Don't hire your relatives, it is called nepotism! Treat all employees with respect, don’t bully them into submission. Trust the workforce. Promote and hire actual supervisors not (relatives or favorites), so if a conflict arises it can be handled properly and without discrimination. Just because the company pays well does not mean the management can be abrasive and abusive to the workforce. After ten plus years I left and found better working conditions.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
