    Pros

    A very fair company. No union means no union dues and the company treats it's employees fairly and with a sense of respect. Good hours. Company issued personal protective gear including annual safety boots.

    Cons

    I am currently having some difficulty finding requirements for advancement to next operator level. This appears to be an issue with a number of employees not just myself. I intend to persue the matter, though, and expect that I will be able to get satisfactory results.

    Pros

    Many different industries from Rail, Utility Structures, Wind Towers, LPG (Liquid Propane Gas), Facilities and General Maintenance, Marine, and Highway Products. If it involves steel they make it. When one industry is going through a down period the other industries are booming - so it balances.

    Cons

    Opportunities to be promoted from within are very slim to non-existent. They usually hire from the outside for those positions.

    Advice to Management

    Consider promoting existing employees rather than looking to the outside.

    Pros

    Great benefits, good pay for someone WANTING to work. Management does care. Opportunity for advancement if you actually come to work everyday and do your job

    Cons

    Bad attitudes of hourly workforce. This runs off new hires which leads to very high turn over. Which feeds bad attitudes.

    Advice to Management

    Suck it up and reprimand bad behavior. Work on changing culture and making grown ups behave like grown ups.
