    Lay offs Strict Performance Reviews No Flex Time Work Weekends & On Call 24/7 Little Work Life Balance No professionalism - cussing and yelling is accepted Company cell phone is to be with you at ALL TIMES! You are owned by the company but compensated well.

    Advice to Management

    Consider changing the old regime. Add flex time and other new management styles. Praise people for their hard work and say thank you

    Pros

    The pay is ok. The benefits are the main reason to work here currently.

    Cons

    Managers are horrible at dealing with employees (IE- no people skills), the benefits package will probably be changed with the next contract and will be far less competitive, and the equipment we use is outdated and in many cases, antiques.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to deal effective with your employees. Respect will go a long way in raising productivity!

    Good pay, most jobs you get to work in peace with minimal supervision, great health insurance benefits

    Cons

    Shaky industry. No telling if you'll have a job from one year to the next.

    Pros

    As a Process Control Engineer, the job was excellent. Great learning experience for an entry level employee. I worked mostly 8-4:30 Monday through Friday schedule. I went on-call once a month as well. Very flexible schedule.

    Cons

    The steel industry is a volatile industry. It changes on a month to month basis and is heavily depended on the oil industry. Also, the direction of the USS changes very rapidly. Sometimes for the better, sometimes for the worse.

    Pros

    Good work life balance, great location, flexible with doctor appointments, things that come up with your children and the vacation time is a good amount compared to other companies

    Cons

    Hard to move up, management plays favorites, people are rude and when you tell management about it they tell you its "their personality." The worst people you could think that would advance in the company do.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to evaluate each person based on performance and advance them that way not basing it on favoritism.

    Pros

    Decent salary, good benefits, and good bonuses (if you can get one)

    Cons

    Typically hazardous environment for a steel mill, also worked with dangerous chemicals (i.e. chrome six), rotating schedule that has been statistically shown to knock years off your life.

    Advice to Management

    Continue cost saving efforts, reward those who use their ingenuity, and do more analysis of various processes and operations to optimize profitability.
