    Large company with a bright outlook

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ConsBeing 1 of 230,000 employees. Easy to get lost in the mix. Lots of red tape.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement is great.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good place for starting your career, not ending!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsFlexible work environment, decent pay and benefits, great people (engineers) to work with.

    ConsWork location and travel commute to the manufacturing plants can be burdensome. The industry can be a dangerous place to work for some. Sometimes the work is not very challenging.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay more attention to find ways to satisfy the young engineers. Keep them challenged and encouraged in the industry.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Good initial, but dirty and dangerous work, treat employees poorly

    Process Engineer (Former Employee)
    East Chicago, IN

    ProsPay was good, but may stagnate quickly

    ConsYou will often be treated with disrespect, and getting yelled at is part of the company culture. About half the people in my hire group and half of the supervisors quit within two years. I specifically asked in all my interviews what the standard work day was like, and was met with dodgy answers. My standard work day was from 6-4, and frequently had to stay past then. You may be subject to rotating shifts (they did not mention any of that in the interview process).

    Their safety record is not good; OSHA injury rate is significantly over industry averages

    Advice to Senior ManagementI have little advice other than do not work here.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good projects for interns. Great internship program

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsLots of work to be done. Many opportunities to move up. Some really great people to work with.

    ConsThey contract out pretty much everything. Lack of people in the right places.
    Many systems need to be brought into modern times although this takes time

    Advice to Senior ManagementModernize the mills to make them more efficient (although this takes money that isnt there)

    Very international culture, very globally dispersed, very disorganized / wasteful, very powerful

    Customer Service Representative (Former Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsBrand recognition
    Interact with workforce from poland, romania, czech republic, france, luxembourg, india, venezuela, brazil, china... you name it
    Very close to the world market movers

    ConsStill complicated due to $32B merger many years ago
    Forced rationalization always comes too little, too late
    Indebted company, "junk" status

    Advice to Senior ManagementCut out some of the tectonic layers of non-operations middle management ("technical advisors")
    Get rid of the centralized system for SAP administration and logistics chartering
    Stop flooding the domestic US market with lower quality material

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
