    Excellent employer

    Associate Mechanical Engineer (Current Employee)
    Burns Harbor, IN

    ProsThe benefits package is second to none and there is a lot of room for advancement in a large company such as ArcelorMittal. Great internship and new hire program. Opportunity for very diverse work responsibilities.

    ConsSome areas of the steel making process are dirty work environments. The union environment is not always ideal for productivity and good business relationships.

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

    The company has many good people working for it, but important decisions seem to be made for political reasons.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    East Chicago, IN

    ProsGood people, good growth opportunities, tons of options for learning and development, both online and in a classroom setting, excellent health benefits.

    ConsVery poor communication, patchwork computer systems, very poor relationship with the union, poor negotiating skills, aging facilities, promotions seems random, little to no planning for anything to go wrong when things always go wrong.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFind and promote the people who consistently try to do what's best for the company, not just work to make themselves look good.

    overwhelmingly dissatisfied with time invested in company

    Manager (Current Employee)
    East Chicago, IN

    Prosyou will see all aspects of the business should you elect to get involved or not. Early on you will see how depts interact to get the business of making steel done. Once participating in the chaotic environment, it will seem overwhelming and you will either sink or swim to keep up with what you perceive to be the way the business world must operate. So you will knuckle down and show that you can swim with the best of them, learning along the way about the industry. This is where the good stops.

    Consthen one day you will wake up and wonder where the last X years have gone. Certainly not unique to ArcelorMittal, but this is your reward nonetheless. You'll begin to wonder why you now spend more time in MS Office and as every day drudges along, less time in the field doing what you love. This is not the company for the person who wants decisionmaking at the ground level.

    Advice to Senior Managementtheres not enough horsepower at the ground level to deliver everything you demand.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
