    Completely and solely profit driven, less emphasis on customer service/satisfaction

    Sales (Former Employee)
    Kansas City, MO

    ProsCan make good money if you are commited and work with the right people.

    ConsFew opportunities for women to get into mgmt positions, short term focus, decisions seem to be made a quarter at a time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you are doing, my current employer is benefiting from your bad decisions, lol.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great review...laid off a month later

    Finance Analyst (Former Employee)
    Kansas City, MO

    ProsGood benefits and pay, opportunity for travel, some people seemed to have a lot of access to promotions. Tuition reimbursement was excellent.

    ConsBluescope is completely numbers driven organization. When the company had one bad quarter, 300 people were cut. Everything there was about maintaining stock price, no long-term thinking at all.

    Advice to Senior ManagementImprove training, respect the employees, and provide long term value to shareholders rather than using lazy tricks to satisfy commission driven analysts.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good environment

    Project Engineer (Current Employee)
    Memphis, TN

    ProsIt has best work environment. It has balanced work load. They have good management and some very nice people to work with.

    ConsThis is after all a manufacturing company and recently there has been lots of plant close and layoffs but some of the work is being outsourced

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo not outsource technical job related work and do not let people go due to short term dip in the revenue

    BlueScope Steel : A Great Place to Work

    Power Equipment Operator (Former Employee)
    Saint Joseph, MO

    ProsExtreme professionalism, very employee safety minded, tops in it's field, This is a growing business and shows evidence of continual growth and security.

    ConsDue to seasonal peaks of production, overtime is abundant during periods of personal family activity outside of the workplace thus limiting quality family time.

    Best Place I have ever worked - I stayed for 16 years.

    Operations Manager (Former Employee)
    Melbourne (Australia)

    ProsFantastic safety culture, not just lip service.
    Great career development but it does take a while to get noticed.
    Wages and conditions excellent but hve dropped off in post GFC world.

    Consredundancies and restructure is a common divide of teams and businesses.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep trying to save a fantastic Australian company, I hope that you have enogh talent left to make it a reality.

    Very good company to work for and now back on track

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Melbourne (Australia)

    ProsStrong operationally as well as safety first attitude to everyone that has contact with the organisation. Hard working team has lifted the company from a difficult and challenging global downturn. Pay is at the upper end of the scale.

    ConsTo a degree the focus on cost control over the long term is a drain on morale and best practice. As with many company's dealing swiftly with underperfomers can be an issue.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work in turning the company around and open the door to good people even if a few extra dollars is required.

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