    Lots of reorganization to adjust to changing business conditions.On the job learning is great. Consolidation creates opportunities. Competitive pay and benefits.

    I worked at Commercial Metals part-time

    Pros

    The work life balance from what I saw during my time there was pretty good. There wasn't much pressure to stay past regular hours. Workplace safety was also emphasized heavily during my time there which is never a bad thing.

    Cons

    The culture at the location I worked at was dead, everyone did their own thing and there wasn't much encouragement to spend time and socialize with coworkers. It was hard to feel motivated to accomplish anything for the company when I didn't feel any bond with the other people who worked there.

    Pros

    Fair compensation, good working environment, open communications are just a few of the reasons CMC was a good company to work for. They always had an eye for growth and weren't afraid to invest in needed infrastructure to get that done.

    Cons

    Earlier in the 2000's the company leadership was lacking but their ideas and direction were good. The culture was in need of changing and the route chosen to make those changes was flawed.
