    I worked at Commercial Metals full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with and good culture to work within.

    Cons

    Seem to be a bit click-ish. Promotions of friends over performance and in fact have lost senior employees due to that fact. Stagnant job growth and medial wages. Difficult/dirty work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promotions should be based on performance and results and not if someone is your friend.

    I have been working at Commercial Metals full-time

    Pros

    Outside of corporate, there are some really good people that work for this company.

    Cons

    Definitely a good old boy network. HR is a joke and does not assist employees! No career path. Knowledge is not valued. They want you to do as you are told and not think! I would think very hard before coming here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In the global world we live in, you cannot afford to allow discrimination run rampant. Not unless you are looking to be left behind!

    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.
