    Former Employee - Intern in Moscow, MS

    I worked at EVRAZ as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    great people - supportive and sociable;
    tasty food - you are given a card with a certain amount to pay for your food in a corporate canteen, this is a good bonus to friendly environment and salary;
    very well structured internship - permanent clear guidelines from HR department, i.e. you always know what you have to do and why you are doing this

    Cons

    low salary for the month of internship

    Pros

    Medical insurance paid for by Evraz along with other benefits such as wellness $300/year, fruit day once a week, and jeans on Fridays

    Cons

    Corporate values are well thought out but unfortunately not followed by the organization. Given the tough business conditions the environment is unpleasant with a big focus on short term goals over long term business focus. There is so much turnover (1/2 people a week quitting) which makes for an uneasy work atmosphere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow or scrap the company values.

    Pros

    Insurance first day - great views of the city

    Cons

    Looking for a place to have long lasting coworkers or retire from? This is not the place for you - looking for a place to work one day and be laidoff the next week? This IS the place for you? Management has no clue what they are doing or how bad the morale is as a matter of fact they don't even look or talk to you if you are not in their circle. Outdated accounting systems and the IT department can't help you either since they are walking around the office all day long talking to other people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move back to Portland

    Pros

    Great views of the lake and city
    Decent benefits

    Cons

    They provide a facade that there is upward mobility, but there is not. You are "pigeon-holed" from Day 1! The turnover rate is so high that there is no continuity, no friendliness amongst co-workers, and it feeds into just an overall "cold" atmosphere. Senior management repeatedly let down workers with broken promises. Work/life balance for certain positions was simply atrocious; upper management had no problem making people work during their "vacation." In particular, my manager was the most hypocritical manager I've ever had in my career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    End the hypocrisy, provide transparency/keep people informed, and give people there a reason to want to get out of bed every morning. Make Sean Deeson move back to Michigan; that guy is a real piece of work.

    I worked at EVRAZ full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good health care benefits
    Nice view of Lake Michigan

    Cons

    Horrible work/life balance
    There are politics at every company, but the worst I've ever seen in corporate America
    When they aren't firing people on a regular basis, the turnover rate is increasing at an insae rate
    Very little growth opportunities
    No financial systems whatsoever, all of the financials are linked together with unreliable Excel files
    Base salary used to be competitive with market but now below average
    Used to have really great bonuses, but now based almost entirely on the performance of the company, which has really taken a turn for the worse
    Upper management blames product group leaders instead of working together as a team to improve down market conditions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Replace upper management
    2. Focus on providing employees with work/life balance or compensation for excessive hours
    3. Financial System that works- hire an outside IT company to help implement the system
    4. Overall culture needs to be addressed (people shouldn't feel like everyday they walk in someone is quitting or getting fired)
