I have been working at AK Steel Holding Corporation full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Good pay for not having a college degree

Cons

Harsh environment, shift work, employees input not valued

Advice to ManagementAdvice

With a mature workforce ( average 20+ years) there is a lot of experience to draw from. Unfortunately because of the finger pointing atmosphere, many are afraid to try new ideas that may help the company. There is always the threat of "corrective action" if something is done wrong or if a mistake is made

    I have been working at AK Steel Holding Corporation full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    In my current position, job flexibility is great but be prepared to put the time in (and extra time) when required / expected. The health benefits are excellent - I have stayed with the company for much longer than desired because of these benefits.

    Cons

    Militant safety program - don't trip or you'll be sent out for a drug test. Management doesn't value employee experience at all (if you won't do it, they'll find someone else who will). The company treats the hourly employess like they're idiots.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit worrying about you 'executive compensation' and pay the people who actually do the work. How many VPs and executive VPs does a company need?
