    Pros

    The people are good to work with. The benifits are good and the company's financial security is very solid. It is a technology forward thinking company.

    Cons

    The organization structure is currently filled with too many vertical layers, and thus the lower-end salaried positions become the work horses without the recognition or compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Align the organization correctly. Compensate employees based on job performance and not seniority only. Define metrics which acheive the overall business unit goals instead of pinning them against one another.


  2. Only good thing is the salary.

    Pros

    Good compensation, received a signing bonus . Very competitive benefits including heathcare and vacation time. Not much else positive to say besides the pay, which isn't enough for the work you are expected to perform.

    Cons

    Long hours in filthy, noisy, and dangerous working conditions. I usually averaged 11+ hour days, often with no time given for lunch. Not somewhere where it is easy to move up. I interviewed for and was offered an engineering position in their tech center but on the first day of work was told it was now electrical maintenance on their strip mill. There is a giant disconnect between production/maintenance and corporate/HR. Very unfriendly and hostile environment, especially the union workers who have it in for any salaried employee, even so far as to purposely breaking equipment, endangering employees, etc. Management always looks at it with a blind eye to avoid union problems, which only encourages further abuse and harassment.

    Advice to Management

    Terry L. Dunlap is only in his position because he married the daughter of the former owner of the company. He is completely unqualified, both in respect to steel production as well as general business knowledge. Management needs to be closer to production and maintenance, instead they sit in their offices and implement misguided policies and programs and blame the support staff when it doesn't work.
