I worked at Gerdau Long Steel North America full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

International company that has a decent focus on career development and professional development. Good experience to understand the manufacturing process. Lots of exposure to different sides of the business.

Cons

Much of the decision making comes out of Brazil and they don't always understand the needs of the US market. It's a commodity manufacturer so there is no differentiation on products.

Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Gerdau Long Steel North America full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I received fair pay and had no problems receiving reimbursements during travel. I felt that their benefits were decent with the exception of holidays and vacation.

    Cons

    Unfortunately Gerdau lost me as an employee because I was tired of dealing with rude management who couldn't grasp good direction giving techniques.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more selective with the engineers you promote. People skills are important and lacking.
