    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People who work hard to help the company achieve success should betaken care of and valued.
    Stop the favoritism in the work place.
    Take care of those who go above and beyond to help the process not those who golf or go to lunch with you.
    When you talk about integrity, Employee Recognition, Being the Employer of Choice you should know what that means and practice it in the plant not on paper.

    Pros

    Covered parking and close to International Mall and Ybor City.

    Cons

    Gerdau preaches that their employees are like "family". From my personal experience unless you are a Gerdau manager you are not family and will be terminated without notice or cause. If I were just an employee or contractor I would definitely NOT work for this company as there is no future or possibility of promotion. Also you may want to practice what you preach in regards to treating people like family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review you current management skill sets and your skill sets before firing technical individuals and hiring more management.
