    Pros

    Large steel manufacturing enterprise with a global reach. Many projects on the go, keeps you busy and lots of training available to learn. Depending on your area of expertise you can develop your career and move within the company even if it includes relocation to another country. Some great Co - workers, people very much focused on doing their job and growing thr company.

    Cons

    Hiring and promotion is based on time served within the corporation rather than area of expertise. As a result confusion reins because you have people who are good people placed in the wrong position and leading with wrong mentality. North American IT is being run mostly by non - IT folk who have no clue how to run an IT enterprise and are therefore focused on numbers than developing people and technology. A bully mentality is the order of the day. Work to life balance though touted everywhere within the company is a complete galaxy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire managers for their expertise and allow people to grow. The place has way too many processes and it affects progress big time. People working out of frustration and fear will not give you good results in numbers but not the best production.
