    Started out great but now it just seems to keep getting worse and worse.

    I have been working at Severstal North America full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay, Benefits. That's about it....

    Cons

    Incompetent supervision. Some supervision who helped in running Rouge Steel into bankruptcy got to keep their job to try to run this one in the ground as well.
    Atmosphere. Company likes to think that supervision work hand in hand with hourly but its worse then its ever been.
    Health. Too many people have health issues as they get older. Its a very dirty environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the company from the bottom up. Too many times does supervision outsource jobs that can be done for a fraction of the cost. We have thrown 100's of 1000's of dollars in the drain because supervision would rather outsource a job then do it in house.... Even after its been reported it still seems like no one cares about this.

    Pros

    401k employer contributions are comparable/competitive.
    Lots of smart people around so that means amazing place source of knowledge and information. There are enough people that care about the work that they do so we still have quality products.

    Cons

    Attitudes are very toxic, due to years of "punishment" working at company where management and upper management never communicate real issues with owner in order to solve real problems. In short there is major disconnect up the food chain after issues are taken to management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the consider the people that work for you when making decisions. Put yourselves in our shoes, literally come out for one week and get involved in the process so that you can see what the employees deal with everyday.Learn more about what the people in each department does by actually being there next to them.
