I have been working at United States Steel

Pros

People seem to have an overall respect for one another as long as efforts are made to do what is expected. I really enjoy the process and am continually fascinated by the equipment.

Cons

Leadership at this facility is lacking. I personally prefer leaders that provide a clear vision as to where we need to be and a clear desciption of the current status.....

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give people a purpose and goal. Too many people here for a paycheck only and to stay out of trouble.

    Pros

    Good benefits, including Pension and excellent company match. Medical, dental, vision, and the cost to the employee is not bad.

    Cons

    Micro-managing manager level employees with multiple degrees
    Zero flexibility
    No such thing as work-life balance
    Force you to eat lunch at the cafeteria because nothing else is around
    Terrible work culture
    Expect people to dedicate lives to job with very little in return
    Very condescending management-believe you have to yell and fight to get anything accomplished
    Talks down to union employees
    Management feels the need to yell at everyone
    Very behind times with work-life balance (no flexible time, telecommuting, alternative schedules)
    Doesn't understand why anyone would ever want to leave company (most employees have been here at least 15 years).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get with the times!!! Offer more in terms of work-life balance. Don't expect work to be someone's life, many people work very long hours and shift for very little in return. Stop yelling at employees over minor issues and insisting that there is someone to blame other than yourself. Yelling accomplishes little and people tone you out eventually.

    Pros

    Very good health benefits, pension plan, and good pay. Also offer a 401k plan, with no company matching though. Nothing else really to speak of.

    Cons

    Shift work, no family life.
    Can be scheduled anywhere from 8-16 hour shifts at management's discretion.
    Zero tolerance attendance policy is ridiculous.
    Management always says it has the right to schedule us as needed. Hope you don't ever want to make plans!
    Never knowing what your schedule will be for the following week till 2 days before it starts.
    Very hostile environment from management, always using fear and intimidation.
    Doing anything they don't like results in a write up.
    Don't maintain equipment, but will spend money to paint everything but not fix any issues the production lines have.
    Safety is preached but is a complete joke. It is also a burden because some of it is just redundant and unnecessary. Often it is used against an employee as well.
    Accidents do happen U.S.Steel, not everything was because of a failure to recognize a hazard, that's not the basis for every accident that happens. "Employee was unaware of their surrounding." That's one the company loves to throw around as their fall back reason anytime they can't figure out a reason to directly blame the persons involved.
    Union and management relationship is not good.
    Too many good workers get treated unfairly while the one's who are worthless and sit around and do nothing for full turns or sleep get away with it constantly.
    Unless your an upper management, you will get treated like dirt.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring totally incompetent workers and managers. And try to treat employees like human beings, not robots. Happy employees are much more productive then those who are in constant fear of losing their jobs.
