I have been working at United States Steel

Pros

The pros are all about compensation is pretty good, good benefits (eye, dental, healthcare), matching 401k, old pension plan. Hours are ok. No required overtime.

Cons

Way too much paperwork. How anyone in the BSC gets anything significant done is amazing. Hell 5 years ago someone would call for help and we would just get it done. Now it takes 3 hours of paperwork and approvals to even start working on things. Ridiculous! The old time mainframers in Pittsburgh have pushed down their archaic standards on everyone else. Get with the times people!

Dirty, filthy, unprofessional work environment. Clean the place up! I should come to work and be proud to work there, not ashamed of what a pit the place is. We can't even give us janitorial service on a consistent basis. Really?

Advice to ManagementAdvice

This is 2010, not 1950. Run the company like you'd want it to be if you worked here. I think we need to clean house from top to bottom and get rid of the useless managers that are around. Promote people that do a good job, promote union workers who know what's going on. Stop the nepitism. Do not promote the uselss ones that you don't know what to do with. Fire incompetent people. Stop micro-managing everyone. If you give someone some responsibility, have some confidence in them to do things right. If not, why did you give them the extra responsibility? The company really has a lot of talented people that put in a lot of effort. Let's start rewarding those people.

Finally, clean the place up. Pave the damn roads in the plant. Just because it's a steel mill doesn't mean everything has to be falling apart and filthy.

    Pros

    Benefits and pay are good. The hours are a little untolerable, but if you can deal with that the pay is worth it

    Cons

    Management is horrible. They treat workers with disrespect and there is a constant fear of losing your job, this is also due to the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please start to implement new age business practices. Carnegie ran the company a long time ago and it's time to get into the 21st century.
