    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits. Many chances to serve the community and a fairly stable future. Good opportunities for growth in the right fields.

    Cons

    Limited respect for work_life balance. With a very flat management organization, the company has limited advancement opportunities. Unreasonable work expectations and little support of front line management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Suggest focusing on creating real development opportunities for new employees and implement changes to new provide opportunities for mid level managers.

    Pros

    Alright pay, alright benefits, not much experience necessary, don't have to be the sharpest nail in the box to fit in and will give you good experience on how not to act as a manager.

    Cons

    The company actually believes that employees should not be promoted, should only get a 3% raise max (only if company is making a profit) no matter how good of a job you do and they give you an unrealistic matrix to meet to get that. You will have to have 30 years service to move up one level on the corporate ladder (if they don’t hire someone from outside the company for the job). US Steel does not pay employees as if they are an asset but treat them as they are a liability. This company is like working at a dead end job with no future other than a good pension after 30 to 40 years (if you can stand the dirty, the dusty, the heat, the cold, the stinky environment, morally abusive management, unethical management, and all the rest of the BS the company pushes that isn’t true.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    US Steel employs a lot of very talented workers but for some reason will not pay them for what their worth. (e.g. if an employee is very good at running a operation rather than to pay that employee a couple of extra dollars per hour they will hire someone and pay them $50,000 a year to someone with no experience and no idea of what they’re doing for some reason) Get up with the times on your management style, it is not 1920 anymore threaten someone with their job every day is not going to make them very productive. Why is it so hard for the upper management to see that? A hostile work environment is not a safe work environment?
