    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?

    Did I say benefits?

    The only real benefits is money. Your degree wont mean much, because they will stick you wherever they need you. An electrical engineer can very easily be placed in a shift supervisory position. beware.

    Cons

    Lots of overtime
    Dirty and unhealthy work environment
    Stressful politics
    Zero tolerance attendance policy
    They will move you form plant to plant -- job to job -- at their whim
    They do not care about family lives
    The managers are "against" the hourly
    Shift work
    Equipment old and falling apart
    They do not promote through the ranks; they hire from the outside for management
    For this company, you are definitely a number
    NO job satisfaction

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat managers better, promote from within the ranks, and bring some professionalism to the company.
