US Steel

  • Comp & Benefits
  • Work/Life Balance
  • Senior Management
  • Career Opportunities
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Pittsburgh, PA
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Pittsburgh, PA

Pros

The benefits are great, in my opinion. The managers also allow for a great work life balance.

Cons

In town, which is not so bad but inconvenient. Very corporately structured and nothing can be accomplished without some type of bureaucratic process.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give less experienced employees more opportunity to grow, and compensate for that growth. There seems to be a mentality that unless employees have 15+ years experience, their ability to move up within the organization is very limited.

    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?
