    Pros

    Nucor's nature highly emphasizes safety, quality, waste reduction, productivity, and innovation making it one of the worlds top steel organizations

    Cons

    Through my experiences at Nucor, I cannot recall any cons due to their desire and ability to continuously improve every facet of their business in order to meet or exceed customer requirements.

    Advice to Management

    Provide me with an opportunity to contribute to Nucor's success as a valuable employee.

    Pros

    Good profit sharing. If they like you, good raises.

    Cons

    Vacation time could be a lot better. If they don't like you, they write you up until you can get fired or until you get the point and leave.

    Advice to Management

    Politics just hurts the company.

    Pros

    Honestly the only pro I can say is they make you more aware of safety issues.

    Cons

    Without sounding immature and being completely honest the place is terrible depending on the location. You will see some very happy people in the above reviews , but that's only because there location is run well. Some of the cons are vacation time could be better, no sick time at all, and the Biggest one is they have way to much control over your money. You will work tons of overtime and it won't be anything like you are used to. Time and a half sure but it all depends how the plant is running. I found myself working 60 plus hours a week and my over time for most of it was 15.60 a hour because the production hours did not exceed 45 hours. I never saw my family and I couldn't even be proud to take home a huge paycheck. The over time sucks! Also don't let them full you when it comes to the good life they all talk about. They will talk nucor up to be the best place to work and you will be very disappointed. This review is not just my opinion every single person I made friends with there felt the same way. It was really a sight to see. Every lunch break no one talked , not because we didn't like each other but because we were all on job search websites! Anyway I have a great job now at a great place and if you decide to work there that's on you but after 1 week when you hate it, and you will go back and read this review. Told you so!

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying! Take responsibility for your bad decisions and stop putting them on the little people. Start truly caring about your employees safety and well being. Get with the times!!! Not a single sick day lol . Production really what's this Russia in the 1960s. Start promoting people who deserve it!

    Pros

    Good work/life balance (normally). Great people to work with. When the market is good the paychecks are great. Very safety conscious.

    Cons

    Very market driven. When the orders for steel aren't there then your paycheck reflects that. You do not have a consistent pay amount from week to week so budgeting becomes a challenge. Medical plan isn't as good as you would think a company of this size should have.

    They work a lot of hours when they are busy and your family doesn't see you. Promotions are based on who you know not what you know

    Pros

    Nucor Steel is a versatile steel plate manufacturing company. They value their team members and provide necessary training to enhance your abilities. The shift work is excellent working 4 days and then 4 days off between shifts alternating between day and night.

    Cons

    Coverage is required all the time so when a team member takes vacation another team member must take the shifts. You can easily work 6 days straight and possibly more if their is training held on a off day. Bonus pay fluctuates based on production and the market.

    Advice to Management

    Minimize training held during off days.
