    Pros

    Excellent organization to work for, share in the profits, good salary, plenty of room for advancement, basically left alone to lead and get the job done

    Cons

    Advancements may come by re-locating to another division, it's not a 9 to 5 job

    Pros

    Great Salary, Excellent focus on safety

    Cons

    Company philosophy is beginning to change, and in my opinion, for the worse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More autonomy out in the mill. Allow and encourage people to make decisions, right or wrong. People learn more from making a wrong decision than having all of their choices made for them. People should have the right to fail.

    I am truly empowered to do my job. I receive plenty of training. The benefits are great. There is limitless potential. And, the pay is great your division does its job well!

    I worked at Nucor as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The people I was working with were really great. They really cared about making my internship experience as good as it could be.

    Cons

    The internship program isn't very structured. I basically had to find my own project to work on while I was there, which was fine, but if you don't look for something to do you could very easily just be a shadow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just have a little better structure for the interns and have actual projects for them to work on.
