    I have been working at United States Steel (More than a year)

    Pros

    The only pro is the pay. There is nothing else good about US Steel.

    Cons

    The hours are endless. You can expect 10 hrs on a normal day and I have seen people work up to 48 without going home. The union employees have a since of entitlement and blame everything on the management. Management is slow to react and spends all of their time fighting fires. Don't work here.

    Pros

    Good time to be part of this company. The transformation is in full swing and the business is done is changing for the better.

    Cons

    It is very early yet in the transformation. Old ways are deeply entrenched and difficult to change. Pace of change is slow.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course and keep engaging your employees in positive ways.

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits for the time being. This will change at contract negotiations in September.

    Cons

    HORRIBLE MANAGEMENT. Company focuses way too much on education and not on actual competency. Clueless managers across the board.

    Advice to Management

    Step down from jobs that you know you aren't qualified for.

    Pros

    Pays well with good benefits for entry level positions. Opportunity to advance in some areas, operations management.

    Cons

    Unreasonable expectations for work life balance. Very divided in culture between corporate and industrial aspects. Corporate culture is very professional while the operations culture is crude, unprofessional and abhorred. Company preaches diversity and inclusion but frequently the industrial climate fosters a more "traditional" outlook. "You work in a mill, you better grow thick skin" mentality. Front-line management is treated very poorly, borderline illegal work expectations are put into place and managers are held unreasonably accountable for things beyond their control.

    Advice to Management

    Fix your company. It's failing for a reason.

    I worked at United States Steel full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It's an older company that has had a lot of potential with deep pockets and market share. The Carnegie way can help with the correct buy in.

    Cons

    Keeping the good ole boy network in full affect. The typical weak management applies here. Whipping the horse that pulls hardest. Won't train employees in their box and hold them accountable after three months of training. Won't survive with their good ole network and tight night b.s. like they have in lorain.

    Advice to Management

    I don't think they would listen to any advice. There has become a major new established club there and I don't see that changing.

    Pros

    The company has good starting pay, higher than most and the benefits are commendable.

    Cons

    management style; egos, lack of vision for the future

    Advice to Management

    learn to communicate and take the time to teach someone. stop throwing lower management under the bus because you can't make a sound decision without having a scape goat.
