    The TRUTH

    Current Employee - Engineering
    Current Employee - Engineering

    Pros

    STABLE COMPANY and Affordable Healthcare

    Cons

    Lack of Transparency, Communication and very covertly Political the company Lean approach is a extreme to the point any employee terminate they try to pull or fabricate the reason to be misconduct so the employee would not receive Unemployment.

    Current employee are scared of new and younger employee's who bring new ideas. The old employee don't like or accept changes easy. Company often over work people in certain roles where there is no work and home balance at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to be more Transparency

    Pros

    I would recommend employment at Worthington Industries to any of my friends for family members.

    Cons

    They live and die by numbers which can be skewed at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut down on the Micro-management and let the people (most important asset) do what needs to be done. That's the best way to build Trust.

    Pros

    My time working at a division of Worthington Industries was very satisfying. I spent approximately 14 years working with them, and had continious opportunity to develop professionally, and personally. I feel that their value system created an exceptional place to work, and I would recommend this company to any of my children who were looking for employment.

    Cons

    Some of the divisions work long hours. This company is steeped in tradition, and at times it held back progress. From what I have heard, since my departure, WI has moved past this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the focus on the people and the Worthington Philosophy. This existing focus has created a great place to work which is somewhat unique today. .

    Pros

    If you are a member of the Catholic church you can do well here.
    Unfortunately, many good people still work there. Fortunately, some still remember the founder and his principles. As is usually the case, it's too bad the acorn did not fall a little closer to the tree.

    Cons

    If you are not Catholic, do not waste your time here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    An employee need not be Catholic to be talented and worthy of promotion.
