    The TRUTH

    Engineering (Current Employee)

    ProsSTABLE COMPANY and Affordable Healthcare

    ConsLack 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 Senior ManagementNeed to be more Transparency

    Excellent company - treats people will. Great benefits. Firm believer of a fair days wage for a fair days work.

    Manager, Quality Control and Technical Services (Current Employee) Baltimore, MD

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

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementCut 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.

    Pffftttt

    Engineering (Former Employee) Columbus, OH

    ProsIf 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.

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementAn employee need not be Catholic to be talented and worthy of promotion.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A great place to work. Solid value system that places emphasis on people.

    Middle Management (Former Employee) Malvern, PA

    ProsMy 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.

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