I have been working at United States Steel full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

U. S. Steel is vital to the strength of manufacturing and to the U. S. We must have a strong mining and metals industry to have a strong country. U. S. Steel has the most recognizable brand in the... industry and is the low cost integrated mill at making liquid steel because of its mining and coke making capabilities. President Trump recognizes the impacts of unfairly traded steel and has been taking important actions to level the playing field with foreign countries. U. S. Steel is undergoing multi-generational transformation and will provide exceptional challenges and personal growth for those that are willing to dedicate themselves to superior performance.

Cons

Decades of unfairly traded steel in a highly cyclical industry create hyper-volatility in cash flows. This requires a more nimble cost structure with a USW that struggles with variable pay and a... culture that struggles to change. This business provides good wages and benefits but is not for those that are timid and don’t want to work hard. It’s very hard work everyday.

Advice to Management

Stay focused, committed on hiring and developing best talent and investing in upgrading assets to take advantage of a more fair business climate. Keep working hard to create a high performance... culture in an environment of fairness and respect. Providing more variable pay during this upturn with differentiated rewards based upon performance is recognized and is a welcome change. Continue to revitalize assets... employees deserve the best and customers expect it.
