    I have been working at Aperam full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A company where you have the opportunity to grow and take on additional responsibilities, should you not be afraid of it. In transformation with a lot of potential. Employees are accountable for their areas of work in a matrix organisation, which provides a lot to learn especially since it is not so easy.

    Cons

    In transformation, so some areas may be a bit old fashioned and lack maturity in terms of processes, tools, competencies... I personally see this as an opportunity to improve.

    Advice to Management

    Go further in building an environment of trust and benevolence- so that people feel at ease to try and fail!

    I have been working at Aperam full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good salary, the company is big and has its goal to change

    Cons

    Too many political discussions, most of the managers don't really apply their management methodology (PRINCE 2), and they often take way too many projects and cannot really manage any of them.

    I have been working at Aperam full-time

    Pros

    People in Aperam are skilled and trustworthy which makes it an incredible experience to work here. The leadership is pretty clear and you usually know what you need to do without having to ask your manager. Management by trust: you will soon have decent responsibility to prove yourself. If you are doing good, your work will be compensated. A lot of new hirings who "refresh" the offices. There are a lot of great... managers in Aperam.

    Cons

    Still some processes that need actualization/update, coming from "old industry" (some HR/communication related processes)

    Advice to Management

    Promote internal mobility and career development. The company is dynamic but the new hiring spree risk to transform the "start-up" atmosphere.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Aperam full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    No high workload, lots of paid vacations

    Cons

    No clear strategy, no internal communication (everyone works in siloes and is fine with that), very few management skills in top leadership, very few progress to expect in benefits and in career. Evolution is mainly crossfunctional, very few promotion as the main workforce is about 45 years old and trust the "confortable" seats.

    Advice to Management

    Start refreshing leadership pool with people from the "outside world". Most of Aperam's employees have made their whole career in the company, especially top managers... This leads to a very restricted creativity and old-school management style.

    I have been working at Aperam

    Pros

    Aperam has for 2 years strong financial results thanks to a complete re-organization of its operations. The net debt is rapidly going down. Very strong experts

    Cons

    Aperam is a regional producer (Europe and South America) in a global competitive landscape.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend that the management should listen to your collaborators create a genuine culture of entrepreneurship
