    I have been working at ArcelorMittal Dofasco full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Very old people, so you get to learn a lot. Excellent upper management.

    Cons

    Working hours, vacation, FLEXIBILITY!!! Horrific flexibility. Weak business unit managers (not all, but a few pose a significant question to how they made it to their positions)

    Advice to Management

    Bring in an HR based succession planning system so that your companies promotions are not based on friendships & fishing trips (and etc.)

    I have been working at ArcelorMittal Dofasco full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Competitive wages, profit sharing, allotted time off based on continental shift work schedule, benefits, the people make or break this place

    Cons

    No benefits when your retire. Promote safety but the culture in Management requires real change to institute a better quality of work environment, sad part is how do you explain to management they are the real issue to reach the journey to zero. They promote only "Yes Men" making it hard to accomplish anything productive when they coddle them through Leadership Training not allowing them to make mistakes, long enough...

    Advice to Management

    They pretend like they want to hear what you have to say, recommending to "be the change" you want to see... They are what requires change for an improved, safe work environment. I have never worked at a place that hasn't the slightest clue on how to harness the abilities of employees willing to give up more than what they get paid for yet no idea on how to translate that into something productive or useful. Leaders don't...

    I worked at ArcelorMittal Dofasco full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Good culture amongst peers High degree of independence typically granted for technical roles Opportunities to move between projects(at same level)

    Cons

    Frequent conflicts in leadership, often seemed that concerns would never make it past immediate leadership and certainly never across to other departments Leadership typically non-technical or far removed from technical positions Extremely outdated technologies required even for creation of new projects

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees on their major concerns, management would always try to fix minor, but easy issues while ignoring major but difficult ones

    I worked at ArcelorMittal Dofasco full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    They have a profit sharing plan, and are very progressive company. Their Christmas party and July 1st Canada Day fireworks celebration is one of the best if not the best in Canada. The company is naturally attritioning because they have over 1000 employees with over 30 years service.

    Cons

    Their base salary is average, they have a variable compensation salary that works well when the company meets or exceeds targets in Health and Safety, Value Plan, EBITDA and customer service. What is hurting the company in the near term is beyond their control, that is the tariffs from the US. Also the steel industry is cyclical. If you can get through the next 5 years, they may be difficult. I rated it three stars...

    START PAYING ATTENTION TO THE REAL WORKERS YOUR LOSING THEM ALL FOR BONDS AND FRIENDSHIP MADE BY IGNIORANT GUYS WHO MOVE UP AND DONT REALLY CARE FOR THE COMPANY JUST TO GET PAID. NOT THOSE WHO WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE OR WHOM DESERVE IT.
