    I have been working at ArcelorMittal USA (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    ArcelorMittal has provided me with a great and diverse experience. Over the last six years I have been provided a number of opportunities to work in different areas and gain a lot of exposure to make me a more, well-rounded professional in my field. While these moves were lateral, the benefit of the development is priceless.
    The company offers competitive salaries and total compensation packages. Additionally, I was able to take advantage of their Tuition Reimbursement benefit which is one of the best I have ever seen (up to $24,000 per year!).
    I am motivated by my the people I get to work with every day and have maintained a very healthy work-life balance which is very valuable to me.

    Cons

    ArcelorMittal is still working to accomplish a single "culture." As the Company is the largest in the world, and with numerous across just the USA, the experience at each facility can be completely different.

    Pros

    Very good company to work for, good hourly rate of pay and many benefits. Company of the future in steel making.

    Cons

    Possibly shift work and weather conditions. Along with doubles after a note turn. Scheduled that might require me to work holidays. Working a six day work scheduled

    I have been working at ArcelorMittal USA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Ample mobility and opportunity to work different types of jobs. A new employee can easily learn all about how the plant runs from other salaried employees, or from more "front line" experience.

    Cons

    Company does not hire enough people to adequately fill roles. Working with the union is a challenge at best and an unessesary roadblock at worst.

    Advice to Management

    The company loses a lot of new engineers by immidiatly placing them in the shift manager role. This placement is often revealed last minute, and when accompanied by a short training period causes an extremely frustrating experience.

    I have been working at ArcelorMittal USA full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Love working in manufacturing, helping drive innovation in an environment that often suffers from lack of original thinking. Enjoy working on and leading cross-functional teams on a wide variety of endeavors (some projects, some extensive trouble-shooting). Global company that has many international opportunities for those interested in a career of that sort.

    Cons

    Unable to retain high-potential employees, retain employees that cause problems and disrupt the operation. Many employees are comfortable with the status quo and are not aware of the big picture and what's happening around them. Much of middle-management is subpar and the ones that are good are often shifted into and out of roles in favor of a system of cronyism that pervades the place.

    Advice to Management

    Reward good work and reward results-oriented people. Use positive reinforcement to get the behavior you want as opposed to punishing and bruising your employees for bad behavior you don't want to see. Treat all folks the same no matter where they are in the structure. Eliminate the cronyism and hire and promote those that are truly well-suited for the positions. Need to remember that people are the backbone and that you can't ride them into the dirt, not pay them for that, and expect them to stick around when they have options nearby.
