    Forward-thinking, community involvement, employment development

    I worked at ArcelorMittal USA as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I liked nearly everyone I met and had the opportunity to work with. The union employees were easy to get along with and collaborate with. The facility is large and impressive, it is a very interesting place to work with interesting problems to solve.

    Cons

    Lack of capital money for improvements to update this very old facility.
    As an intern I got "babied" a lot, I guess this is to be expected but it seemed a little over the top.
    I half of the projects I worked on seemed to be made up to keep me busy as opposed to really contributing to necessary projects. This forced me to reach out to other managers and supervisors to find work to do.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time and money on new employee retention, you'll never keep young engineers if the work load and compensation is not on par with all of the other places we could go find employment.

    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.

    The days are never the same when you are working. There is a lot of interesting people there to work with.

    It's a very old and dirty enviornment. There is a huge gap between the union and salary workforce.

    Pros

    There is always something to be improved. You are able to make changes to the process for improvement. Potential to grow because people keep leaving.

    Cons

    Lately it feels like the management has taken better care of some segments than others. If you want to reduce headcount remove the underperformers and distribute part of the salary to those who are doing a good job.

    Advice to Management

    underperformers and distribute part of the salary to those who are doing a good job. Lots of good people are leaving and that is concentrating the amount of underperformers you have.

    Cons

    Limited opportunities for career growth
    Management does not value employees
    Reluctant of change and innovation

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to develop a strategy to retain their talented employees. Giving young professionals the opportunity to grow and advance would be a great start. The AMUSA branch that I work for has an aging work-force, so management should want to capture as much knowledge as possible before a lot of employees retire. The company needs to be more forward thinking and focus on employee satisfaction and moral.
