    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

    Pay is slightly above average. Usually plenty of overtime to be had. Excellent insurance and benefits at low employee cost. Advancement opportunities are there.

    Cons

    Very 'Clickish' environment. There is often friction between departments. A little too top-heavy (too many supervisors who each have their own agenda). Advancement is there and internal jobs are posted, but just for 'show' so that the illusion of fairness and parity is created, but the advancement is limited to the select few who are chosen before the job is even posted. If you can stomach an environment where back-stabbing and under-handed deals abound, then its worth the money. In the company's defense though, the situation is most likely no different than most large-scale operations. My advice to a prospective employee: Show up on time, do your job, and laugh at the supervisor's jokes around the smoking table outside - you'll go far!

    Advice to Management

    It is an unwritten code in most companies that management must back up their supervisors at all cost to keep order. Think outside of the box and occasionally - just for kicks - actually listen to legitimate concerns from employees without going into immediate damage control with a CYA mindset. If someone approaches management confidentially, that person quickly learns that every manager in his or her department knows about it before the end of the shift.

    I have been working at ArcelorMittal USA as an intern

    Pros

    They gave me tons of experience and I get to work with different teams in their IT department.
    Introduced me to some new technologies that will be useful in my career.
    Very easy to work with and everyone is helpful

    Cons

    Sometimes it takes them a while to get things moving. They take a long time when trying to start a new project

    Advice to Management

    Try to be quicker and more decisive about decision making. This would help with getting more results quicker.

    Pros

    There is a lot of opportunity to take on projects that interest you and direct your own development. Although career paths are not always clearly defined, if you are the type who can forge your own path and make connections across departments and functions, you will go far.

    There are some truly wonderful and intelligent people at this company who are more than willing to share knowledge/expertise!

    Cons

    The company culture largely depends on your location/group - not all locations foster a positive, community environment. The company is large which inevitably leads to bureaucracy, you need to have patience and determination to get things done.

    The company lacks transparency in some areas.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people and empower them to take on responsibilities and make decisions. Take action on employee feedback.
