    I have been working at ArcelorMittal USA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very little work load, typical work week 40 hours maximum and usually less than that, overall employees are all great individuals

    Cons

    no career path, incompetent managers, promotions are based solely off age (golden age is 35), lack of challenging work, consistently left in the dark by managers, average age of employee is 55 or older, turnover, especially for young employees, is very very poor,

    Advice to Management

    Management is a skill, not a line drawn in the sand that you pass when you reach a certain age. Recruit more local candidates and avoid recruiting from large universities outside of the area.

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

    Pros

    Most people are genuine and do care for others. You also learn a lot about the steel industry.

    Cons

    *There is little to no room for advancement within the company, HR will tell you differently during the recruiting process (please note: they will blatantly lie about everything of importance during the recruiting process).
    *There's an exceptionally high turnover rate especially among young people due to the culture, work/life balance,etc. Most leave within 2 years.
    *Engineering receives final word on everything so tension is high and the efficiency of the material through the pipeline is poor, very poor
    *Equipment is very old and resources are scarce so no improvements have been or will be made
    *The oldest technology and methods I've ever seen, union environment so positive change is thwarted
    *Never able to accomplish anything due to bureaucracy and others circumventing implementation because they're fearful of change and/or someone else receiving praise
    *Seniority rules the day so old, obsolete methods also rule, more credibility is received as you're there longer (other manufacturing companies encourage new perspectives and company changes every 2-4 years for this very reason (new outlooks))
    *Legacy steel companies which were once rivals have all been merged so conflict is rampant
    *Old-boy network based on legacy company is also rampant, everyone else is immediately an outsider
    *Have lost money in 4 consecutive quarters

    Advice to Management

    I don't envy those who have to guide the direction of this sinking ship (down).

    Pros

    pays well if you are experienced and can negotiate it upfront. Entry level and interns are treated very well, better than those that have been there for a few years.

    Cons

    Poor management, cares nothing about employees' personal or professional development. HR will flat out lie to you when they say you have all kinds of opportunity to move into different positions. Once you are in a department, that's where you stay. Do not disagree with management, or make suggestions, you will be labeled a problem employee and a troublemaker. Union runs the place, management has no backbone and they will not stand behind you. Sinking ship,stay away.

    Advice to Management

    No hope, this place is on its way out.

    I worked at ArcelorMittal USA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pay was great, the best co-workers I've ever had! Good training classes/programs.

    Cons

    Very poor management. Employees that do not do their share of work and miss a lot of time are allowed to get away with it, while really good employees who work hard and never miss work take up the slack and do not get recognized for it. Too many audits after company takeover last year, and after a few months went by after the buyout the extreme changes started coming. I was harshly interrogated for two hours and then put on suspension for 3 weeks for something that I did not do and they never had proof (because it didn't exist) but lost my job anyway for "violation of company policy" but they could not tell me which policy. This all came from the corporate office and our local HR department knew nothing and could give me no information. Consulting a lawyer. The bad thing is that I absolutely loved my job and always received high reviews, never missed work, and have very high work ethic. This was devastating and out of the blue! The way this was handled is absolutely horrific!

    Advice to Management

    Get a backbone and stand up for your employees who you have always trusted and know are good ethical workers!!

    Hours,parking ,work area,air conditioning, lots of lunches brought into work.

    Cons

    Management, everyone is related some how! Everyone you work with either do not have a degree nor do the managers but they move up in the company due to being related!

    Advice to Management

    Offer more training and do not only do favors to your friends!

    Pros

    Good benefits and decent pay.

    Cons

    Filthy environment, miserable people who think they are entitled because they are in the union, especially second or third generation employees. Bargaining unit and company don't get it. Counter productive with everyone splitting hairs over contract language. Would not recommend working in this industry for this organization.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing can be said that will change a thing. This symbiotic relationship between the union and the company is corrupt and dysfunctional.

    Pros

    Sadly, in terms of Pros, there are few. I am lucky enough to work with a few coworkers that genuinely care about their work.

    Cons

    Upper management is stubborn and very resistant to change or improvement. Making constructive suggestions to upper management is often considered to be rebellious behavior and is discouraged. As such, good changes are few and far in between.
