    Pros

    Working in a steel mill, there is never a dull moment. There is always something new to learn or gain from the day. You get to work around heavy industrial equipment which is everyday nothing short of amazing. Being a part of the steel industry, espeically in this company, gives you great pride when making a product which is used for buildings, bridges, military, nuclear, submaries, cars, and much more.

    Cons

    None that I can think of. Excellent company to work for.

    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 full-time

    Pros

    Fairly competitive starting salary for recent college graduates. Company provides up to 6% 401K match and is 100% vested immediately. Company offers competitive Graduate Study reimbursement of up to $24k per year.

    Cons

    Steel industry is currently suffering and the company is struggling financial, resulting in overall negative work environment, slashes in health care/benefits, and limited to no merit based pay increases. Upper management style is dated, poorly manages personnel changes, and fails to foster career development for its younger work force.

    Advice to Management

    Despite the struggling steel industry, the company must find ways to reward the performance of its younger work force and also work to evolve its management style to reflect the modern workforce.
