    I have been working at Castle Metals full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    With around 1,000 employees the work is manageable and there are opportunities to grow if you work hard. Jobs are not silo'd unless you want them to be.

    Cons

    Can be chaotic at times. Time/money/resources don't currently seem to be on our side.

    Advice to Management

    Do everything you can to support your employees that are excelling at their jobs. Also, don't take advantage of them by piling on them.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Castle Metals full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Checks don't bounce. No accountability so no terminations due to performance. Some of the people who have been around a while truly care.

    Cons

    A chaotic mess of a place. No clear strategy. No clear market strategy. Not even sure if the intent of the organization is to make money, or an adult encampment. Directs employees to lie to each other in order to protect unkown objectives. Had some nice parties to celebrate the bankruptcy though.

    Advice to Management

    Stop.

    Pros

    Salary, Locations, non management personnel and product mix including value added processing equipment.

    Cons

    Management, senior, mid level are all incompetent. Castle could never detail a plan for the future. They did not know what they wanted to do when they grew up.

    Advice to Management

    Shred the Politics and believe in your people.
