    I worked at Commercial Metals full-time

    Pros

    Most of the people are very kind

    Cons

    certain departments are better than others, mine was particularly bad with regards to gossip and playing employees against one another

    Advice to Management

    Management has since changed and my former boss has left, so things could be far better than when I was there, so I do not feel it is fair to offer comments here

    I have been working at Commercial Metals full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    HR team is great, and I get the opportunity to meet a lot of great people inside & outside the company

    Cons

    The current state of the company simply doesn’t match with the state of the US economy. While other large public companies are gearing to fully participate in the up markets ahead of us, CMC is tightening up on the flexibility/autonomy of certain business segments. Even those that always perform extremely well.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the most talented employees, and reward them for their success, or they will leave you. Those who know they can do better will go out and do so, if you refuse to help them.
