    Pros

    I don't see any pros... only experience for some years... then you must leave this silly and bad managed company!

    Cons

    Well, let's start:
    1 Management, they don't even know what management is! All the management is very ignorant and poorly educated, just few people has a degree..
    2 Salary, expect to work 12 -14 hrs 7 on 7... with a bad pay of course
    3 They treat customers so bad, they think they're stupid
    4 There is no organization at all, both on site and on the HQ in Buttrio
    5 They claim to be an international company but they are so racist with non italian people!!!!
    6 90% of Danieli guys speak a terrible English...

    Advice to Management

    STUDY! or just go to do the farmer!

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

    Pros

    Hard to think of any Pros

    Cons

    No pay increases, bonuses, cost of living increases. Make you all types of promises but never follow through. Take care of their own (Italians) and only management. In all honesty this company needs an overhaul in management.

    Advice to Management

    Remember it's the little guy that makes a company what it is. Without them you are nothing.

    If you like to work and not have any pay increases then this place is for you.

    Get trained in your position and take care of employees both in pay and ethics.

    I worked at Danieli part-time

    Pros

    The work culture is good. The top management is knowledgeable. I worked there as an Intern and there was lot of learning and growth opportunity.

    Cons

    The steel industry is not doing good and there the work environment is very stressful. The communication system is not that good and top management is not approachable.

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

    Pros

    In spite of everything, it's a blazon on the CV
    It can be a "School of survival" (hard survival!!!) for just graduated guys, often needing to keep feet on the ground.
    Stay there if you have not other opportunities (not necesserarly better...)

    Cons

    The worst professional behaviours are here
    Wide lack of respect to people
    Progress for decimation of opponents (lucky or bast.. inside: which one are you?
    Expect a torpedo anytime...
    Management... it is better do not say any!

    I worked at Danieli full-time

    Pros

    You have the chance to work with some foreigners; however, it's tough to find folks who speak English fluently.

    Cons

    Personally, I cannot make out why lots of ppl recommend working for this company.
    Let me mention some reasons:
    1- They're by no means paymaster, at least the technical office
    2- You're asked ("forced") to work 9 - 10 hrs per day + Saturday morning and get paid 40hrs / wk. If you don't comply with that, you'll receive a letter from the HR Dept formulated in a manner that encourages you to dedicate unpaid hours to the company without facing any legal issue. In fact, you just clock in and never clock out...
    3- Engineering is mainly based on copy-paste. Only the CRD (R&D Centre) comes up with sth original. Normally, Danieli is not a great innovator with respect to downstream processing
    4- Daniel has lost an impressive number of talented engineers. Indeed, you'll barely find people who know what're doing - they just say it's worked so far, so keep the solution intact.
    5- Since the group has huge technical offices in Thailand, Poland, Vietnam and China (some guys also in India), Italy is becoming more a "bureaucratic centre". This's my humble opinion.
    6- Bosses are still living in the Stone Age. Zero creativity, nobody dares to challenge the status quo, everyone is afraid of losing the job.
    7- The company's policy is: politics over merit! If you don't believe me, ask ex employees who worked for any of Danieli's technical offices
    8- By and large, the tendency is to hire fresh grads / inexperienced folks to squeeze costs.
    9- When you sign the contract, it's mandatory to commit to 2 years- otherwise, you'll have to pay to leave. Does it ring a bell? You can now realize why the turnover is extremely high
    10- There had been cases in which someone of the HR Dept hired incompetent people based on "specific favours to be satisfied"...I let you figure out the meaning of "favours"

    Advice to Management

    Fire 95% of the managers
    Replace the HR Dept
    Get rid of your toxic culture
    Bring in talented and experienced folks
