    Pros

    The company provides a lot of learning opportunity and career development. You have great access to executive management.

    Cons

    The industry is cyclical, which will impact bonus compensation. The company does not have advanced systems. Most work is conducted in excel, but detailed templates is valuable to learn the business.

    Pros

    FANTASTIC BENEFITS
    Autonomy
    Decent Pay
    Caring Management Team

    Cons

    Cyclical business environment
    Communication not always expressed to floor in the way that really describes our vision
    Lack of trust between certain groups

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving on the same path of CI. There is a lot of care towards employees from the leadership team, but that always doesn't get communicated to the floor. I think it would go a long way if floor level employees really knew how much upper management cared about them

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    To many wanna be chiefs. Clueless management. Senior workers bully, and manipulate anyone they feel threatened by. Only care about themselves, not the team. Could be the best department if you got rid of one employee that thinks he runs the shop.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the guys on the floor, and actually make a effort get be out on the floor with the workers to get a clue about what's going on. Grow a pair and don't let the "the best worker" try and dictate how the lab should run for his benefit, rather than the team...

    I have been working at EVRAZ North America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have worked for EVRAZ for over 3 years now. It has been a rewarding and also challenging experience. I have had the opportunity to work with some smart and very talented individuals. The company has also worked towards improving the day to day employee experience.

    Cons

    We once had a toxic, ego driven work environment, but most of those people have moved on from the Company, which is for the better. The industry itself is cyclical, so it is not for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on employee engagement and turning the business around. We still have business challenges ahead, but hopefully things will turnaround.

    Pros

    I've had a worthwhile experience. I would attribute this greatly to working with a wonderful manager. From a company perspective, you're never bored; things change quickly and you must be able to adapt. If you are someone willing to embrace change and has a passion for improvement, this can be a good place for you.

    Cons

    As with other companies, there is a lot of work to be done (at least with in my area). This is suited for best for someone who possesses qualities of adaptability, teamwork, and delegation (or be willing to work towards this).

    Pros

    Absolute great benefits. Just a solid manufacturing environment with good people.

    Cons

    There is no "Ivory Tower" in Pueblo but still great place to work.

    Pros

    Opportunity, but high risk of layoff. Good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Steel and energy markets are either in a boom or bust cycle - nothing in between. During a bust cycle, always huge layoffs. Little to no job security.

    Pros

    Good Benefits. Good Work life balance. The people that work there are really nice. Most everyone has a positive attitude.

    Cons

    Very high turn over. Some good managers there that care about the employees. Not a lot of upward mobility,

    Advice to Management

    There is a big divide between Upper level management and the rest of employees. Would have been nice to have interaction other than at town hall meetings.

    Pros

    The company provides good benefits and there were a lot of great production people working there.

    Cons

    I had a horrible manager who wasn't interested in fixing the real problems in the pipe mill. Too cliquish in leadership. Had unrealistic production plans for the plant.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to new employees you bring in, because you're probably bringing us in for our strong backgrounds in mfg and how production knowledge. We can help make positive change !
