    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

    a paycheck (although you can probably make more on unemployment)

    Cons

    Senior Leaders are oblivious to what their managers are doing
    Managers play favorites, and threaten folks
    This is corporate game of not my problem and dumping things on other folks

    Advice to Management

    Fire your mid-level managers, engage your staff and instead of pretending to care, actually care

    I worked at EVRAZ North America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some of the other hourly workers and production workers were a pleasure to work with. There is a chance to learn someone new often.

    Cons

    Frequent lay offs with no little notice. Favoritism from management. No cost of living raises for years. Wages for trades are becoming sub par. Knowledgeable tradesmen are leaving and there is no knowledge transfer available as they leave. Benifits are eroding. Overtime is sporadic and can't be counted on as a replacement for sub par pay.
    Managers will invite you to leave if you don't like no raises or unsafe conditions. You are considered replaceable, which is why they are always looking or using temp agencies. Sales of usable steel are shrinking, thus explaining no raises and draconian policies on keeping no spare parts.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people better. Listen when they go to HR and tell you Sahara going on.

    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...

    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).
