I worked at EVRAZ North America full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great location, You can pay for transporation costs pre-tax, Initially there wasn't an employee cost share for benefits. There weren't a lot of defined processes in the beginning so there were opportnities to develop processes and make an impact.

Cons

No work life balance, high stress, a high volume of last minute high priority projects that come out of nowhere. LONG HOURS. Lack of support from management. Employees are resources that are used up and tossed aside. Environment is toxic.

Advice to Management

Follow your values -- listen to your employees -- the company is experiencing high turnover because it is not a great place to work. Invest time in finding out why rather than investing time in convincing employees that they are wrong. Plan your work.

    I have been working at EVRAZ North America full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    My company recruiter gave me fantastic feedback after each step in the interview process which I believe directly helped me get the position. Compensation and relocation package was well executed, professional, and fair. Benfits system has been reasonable and fairly easy to manage.

    Cons

    While not negative in my opinion, the onboarding can be a challenge if you are not used to asking questions and seeking out information that you don't have. The Pueblo IT support guys are fantastic but have a lot of work to do so be patient as your systems can take time to get running. There are some challenges within operations mangement to use vacation time and have your workload be covered.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline onboarding so that new employees know what to expect and when to expect it. The company values are well advertized but employees on the floor appear to question the sincerity of managment's commitment, examine how success of those values is recognized, the peer nomination process may not be producing as much recognition at the floor level as is needed. Continue efforts to build training for front line leadership.

    I worked at EVRAZ North America full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay along with good benefits. A lot of opportunity to grow within the company. Colleagues made it worth showing up for work on a daily basis.

    Cons

    High rate or turnover in senior management positions so makes the vision of the leadership group tough to follow. Very short sided goals instead of setting up for more long term sustainability

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in youth.
