    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, "hands on" approach

    Cons

    Management doesn't like new ideas unless it is their own. Everyone is only looking out for themselves including higher management. No sense of team. People who show good work skills are overloaded with projects until they break while people with bad work skills have light loads and continue to get raises and promotions. No one is treated fairly. Corporate has a disconnect with the actual mill locations and only think in ideal situations when implementing new initiatives, when a steel mill is anything but ideal.

    Advice to Management

    Be truthful and open with employees and encourage the local management to do the same. Plan the larger projects better so there aren't delays and loss of trust from all employees at the mill locations. Act quicker to serious situations. Reevaluate the somewhat cold actions taken when shutting mills down and laying people off.
