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

Pros

Location and office cleanliness. Core group of people (all levels of staff) are working very hard to make the company better after major acquisition. Advancing in corporate policies as the company grows.

Cons

Employees who complain about how busy and overworked they are in this job market.
The want it all, but it should be "given" to them as if the company should be overjoyed- just with their presence... EARN it.
Some political turmoil- seems to be working itself out now.
Pay seems better at other companies, but the compensation here far outweighs the paychecks.
Work life balance is hard right now, but I could blame myself for this too.

Advice to Management

Switch to PTO versus actual vacation days and increase the # of days by 4-5, this will give those who are never calling in sick to a reward versus those who continue to use manager managed "sick" days as a crutch and put their supervisors in a pickle and in a potential legal spot.

    I have been working at Kloeckner Metals full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice looking office, good area.

    Cons

    Not a good place to work if you don't have thick skin and the ability to handle an enormous amount of stress. No advancement opportunities unless you are part of the "Good ol' boys (or girls) club". If you are part of the elite group, you can get away with anything you want, make up your own schedule, come & go as you please, do as little work as you please, basically anything you want.. If you aren't part of that group, good luck surviving that place. The treatment of some employees there (usually the best ones) is flat-out inhumane. They are losing all of their good employees, and are causing countless numbers of employees to suffer from extremely dangerous stress-related health issues. And the sad part is, they couldn't care less.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are NOT happy, start treating them with some respect before you lose them all.

    I have been working at Kloeckner Metals full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have been given the flexibility to build the IT organization based upon my strategy and fit for the business

    Cons

    Old school steel business that sometimes doesn't appreciate the value that IT brings to the business and how it can help generate and retain customers
