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 worked at Kloeckner Metals full-time

    Pros

    Convenient location for most people, nice/updated looking office, some very friendly co-workers.

    Cons

    MANAGEMENT who lacks basic human compassion/decency, Corporate HR Department is evil, not a good environment for parents who wish to balance their work/home life, very "high school clique" feel, if you aren't a member of the clique they will make your life miserable until you eventually quit, they don't care about how unhappy & overworked employees are, they will just keep piling work on you to the point of being inhumane rather than hire additional help.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like human beings instead of robots.
