I worked at Metals USA full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Work-life balance is acceptable. Reliance acquisition of Metals USA will bring much needed changes, but it may take too long.

Cons

Politics and poor leadership are major obstacles.

Advice to Management

Remove self-interested managers. Talent is eroding because of politics and self-interested managers.

    Pros

    The company has enormous resources in the steel business.

    Cons

    Management there is only interested in promoting themselves and will do or say anything that benefits them to upper management. I was in charge of my own division and received minimal help from the division vice presidents. They were interested in only their jobs and how they can get promoted to the next level. They never did anything to help their new employees. If you work their in a management position, be ready to receive the minimal help from you superiors, it is all for themselves!

    Advice to Management

    They all need to stop being intimidated by the CEO and the hierarchy of the company and stop being robots.

    I have been working at Metals USA full-time

    Pros

    Most of the people in the office enjoy working together. It is a small office and a tight knit group.

    Cons

    Management is a joke. They push and push that we need to be a team, but they keep us seperated. Litterally. The office personell are not allowed to talk with the warehousemen.
