    I have been working at Olympic Steel full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Corporate management appreciates their employees and offers great benefits. Olympic Steel corporate leadership does a great job of managing through economic downturns and taking advantage of market opportunities.

    Cons

    Local management is not in touch with the extreme challenges faced by the front line employees. They tend to hide behind closed doors, and assign blame at the first sign of difficulty instead of coaching and fostering growth.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate management, keep up the great work! Local management needs to make a greater effort to understand what their employees actually do, never publicly embarrass their employees, and NEVER, when an employee comes to them and asks for help, say the following, "there are 24 hours in a day".
