    Pros

    When it comes to benefits, they do very well, especially with their Employee Stock Ownership Plan, which is a retirement plan that is extremely good, especially since all of it is contributed by the company. They pay better than average for the same position in most cases. Also, as long as you are willing to not make waves and just do things their way, you can achieve a lot here. There is great opportunity for people with a real drive for operations.

    Cons

    The top management are all about operational excellence with little regard for people. There is also a "good old boys club" mentality. Either you're related to somebody or you're willing to schmooze. Keep your ideas to yourself because they don't want to hear them.

    Advice to Management

    Read up on leadership books and be humble enough to realize that diversity of ideas leads to true greatness. Also, try treating your employee-owners like real owners and see what happens. You might be surprised.

    I worked at Pacific Steel & Recycling full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good people and the pay is above average for the area. benefits are better than most, but the cost is still going up.

    Cons

    Narrow minded management for an E.S.O.P organization. Not very team oriented, too bad.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your workers and make decisions with facts not emotion.
