Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Ryerson full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

None that I can think of. The company went from being at the top of the metals industry to the bottom very rapidly.
New management has done nothing to resurrect the Ryerson brand they may in fact be making it worse.

Cons

CEO shares his political views in CEO webcasts, ridiculous
Upper management is highly over paid while workers are underpaid.
No concern for employees, the only thing management worries about is the bottom line
No career advancement at all

Advice to Management

Treat employees like they are valuable to the company and reward them for their efforts.
Quite wasting money on useless programs like SMART goals and Success factors paper socres do not determine an employees value

    Pros

    None that I could think of at this time.

    Cons

    Bought out by Platinum then sold out the union employee's at Cincinnati plant. Management was the problem in Cincinnati not the warehouse employee's, Men with 15+ working years let go with no regard to their years of service or experience. Ryerson was an awesome company to work for until it was sold to Platinum.

    Advice to Management

    Sell you clearly don't know the steel business

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Ryerson as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    In the city of Chicago which provided great transportation, great people, great work environment. This has been the best company I have ever worked. My bosses were great. The job itself was not hard just a lot of hard work if you were willing to do it.

    Cons

    None that I could think of at this time.

    Advice to Management

    When they were bought out by Platinum located in Beverly Hills they did a decentralization and they laid everyone off. I wish the old Ryerson Management team would come back.
