I worked at Schnitzer Steel full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great pay and bonus structure

Cons

This company was hit with several government penalties for greesing the hands of goverment officials in Asia in the 90s, and due to that has cultivated a culture of fear and dicatatorship.
The IT department has a culture of its own because it's in its own building where the rest of the executives will never know about the beatings that take place there. Sr Management fails to inspire their employees and instead causes anyone with talent to run out the door. Directors of Infrastructure normally take the wrap for all the mistakes the CIO cooks up. They have been through 8 directors of Infrastructure in a 5 year span. You do the math.

Advice to Management

Get rid of the CIO and CAO and it will instantly make this a better place to work.
