    I have been working at Gerdau Long Steel North America full-time (More than 10 years)

    The company has done a self assessment that is creating a new direction that will be fun to be a part of. Help to build a new culture at one of the country's largest recyclers.

    Cons

    Steel industry carries a misperception of a dying smokestack industry. Nothing could be further from the truth.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to the employees and we will stay on the right path.

    I have been working at Gerdau Long Steel North America full-time

    Pros

    A great place to collect a paycheck, but basically a horrible place to work.

    Cons

    No advancement opportunities, constant layoffs, more interested in trimming costs than investing in people or the business. Unrealistic goals, and only average performers left.

    Advice to Management

    Reconsider your priorities. You say you have 9 months to right the ship, but in 9 months will you have any quality people left?
