  1. "You always do more than you're supposed to"

    I worked at Gerdau

    Pros

    Wage, vacation time, matched 401k to 6%

    Cons

    The management tends to only like the bosses pets

    Advice to Management

    Talk and listen to the employees. The managers only listen to the ones that kiss up. Reward the ones who deserve it.

    Pros

    Good Benefits Great management Lenient with vacation Great exposure to all aspects of industrial expertise

    Cons

    Long hours Hot in the summer

    Advice to Management

    Let management at the mills benefit from the "core hours" that corporate can utilize. Management regularly works 60+ hours/week and receives no benefit from it.

    I have been working at Gerdau full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    All the overtime you want because everyone has left and they can't keep anyone there.

    Cons

    Management does what they want. There are no rules. Preaches safety until it interfere's with production. Then safety goes out the door. The incentive program is garbage. Use to be a good place to work, then the Brazilians got greedy

    Advice to Management

    No advice. They would not listen anyways

    I have been working at Gerdau full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    We can write problems and solutions on a wall and watch soccer. Close to the mall.

    Cons

    Many talented IT staff have left the company as Tampa IT Leadership do not trust their people and will micromanage or isolate themselves away from others to avoid their people. No balance. Everyone is asking who is next and actively looking elsewhere. Everyone. Deflating.

    Advice to Management

    The turn-over in IT has been an issue for years. Think of the common denominator and why it is still happening.
