    I have been working at Nucor full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    -Great Bonuses - Hard Working Group of People - No defined path, and can learn anything. - Will learn applicable engineering tools.

    Cons

    -Looked at as the red headed step child group. -Not receptive to change. Change only occurs after the issue happens. -Good ole boy system very present. -Different expectations across the board. -No investment in employees. - Feels like you are working in the 90s when it comes to mentality of life.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that you should invest in your workers. If they are unhappy, there is no incentive for them to stay. You have to start adapting to what is actually happening in the world. If you do not choose to adapt, you will never keep any real talent in the area.
