    I worked at Nucor full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Committed to safety & environment, treats employees well. above average compensation for manufacturing jobs. Management is above average. Culture is strong & meaningful. Many long term and multi-generational employees. I really enjoyed working there.

    Cons

    Shifts are a bit wonky for people working on the floor, but many days off in a row as well. Management does get a bit bogged down in the noble quest for improvement

    Advice to Management

    Be careful not to create too many well intended yet reactionary programs/committees which create too much noise to signal ratio when working towards improvement. Continue being awesome

    Pros

    Nucor has a very experienced and diverse management team. Their main focus of safety is embedded in your brain from day one. Management truly cares about their employees and wants them to succeed. Autonomous work place that allows for creative thinking.

    Cons

    There is little room for growth within each division. There are only a few tiers of management, so it is very difficult to advance in the company. I have seen many divisions struggle with internal relationships. It can get distracting and escalate to the point where people go out of their way to avoid each other.

    Advice to Management

    Conduct more team building exercises. Offer new incentives for teammates to work together.

    Pros

    The safety culture is one that not everyone can live up to. Safety come first in Nucor and management stands behind this.

    Cons

    Safety is so strict that sometimes it is a challenge to work with such high standards and complete the task assigned to you.
