    I worked at Nucor full-time

    Pros

    Good Benefits (except for vacation or paid time off) Good Pay Opportunity to Advance (if you are willing to relocate)

    Cons

    Communication is non-existent Zero Work/Life Balance Long Hours which often include working holidays and weekends. Vacant positions are rarely filled timely (if at all) and existing employees are overloaded and expected to perform multiple jobs without proper support or resources. Schedules can change with very little notice and without regard to employees existing personal situations or scheduled time off Management is executed through a get on board or hit the road mentality Suggestions from base level employees are ignored Open door policies are only talked about in annual meetings but fail to exist

    I worked at Nucor full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Starting pay is ok. This would be a good place to build your resume until you can find a job that pays what you are worth. Great place for really young people. Some paid training. Some really nice, decent people here. Vacation policy is not bad. Employee stock is a good benefit, while the 401k has a terrible match. If you are deemed to be worthy of the inner clique then you will love it here. So if you're the kind of person that looks for the right people to suck up too, and don't care how bad that looks to the other hardworking people around you then you will do great here.

    Cons

    Outdated office. Very few windows. Open cubicles. Lots of noise and chatter, much of it related to socializing. Quite a bit like High School with the "In" crowd being very secure and taken care of, and making sure that they take care of the people in their clique. Fast paced, and high stress office environment. Too many meetings to the point of being counterproductive. Pretty people (women in particular) will make it farther faster.
