    Pros

    Benefits no layoffs potential to make more

    Cons

    Poor management and leadership. Cheap on equipment costing you production incentive for down and broken equipment and no desire to improve. Overly "safety" minded except always. More of a as I say not as it matters sort of thing. Very rough to deal with a two faced place.

    Pros

    The culture and values of Nucor is unlike anywhere else I have worked. Nucor teammates are treated like family and are empowered to make decisions and bring up ideas and solutions to management.

    Cons

    The vacation policy isn't as good, but it's still pretty average. Flexibility in work hours varies across divisions. A majority of the positions don't have a lot of room for growth, then there are a few that the opportunities are endless.

    Advice to Management

    Keep everyone informed on what's going on or what's coming up.

    I worked at Nucor full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay was good benefits were ok hours depended on the job and location. I thought it was a great place

    Cons

    Put in 13 years of honest work between 2 divisions. Got treated like a number not a person. Trying to schedule things outside of work was a nightmare because shifts were cancelled all the time. Management doesn't care about the "teammates" only the bottom line.

    Advice to Management

    Get some new managers


  10. "A Good Company That Continues to Grow"

    Pros

    Pay is very good and the company seems to care about their employees.

    Cons

    If you want to move up in the company, it is expected that you are willing to relocate.
