    I worked at Nucor as an intern

    Pros

    Nucor is the top company in the steel industry and is an innovative company that drives the industry. There are very few levels of management, and for a fortune 500 company, as an employee it felt like you really matter. The pay is also very good.

    Cons

    The hours can be long and the work is often hard.

    I worked at Nucor as an intern

    Pros

    The company culture is incredible and the positive can-do attitude shared by everyone is contagious. Teammates at Nucor embrace the impossible challenges and their engineers are given the resources, authority, and autonomy to solve them. Even as an intern, I was given a lot of responsibility and expected to perform. During the few months I was there, I learned so much. I would love to go back to Nucor.

    Cons

    I saw no real negatives to working with Nucor.

    I have been working at Nucor full-time

    Pros

    A company that promotes ownership and hard work. No matter what your job title, if you apply yourself, you can go as far as you want in the company. A company that is not afraid to take risk. Teammate minded and takes care of their own.

    Cons

    Work swing shift in majority of the positions.

    Advice to Management

    Work to bring Nucor into the modern world. Can't trust to succeed as we always have. New type of teammates and new type of customers means new ways of staying connected.

    I have been working at Nucor full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Safety is number one priority, flexibility to determine your own career path, team-based environment, good pay, strong company culture, teammates are most important asset, company stays true to mission statement and culture, decentralized operations can react quickly to market conditions, feels like a small business (mom and pop) with the backing of a $20 billion organization, decision-making is pushed to the person closest to the situation which is usually front-line teammates, egalitarian management philosophy means no hierarchy, minimal red tape/bureaucracy

    Cons

    Poor work/life balance, antiquated vacation policy, limited leadership diversity, sometimes too concerned with teammates' feelings over what's right/necessary for the company.

    Advice to Management

    Look for more ways to innovate, challenge old beliefs and processes, embrace technology in all areas of business, understand the balance between decentralization and efficiency and leverage, focus more effort on hiring the new generation
