    Pros

    The pay is excellent! You have a lot of control of your future at Nucor. You can come up with ideas and try them. If it works great, if not there is no penalty, just try something else to make an improvement. Great team atmosphere! When the company does well everyone does well, when the company goes through bad times we all go through bad times.

    Cons

    The hours can be long and tough, but it is worth it. The work environment can be hot and dirty.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Great Salary, Excellent focus on safety

    Cons

    Company philosophy is beginning to change, and in my opinion, for the worse.

    Advice to Management

    More autonomy out in the mill. Allow and encourage people to make decisions, right or wrong. People learn more from making a wrong decision than having all of their choices made for them. People should have the right to fail.
