    I worked at Reliance Steel (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very solid fortune 500 company. Job security is the best part of the company. They are well managed and have a very strong Corporate leadership group.

    Cons

    they have grown to fast and are losing contact with the ground level employees. Employees are starting to feel like they don't matter. Promotion opportunities are limited.

    Advice to Management

    Remember the ground level, division employees. Corporate and division level managers need to show less arrogance and more concern for those who are really earning the money.

    I have been working at Reliance Steel full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Everyone treats each other like family and the benefits are pretty good. Room for advancement since this is a Fortune 300 company. Even though this is a traditional/conservative metals company, there is a fair amount of diversity in terms of gender, race, and sexual orientation. Many locations worldwide so it's great if you're in a position that lets you travel.

    Cons

    Highly political environment, especially when you consider how so many people around you are connected to those higher up. Some of the things that bother employees is how conservative the company is with its finances - especially when it comes to travel and expenses. This goes a long way in bringing employee morale down a few notches.

    Advice to Management

    Employee morale isn't the best and Reliance is a company that makes over $8 billion a year, it wouldn't hurt to give employees incentives so that the family-oriented work environment continues to motivate them to stay on and grow.
