    I worked at Reliance Steel full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great working environment.
    Regular meetings to keep everyone in the loop.
    No one is really out of reach (outside of the biggest heads of the company). You can easily call and/or send an e-mail to anyone in the company and expect a response
    Great Benefits, expect for vision (for a company where we stare at a computer the majority of the time, vision should have higher priority)
    No pettiness among employees

    Cons

    There was a turning point for this company in several different locations that took place from the beginning of 2015-2016. Some of the hardest working individuals started disappearing and/or had their positions changed. Several staff members were moved from salary to hourly. A lot of the new hires basically didnt seem like they knew what they were doing. It was like a well ran ship that went under some type of mutiny and the end result, it felt like that ship was sinking.

    There are some departments that were unaffected by all the change, but there were others that were hit hard.
    Ultimately, your future in the company is very unsure. 1 day you may be doing great, the next, you're being transferred to a new department, new building, or just being let go.
    Training is loosy goosy
    Sometimes your concerns, even voiced many times, fall on deaf ears

    Advice to Management

    Do not forget, unhappy employees will undoubtedly turn into unhappy customers, and ultimately lead to overall dissatisfaction.

    Pros

    Co-workers are usually pretty nice. Management seems to care about the employees. Like many other small companies people are generally pretty friendly.

    Cons

    Not a really hard driven culture. People are pretty relaxed and happy with there they are, so there's not a lot of push to succeed.

    Advice to Management

    I think it's a good place to work for, especially in the specific industry they operate in. No real problems.
