    I have been working at SSAB full-time

    Pros

    Excellent pay and benefits. Great working environment. Friendly department peer group. I've had an overall pleasant experience in the 15 plus years I've worked for the company.

    Cons

    The only con I could possibly think of would be the cyclic nature of the steel industry. There are periods when the supply outstrips the demand but our company has weathered those storms without layoffs in each instance.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep the lines of communications open and use the knowledge of those in the trenches to fulfill the goal of continuous improvement.

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

    Pros

    Benefits and some co-workers. Covered parking and easy access to a highway. Nice building with gym. You can be a slacker

    Cons

    Company wants to success but is way too business conservative and very political. This causes them to have some questionable employees that take advantage of others. Some are not cut for the job or lazy, yet HR does not do anything to them being afraid of a lawsuit. Seems like like those that cut corners and cry are rewarded the most. Also seems like a bad for place for minorities. I've seen great people who wanted nothing more than the organization to succeed pushed out. Many try to figure out where the company is going and management does nothing to make them feel secure.

    Advice to Management

    Grow a pair and do your job! Project and reward the asset employees . Don't be afraid to let go unproductive ones. Ever wonder why the competitors successful ?? They take risk and are aggressive in their vision. Don't just talk change your culture.

    "Explore other options"

    I worked at SSAB full-time

    Pros

    The only pro to working in the Lisle office at this company is...uh...maybe...well the coffee is very good (although not free).

    Cons

    The company is constantly in a state of distress, or so employees are told. They like to say that they operate "lean", which is code for understaffed. Rather than hire the right people, they try to cut corners by using contractors for lengthy terms and cut them loose before the project is complete. If considering this company, be aware that the job descriptions are vague do not reflect the actual work. If you have other employment options, run from this company.

    Advice to Management

    Tell the truth.
