    I have been working at SSAB full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Excellent working conditions in Lisle.
    Superior benefits and competitive salary.
    True work/life balance. Overtime for salaried workers is rare.
    Congenial coworkers.
    I thought I'd clarify that they no longer use Groupwise and Novell. Transitioned to Outlook 2 years ago and no longer use Novell.
    Profit sharing.
    Top notch management and executive team in SSAB Americas. I've learned a lot from interacting with them.
    Quarterly employee meetings to explain financial results are very helpful.

    Cons

    Staffed fairly lean but management invests wisely in technology.
    Market for steel plate and coil (SSAB's product) is improving but not quite up there with fabricated steel and tube products. The economy is slowly improving.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice to let some of the managers give part of the quarterly presentation instead of the same people. I would also like more training for manager/directors.

    Pros

    great money and benefits. Lots of time off with the schedule.

    Cons

    top heavy with bosses and very much ran off a who you know

    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.


  5. "Good Benefits"

    Cons

    Extraordinary Dangerous Conditions. Very hot and dusty.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the guys on the front line

    I worked at SSAB (Less than a year)

    Pros

    J'ai travaillé au service Marketing d'SSAB. La culture de Suèdoise est très présente. C'est une forme de travail très agréable où l'humain est mis au centre.

    Cons

    Rien à dire de vraiment négatif mis a part peut etre le côté "trop propre". Un peu plus de folie ne ferait pas de mal.

    Advice to Management

    Une équipe très à l'écoute et extrêmement bienveillante. Il n'y a rien a redire.

    I have been working at SSAB full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    This Company pays well and has better than average benefits.

    Cons

    The hours and working conditions are not for everyone, but are better than the average Steel Mill.

    Advice to Management

    Unless you are in the management 'click', moving up in this company is very hard.
