    I have been working at U.S. Steel Canada full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits. Lots of opportunity for continued learning and lateral movement. Good opportunity for recent graduates looking to get their foot in the door.

    Cons

    Uncertainty of Canadian future, lack of senior management support. Not conducive to continuing development, very "old-school" mentality. Dirty and dated work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to continuous improvement projects lead by all team members. Focus on challenging and developing new employees to keep them engaged.

    Pros

    Good Money and decent benefits. Everybody here is old so the opportunity to move up soon is there if you want it.

    Cons

    You will not have a life unless your life is steel. You miss birthdays, graduations, holidays, weddings, funerals, and your life.

    Micromanagement is key. Expect a lot of yelling and a little bit of understanding.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that the employees are not just numbers or robots. Stop using safety as a reason to get everyone to cower in fear of their jobs.
