    Pros

    If you are in a good department you can easily make six figures consistently every year

    Cons

    If you are in a not so good department the amount of money you make will be very inconsistent because overtime gets cut and incentives gets cut

    Advice to Management

    When you keep your employees happy we will be happy to go above and beyond but when you treat us bad don't expect for us to perform great. You get what you give

    I worked at United States Steel full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great co-workers. Always changing. Good location (if you like being in the city).

    Cons

    They manage everything horribly. They'll pay their elites millions of dollars per year in bonuses, to keep from paying taxes. They'll dish out OT to anyone who wants it, as much as they want, but nothing for the regular joe that went to college and pushes paper. Salary is OK, but nothing to write home about, and no perks outside of that. Unless u call medical a perk.

    Advice to Management

    Less contractors, more full time employment. Stop paying your CEOs so much, and divide it up among lower pay employees. Everyone there is expected to work hard, whether it be in the plants, or in the office. The work expected of everyone is the same. The plant guys at least get tons of OT to help them make a decent living. That's not an option to someone that went to college and should be earning more.
