    Great 401k program. Competitive wages.

    Many changes over the past 5 years. Much of it necessary for survival, but no longer upward movement possibilities for veteran employees.

    You don’t need to bring in outside consultants for everything.

    I have been working at United States Steel full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Unorganized management leads to easy but boring shifts. Wages slightly above poverty. Ability to trade your entire life for a pay check.

    Cons

    Production trumps everything including safety and maintenance. The facility is a time bomb. Untrained workers, unorganized, lack of communication, hourly employees treated like criminals, management thinks their egos can compensate for their lack of knowledge. I would rather live in poverty than tolerate the abuse from these crude bullies that run the facility.

    Advice to Management

    Learn the Kaisen techniques that you proclaim to implement and yet fail miserably at. But the tremendous egos prevent that. From the bottom of my heart, I hope this company permanently closes its doors.

    I have been working at United States Steel full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Loose job requirements leave plenty of time to choose your own projects. Amazing 401k matching.

    Cons

    Very old-fashioned. Underfunded maintenance makes the facilities shoddy. Computer systems are extremely outdated, and the programmers supporting them aren't good.

    Advice to Management

    Allocate more money for maintenance.

    -Focus on creating a better work environment
    -Add a little fun into the workspace. The general vibe around here is that people are working for the weekend. No surprise most only stay for 3 years to get their 401k vested and then leave.
