    I worked at United States Steel

    Pros

    Benefits and compensation were in line, flexibility depending on your manager, bonus even though it rarely pays out, history rich company that built America. Location was a plus as well.

    Cons

    Cyclical industry and the transformation of the company seems to be never ending, old school mentality at times, accomplishments sometimes went unnoticed
