    I worked at United States Steel full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great pay, benefits, 401k, daily deep throat competitions for suck butts.

    Cons

    No job security, no room for advancement, fraternization, self development is looked down upon, upper management puts people in charge that are completely unqualified

    Advice to Management

    Please stop this fraternization that goes on between the salary and hourly employees. It hurts production when people can constantly damage machinery and stop production, but since they are buddies with management they get a pass while someone else gets the ax. This 1970 mentality really hurts the company.

    Share the wealth. We're all in this together. We all need each other.
