    I worked at United States Steel full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Challenging variety of work. Mostly worked on my own after job assignment. Learned a lot of other trade skills on the job.

    Cons

    Very few managers know how to handle their employees or even what kind of work the jobs they do involve. Too much backstabbing by upper management and HR.

    Advice to Management

    Get managers in key positions from the top down who actually want the company to succeed; dump the outside advisors!

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

    Pros

    Excellent entry level compensation and benefits package. Work with your hands, room for advancement, and job security after probationary period.

    Cons

    They don't hire enough people or hire people who are unable to perform the job so the turnover rate is high. Work/Life balance will lean heavily towards work. The company seems to be in big trouble, Carnegie Way cost cutting initiatives don't seem to be gaining ground.

    Advice to Management

    Upper level management out of touch with employees, listen to what employees want and what works best to make a more efficient workplace.

    Pros

    Lots of room for advancement. Some positions are easy to learn if you are willing to do the leg work.

    Cons

    Hours are around the clock 24/7. A lot of the managers are in wrong positions to benefit the company. Company is behind ten years with the rest of the world.

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving forward

    I have been working at United States Steel full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Paid for health, dental and vision insurance. If you happen to be an unskilled and no education worker the pay is well, but you are going to give up your family, friends and personal life for it.

    Cons

    Schedule, moral, for the average worker the place is terribly managed, and as of 2Q 2017 stockholders aren't happy at all with management of this company. Good place to get back on your feet if need be but not a career option.

    Advice to Management

    Management is not interested in "advice".
