Support from management

Supervisors tend to promote friends and family at the Nashville location. Decision methods are done at the management level regardless of employees opinion.

Teamwork

In general employees try to work together to accomplish tasks

Gender Equality

Too many family members in key position to allow for equality.

Career Development

The companies values call for supporting advancement bur not at this location. If your good at what you do you'll stay in that spot.

Office / Work Environment

If you can stand working in a cubicle with alot of back ground noise, then this is the place for you. Even though office are given to managers and human resource employees that are not in the office half the time.

Job Security

No real job security. They have let employees go every year for the past 10 years.

Workplace Safety

To the point of hurting business

Inclusive / Diverse

Your opinion doesn't seem to matter or heard.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Listen to your employees.

What I like about the company

Core values, even though it is not followed by management

What I dislike about the company

I'm not sure about the other location but in the Nashville area friends and family are promoted regardless of knowledge and actual real experience.

Company Culture

The company has a good code of ethics to follow but it isn't necessarily followed by management.

Support from management

This company is extremely top heavy and typically will let employees go around the holidays.

Teamwork

Generally there is good teamwork among employees. Moral is often low.

Gender Equality

Not much diversity in the southern region. It maybe different at other location. Friends and family are promoted into management position even though this company has a Brazilian background.

Career Development

Opportunities are given to those individuals ghat management like. Not based on knowledge.

Overall compensation for your work

Compensation and benefits were great a few years ago. However, the company is constantly increasing insurance cost. They give incremental raises but then reduce bonuses.

Job Security

No job security.

Workplace Safety

Extremely safety conscious. Be prepared to suit up before walking across the office.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Don't hold back employees that work hard and reduce upper management, extremely top heavy. Also, get rid of SAP program. A very ineffective program that is too costly and employees are always struggling with it to do their jobs.

What I like about the company

I like the insurance provided by Gerdau however, every year seems to get worse.

What I dislike about the company

Management promotes friends or individuals they like and want in key position. Not necessarily the best qualified. Too much family in the Nashville location.
