The company culture is very hostile and very dangerous
Support from management
Management tries their best but they are given orders by outside contractors and the labor union on how to run the business.
Everyone hates each other and it is a cut throat environment
Freedom to work independently
Your rarely see a supervisor or union executive around unless there is a fatality or there is something the union wants from the company. Employees are used as pawns in a political battle.
The only time that you recieve communication on how to do your job is when there has been a mistake made and discipline is needed. Then everyone comes out of the woodwork to share in the bravado of showing support.
There is a prominent glass ceiling effect
Attitude towards older colleagues
there is a great deal of negativity and back stabbing amongst colleagues on both the union side and managerial side. Senior colleagues are being forced to retire or quit so the the company can develop a two tier pay scale.
The career development program is excellent. You can work for US Steel, earn any degree you want from an accredited college and then quit and use your education elsewhere.
Overall compensation for your work
The compensation is no where close to the work load per employee, both management and union.
Office / Work Environment
The lighting is horrible, most of the power goes out, all of the ventilation in most buildings is horrible due to lack of maintenance, It is sub zero in the winter and scalding hot in the summer.
The only employees that are Eco-conscious are the environmental managers to which 4 of them have been terminated and 3 are left to manage 7 miles worth of industrial manufacturing.
On average an employee works 48 hours per week, unless you are management than your hours are up to 60 hours per week without any bonus, overtime, or benefits.
This has become one of the most dangerous and deplorable companies to work for over my 20+ years of service.
This job is very unstable
There is no handicap accessibility other than a drive in pass
2 fatalities in one year is horrendous. OSHA compliance is only portrayed if there is an incident, accident, or especially a fatality. Lights, Camera, Action.
The jobs are set up so that a monkey can do them. Everything is mostly push button for production. Maintenance is very difficult due to the fact that every piece of machinery is outdated, we have no parts, and 50% of maintenance employees have been laid off or terminated.
Inclusive / Diverse
This company has a very diverse population
