    I have been working at A. M. Castle full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I've been with the company for a long time for a reason. The benefits and 401K are decent, I enjoy my work and the people that I work with really care about our goal and are a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    In the last 3-5 yrs. the climate has changed dramatically. The introduction of a new ERP coupled with inadequate training has severely impacted overall employee morale. Upper level leadership has become somewhat of a revolving door. Gone are the days when one could approach a manager with a concern and feel confident that your concerns would be taken into consideration and addressed accordingly. Instead there is a climate of "doing whatever is necessary to reach the goal". This has meant the loss of several valuable employees with the work being redistributed among the remaining, already over-taxed employees. The threat of an impending closure looms over our heads daily with no clear answers being provided by management, the air of uncertainty is palpable. No Bueno.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Times change, the marketplace changes. Communicate with your employees. Let us know how the company is really performing. Nothing is worse than not knowing if we will have a job tomorrow. We have families to support and bills to pay. Show us that you care enough to give us the truth.
