      Pros

      Pay is good, hours are fairly flexible. Its a large company, so you can get "lost in the shuffle" in terms of being recognized for promotion.

      Cons

      As with most large companies, it seems like there are so many "layers" of people and departments that need to be involved to get something done. Sometimes you feel as though your spinning your tires.

      Pros

      Nice city to live in. Decent wages at steel mill.

      Cons

      Worst management I have ever seen. They do not care about workers, only profit and will drive workers into the ground to try and get there. Only room for advancement if you know someone near the top.
