    Pros

    Decent salary and good benefits, some good team players who work very hard

    Cons

    Still an old boys club in 2018. Good employees and leaders tend to leave the company, poor developement, poor recognition. Poor recruitment, nothing being done to retain or improve dynamic thinkers and leaders. Leadership just talks, no walk. Many upper management staff have never really worked ( hard) in steel plants at the front lines, or they seem to forget what it is like.

A very hard and difficult work, dispatch push the max load of work everyday (10 - 14 hrs).
