    Pros

    It is a medium sized company

    Cons

    The culture is very old school type and closed; not a git for new generation employees as you would suffocate to death. You have to say"yes boss' to everything. Management wants schmoozing all the time; they do not care about performance. Bosses are very dictatorial and authoritative; too much power distance.

    Pros

    There’s always a need for steel

    Cons

    The insurance used to be very good. It’s really bad now. We used to get production bonuses. The company took those away. You have to work a whole lot of hours to be able to get ahead. Insurance is expensive especially if you have a family and it really doesn’t cover very much. You can be forced to work 16 hours everyday if the company believes it’s necessary.
