I have been working at Schnitzer Steel full-time (less than an year)Pros
Talented individuals-The current and incoming staff are incredibly talented and have made a tangible impact on the culture of the organization.
Corporate culture-It is never easy for a 100 year old company to change, but Schnitzer is taking the steps necessary to make the changes. From new staff, to better communication they are working towards creating an amazing organization.
Technology - Technology is up to date and and the workspaces are awesome. If you have an issue with your equipment it takes hours, not days or weeks to resolve.Cons
Change doesn't necessarily come quickly or easily. It takes time and effort to make things happen.
Attitudes of some long-term employees are negative. They'd rather complain that play an active role in creating positive change.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Keep moving forward. Make the hard decisions knowing they are the right decisions. Make sure your communication is clear. Most of all, make sure you hire the best staff across the country. Make sure your field leadership treats their staff well.RecommendsNeutral OutlookApproves of CEO
