    Pros

    Very good internship program. Given a chance to do meaningful work and present to people that matter at the end of the summer.

    Cons

    Not the most exciting industry. Only $15 an hour for interns.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Smart people, but aging. Seems like a rapid move up the food chain is unlikely, even if you're smarter than the rest.

    I have been working at ArcelorMittal USA full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Solid compensation at entry level, good benefits including medical & dental, 401k match, and bonus structure. Also tuition reimbursement with 2 years commitment after completion. High value responsibilities at early stages depending on manager. Opportunities available as older generations start to retire at a quicker pace.

    Cons

    Legacy systems have trouble integrating. Old ideals - trouble with implementing new ways of thinking. Vacation progression very slow (2 weeks starting, 3 wks after 5 years).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to improve work environment and try to catch up with changing times as far as work-life balance. Vacation could be much more progressive.

    I worked at ArcelorMittal USA full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Plenty to do and learn

    Cons

    Salaried employees are only appreciated when they respond to a disaster otherwise they are compensated far less than an hourly union employee. There is no incentive to remain long term salaried employee. Your best bet is to pick up a three or four years experience and move on to better pay and benefits. That is exactly what the personnel people tell new salaried employees. " this is a flat organization that strive to pay Median pay rate for companies it's size, by want exceptional performers"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat salaried employees much better. Create more layers of management to provide opportunities for advancement if you want to keep any young people for more than 3 - 5 years.

    Pros

    They are a large enough company that it is possible to move around between departments.

    Cons

    The company itself doesn't value its employees, their time, or their efforts. There is never enough money to make the upgrades necessary to the equipment.
