Good income from a company operating in a challenging industry

Maintenance Technician Electric (Current Employee)
Fairfield, AL (US)

I have been working at United States Steel full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGreat Income for Blue Collar worker, Good insurance benefits, Hard to get fired once you get in, extremely safety conscious.

ConsRotating schedules, tough on family, work schedule dictates life, very very poor training. Your skills degrade year after year. Union officials worry more about feathering their own nest and defending poor worker standards than promoting a good workforce for the company.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive more responsibility to workers, provide incentive for cost savings, provide continuing education for employee fields, demand more expertise in management, about management, and pay them for that,

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good job at a dying company

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at United States Steel

ProsGreat pay, and benefits for the amount of work.

ConsEverything is dirty, the air, the desks, the city, the management.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake an investment in the people who are trying to get some work done. Quit supporting the lazy managers with the 70's attitude who recall fondly the days of drinking and sleeping on the job where women weren't allowed.....

there is a lot of training and a lot to learn about.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at United States Steel

Prosgood training in safety and in working with members of a labor union. The pay is good and there is a lot of opportunity.

Consthe job is dangerous and there are some people who are tough to get along with. You must always be aware of whats going on around you.

somewhat fair if you do your research...pending what location you work, women beware

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at United States Steel full-time for more than 3 years

Proschill work environment depending on your manager and the location in which you work

great benefits

company cc - so no waiting on a corporate reimbursement

relocation package

willing to invest in new technology to aid with your work

hard to get fired

Consnew CEO getting rid of lots of employee perks

women make severely less unless you have high up connections

HR and manager will work together to avoid lawsuit after the fact (my title was changed once to save their behinds on salary differences between sexes) Of course they didn't admit to this but I'm far from stupid.

creeping at a snails pace to diversify...good old boys club

Interesting Work. Overly Bureaucratic.

IT Consultant (Current Employee)

I have been working at United States Steel full-time

ProsThe works interesting. Good pay & benefits. Some great coworkers. Potentially rewarding / fulfilling work.

ConsOverly bureaucratic. Stressful. Too much work to do. Not enough time and people to do it.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere are as many managers as worker bees and much of managers time is spent on meaningless managerial tasks. Spend more time and money on self motivated well placed workers. Also, the company is headquarters heavy and plant light on staffing. I feel like the plants are where the company stands to make the most money and thus having enough good people at the plants to find all those opportunities to make money is where it's at.

– I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

This is a decent company with good intentions and flawed practices towards its employees.
