    I worked at ArcelorMittal Dofasco full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Still a stable work environment where you can make decent money until you retire

    Cons

    Pays less than industry average in almost all area's. They make up for this with profit sharing, VCP and overtime. But they have been cutting back on almost everything, no more shift premiums, less vacation, no more pension. Expect this to continue and make your peace with it before you join.

    I worked at ArcelorMittal Dofasco full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The company culture and work-life balance is great. Had the opportunity to work with extremely smart and talented people who are always there to help. Good benefits too. Constantly learning something new everyday

    Cons

    Pay is slightly on the lower side especially for entry-level positions compared to other companies for similar positions. Lack of fresh new minds in the IT/software space. Many have been around for a long time and as such are not so open to new ideas which can get frustrating.

    Pros

    great people, lots of room to learn

    Cons

    almost like its 10 different companies (which is good or bad depending on your view)

    Advice to Management

    Figure out how to have people at the top actually know what they are making decisions about. The company is very large and diverse, so decisions need to be made by those with knowledge, not just a title.

    I have been working at ArcelorMittal Dofasco full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    98% of the people working there are very nice and willing to help you.

    Cons

    They don't give you a choice when it comes to working shutdowns, you have to be there unless you are sick.

    Advice to Management

    There is no work/life balance in our group at Dofasco, it is all work and we should be staffed appropriately so that we can have life. Otherwise you work your employees like prisoners sentenced to hard labor.
