Not bad just needing to have a culture change to get rid of the bad habits adopted over time

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Management is tough on moral it plays a big factor is how everyone feels. There are good day when everyone gets along fine. But most days employees are bummed before clocking in.

Pros

Free lunch from time to time

Cons

Short breaks sketchy management

Rewarding and great place for advancement

A great place for advancement and opportunities. Outokumpu Calvert Laboratory has a great cross training and progression program. This is no place to be stagnant. Team members are encouraged to progress and develop their skills. There's a systematic approach to the training of Laboratory Technicians from the time you start as an entry tech up to being able to lead a shift. The only thing that will stop you from progressing is if you don't want it yourself.

Pros

Training & Advancement

Cons

None

Management is terrible.

If you don’t kiss up then they don’t want you. It’s very difficult moving up with this company especially if you are in packaging. They let shift leader curse employees out with no reprecussions.

Good people to work with

It hs been too long for me to remember much. It was a very organized place with good people. I left to take a better job. It was an amicable departure.

In general this is a very good company to work for!

Must be able to work 12-hour shifts including holidays and weekends and be able to switch between day shift and night shift every two weeks. They offer a very good medical dental and vision plan plus 401K match!

Alright company but some snakes

Very good benefits for the family that you can get with a company but you can't trust the ones you work with because they will use you for their own beneficiary gain

Good job

Outokumpu is a good job. Poor management and lack of promotion is the reason I’m looking for other jobs. Also at times things get slow and we may have a lot of down time because we don’t have orders. But with better management and more customers it could be a really good job.

No concern for employee safety

This company only enforces safety procedures when it suits them. Depending on the day of the week, if corners can be cut without any major incidents they are all for it.

Not a bad place to work

Busy open environment. A lot of interaction with other business units/functions. Things don't get communicated using the proper channels. Not enough interaction with team members on the production floor.

Pros

Flexible work schedule

Cons

No opportunities for advacement

IT - wise. This place is horrible. They outsourced most of their IT jobs to and Indian offshore company, Wipro, who is very biased toward Offshore

I trained 18 offshore resources for 9 weeks at night to only be laid off. My salary was more than all of theirs combined, but my subject matter knowledge was miles ahead of the offshore contingent. Bad blood and bitterness is all I have to say about them.

Pros

Not many pros except for the bonus around Xmas time

Cons

Replaced by amateurs

very poor management

It used to be a great place to work. Evidently, their solution to Health and Safety concerns is to Terminate the employee for attendance points that aren't accurate.
