    I worked at Martin Marietta Materials

    Pros

    None. There were no pros.

    Cons

    Was hired by a manager who did not have clear goals or job duties for me. Completely ignored my requests for work then passed me off to another manager who micro-managed my day. Tried to work with that manager, but they did not want to be accountable or make any effort at communication directly with me. Overall - lack of a decent manager resulted in a daily stressful environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out BEFORE you hire an employee what their job duties should entail.

    I worked at Martin Marietta Materials full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good crew, poorly paid, but always had money for new trucks, cook outs, parties, trips and showed no interest in securing the mine site to prevent children from coming onto the mine site and falling off a 200 foot high wall (cliff)

    Cons

    Very poor management, crew, poorly paid, but always had money for new trucks, cook outs, parties, trips and showed no interest in securing the mine site to prevent children from coming onto the mine site and falling off a 200 foot high wall (cliff)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't buy new UN needed trucks spend the money to repair equipment, routinely

    Pros

    They pay you but not very well. They do have some newer plants but that means fewer people to keep cost down.

    Cons

    You get to work all of the time. You start at 5 am and get to go home around 7 pm. Don't forget you get to work the weekends also. Don't come in on Sunday you get yelled at. Sales, QC, HR, and Management all spend time pointing fingers and trying to stab one another in the back. They do not fix the actual problems. So if you like long crushing hours and getting blamed when your employees do something dumb its a great company to work for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to hire and retain managers. You cannot rely on three or so people to run a 24/7 operation.

    I worked at Martin Marietta Materials full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The Denver Area has the best people, specifically the truck drivers, that I have ever met in my entire life. They are simply an incredible bunch.

    Cons

    The Denver Area has the worst people, specifically the sales, QC department heads, and upper management, that I have ever met in my entire life. They are simply an awful bunch.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not expect that insults, degrading behavior, threats, physical threats, backstabbing, and politics will get you far with your employees.

    It pays the bills, but stay out of the operations side if you can.

    I have been working at Martin Marietta Materials full-time

    Pros

    Pay is OK, maybe slightly below industry standards. Most people are nice to work with.

    Cons

    Area management expects those who supervise and manage the quarries to do so with almost no manpower or resources. Very common for a manager to be doing 2 or more people's duties for months at a time because running lean is the "new normal". 12+ hour days are the standard, plus mandatory weekend work. Not a good fit if you have anything in your life that interests you besides work, because the work/life balance is a joke.

    If you have an engineering or other degree I would recommend district/division/corporate positions only, because you will get worked to death in the operations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Staff the operations adequately. Don't expect salaried employees to work an absurd amount of hours. Burned out employees are not safe or effective.
