    Pros

    - Very good benefits - Provide Retirement benefits i.e. pension after 5 years of service - IT infrastructure is relatively current

    Cons

    - IT management lacks proper IT experience - Doesn't have flexible work environment (i.e. 1 or 2 day work from home) like modern IT department/company.

    Advice to Management

    - Should invest much more in IT to get proper competitive advantage - Instead of depending on the external consultants, should develop internal talent for long run benefits

    Pros

    They have great pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Horrible work/life balance. Management is dysfunctional. The cannot keep a Sales/Use Tax Manager. Reason, upper management. They give you vacation, but you're not allowed to use it.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at your Tax Management - there is a reason why you can't keep good people.

    Good company, nice people, decent work-life balance.

    Nothing but meeting after meeting and not much decision making. Expected to work long hours without much comp time. Very secretive, not much sharing of company plans.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to make a decision.

    Pros

    Benefits and wages are OK but getting worse by the year.

    Cons

    MMM does not practice what it preaches. No individuality, wants to be Southwest Airlines but has no idea how to get there on the employee side.

    Advice to Management

    Manage the business for the future and the stock price will take care of itself.


  9. Experience based on your manager

    I worked at Martin Marietta Materials full-time

    Pros

    I had the privilege to work with and for some very nice people at MLM. They were genuine people who cared about the employee as a person.

    Cons

    Each division of the company was like working at a completely different company - management style, culture, etc. The divisions were highly territorial.

    Advice to Management

    Think beyond quarterly returns. Most decisions were based on the upcoming quarter end financials which makes it hard to prepare the company for long term success.

    Pros

    Overall compensation and benefits package are competitive for most positions. Good team work inside of departments in most cases but issues across departments at times

    Cons

    Lots of churn right now in some departments about future direction. Different divisions are sometimes at odds with overall corporate ideas

    Advice to Management

    Consider impact of big decisions like possible mergers on individuals more and recognize uncertainty it is causing/impact on getting the current work done
