I worked at Martin Marietta Materials

Pros

Large company with strong financial support. Knowledgeable and fair management with skilled workers. Metropolitan area with good benefits. Opportunities for advancement if showing proper work ethic and aptitude. High levels of responsibility given to workers, team camaraderie strong. The company leadership was impressive with a heavy focus on safety practices and ensuring a positive and safe work envinronment. Plenty of opportunities for workers to discuss benefits and health insurance questions, 401-k and various HR issues, were made available. Leadership from mine management and supervisors was prominent and education of various tasks was always performed in a professional manner by the more experienced mine workers.

Cons

Hours for wage employees can be very long. Overtime offsets long hours but can have multiple weeks in a row much longer hours than what would be expected.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Not too heavily involved with senior management from the position I was in, and thus would not have any real advice.

    Pros

    One of the best things about Martin Marietta Materials is the people. Its a solid, ethical company.

    Cons

    Based on business need, sometimes there is not as much flexibility as would be preferred. However, management is usually quite tolerant of work/life balance issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Steve Zelnak and Ward Nye represent MMM very well. They present strong leaderships skills both internally to employees and externally to the market. They are wonderful leaders and very strong individuals with excellent job knowledge and presence.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
