I have been working at Martin Marietta Materials

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.

    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.
