    - Should invest much more in IT to get proper competitive advantage

    Pros

    As a foreman you get a truck. There are some perks like you get to work while others sit at home in winter time.

    Cons

    Key management are self serving lying hypocrites. Good managers just fall in line to keep their jobs. There is a throw everyone under the bus to get the attention off of you mentality throughout the entire division that poisons everything.

    Advice to Management

    There is a reason why there is a high turn over rate. Look at the common denominator, its not the employees.

    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.

    Pros

    The pay was decent for an equipment operator
    Plenty of available overtime
    If you can get hired as a manager, human resources, or any office job, you'll have it made. They all typically leave early and yet have higher salaries. When tools get replaced, they get to take the old ones home!

    Cons

    The company is focused on the appearance of safety, but if you aren't a manager your concerns were never addressed. If an accident happened as a result, a root cause analysis was done and the operator or one of the other grunts is held responsible. Human Resources is a joke, NOBODY is looking out for the laborers or operators interests, they solely represent the managers, because of the hierarchy system within the company. I had to work 58hr/week almost every week and I considered myself grateful, some guys from Weeping Water mine claimed 70+ was common.

    The whole time I'd worked there I had NEVER seen a manager held accountable for ANYTHING. The company consistently promotes the WORST possible people for any management position. Promotions are done on a buddy system, jobs are never posted internally, and the guy that sucks up to the boss the most is the one who receives the promotion.

    I quit a year after never receiving a raise for what I thought was a promotion, I was promised a raise when taking the plant operator/maintenance position. I never received the raise, the pay scale increase went to a new hire that happened to be the manager's friend.

    I've created good friendships while working for Martin Marietta, I'd recently talked with some of my friends who say the job has gotten even worse since I've left. Three have and one currently is retiring early as a result, the rest are currently searching for different jobs.

    Advice to Management

    YOU are the problem, look at yourself in the mirror, look at the managers you promoted working under you, and think about the people that have been fired, hurt, or killed while trying to follow your flawed leadership. Think of one of your children or family members being put in that position, ask yourself if you are where you are today because you're good at what you do, or because you sucked up to your boss.

    Recognize and promote the people that have an understanding of how the operation works, and truly care and take pride in their work, mine didn't....

    Pros

    There are no reason to work here

    Cons

    You have no family life you work 60 to 80 hours every week and dont plan on weekend life either they take that away too. Communication is horrible between higher ups. If your single or older with kids grown go ahead apply. They money isnt really worth it you end up giving more back to the government anyways. Theres no room for advancement.Horrible place to work plain and simple.

    Advice to Management

    Stop saying your family friendly when you care nothing about employees family.
