    Pros

    The employees I support on a daily basis are friendly and we have developed a bond and respect for one another.

    Cons

    The company is growing rapidly and we are being put under a lot stress and asked to do more than we can handle then being reprimanded for not finishing our projects.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to let go of those that are not performing and let us hire someone that wants to be part of a hard working team.

    Pros

    Unimin is a great place to work

    Cons

    There is to much of a buddy,buddy system, and discrimination when it come down to promotions and job hiring. The management don't treat employees with any respect they just want the job done.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate need to send the directors to their sites and have them to talk to the employees not the management because the moral is so low because no one is treated with respect. the employees are the ones that run the plant management just their getting a pay check and doing nothing, corporate needs to investigate when the employees feel like this.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, especially the health insurance - second to none. Very competitive wages. Continually focused on employee's safety. Room for advancement if you apply yourself.

    Cons

    Excessive documentation of your almost every move - The paper trails are endless...

    Advice to Management

    Continue on as is, with the exception of considering the elimination of some of the massive paperwork

    Pros

    Efficient, corporate based engineering and mine planning allows resources to be shared with all plants in a regional zone while plant management is focused generally on their single facility to reach their shared corporate goals

    Cons

    While efficient, corporate based engineering and mine planning allows resources to be shared with all plants in a regional zone and plant management is focused generally on their single facility to reach their shared corporate goals are usually classified as a pro, micro-management is now to the point they are a con as well.

    Advice to Management

    Give more control back to the plant managers
