    I worked at Unimin full-time (more than 10 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Give more control back to the plant managers

    Pros

    Good benefits, good benefits, good benefits until you retire then nothing,

    Cons

    Untrustworthy management, seniority not recognized, shift work not recognized, no shift differential, no room to advance, don't care about employees if though they will say different.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show they appreciate long term loyal workers, pay shift differential and overtime benefits to non-PHD's, don't lie on reviews, don't show favoritism.

    I have been working at Unimin

    Pros

    Unimin is great if you are in s good division.The health insurance is good. Operation division is the best to work in. There are a lot of promotion opportunities.

    Cons

    Analytical Services and R&D is the worst. It is poorly managed all the way to corporate, the salaries are also the lowest even though it is the most educated division in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Unimin is an OK corporation unless you are unlucky enough to work in Analytical Services or R&D. Everyone in the whole corporation knows it but nothing is ever done.
