    I have been working at Aggregate Industries UK full-time

    Pros

    Some of the best benefits out there. Seems like a good safe place to work. Plenty of hours and pay is upwards on the higher end of payscale. I was offered the job, now just waiting on my pre-employment paperwork to go through.

    Cons

    Good ole corporate America. They're doing the most thorough investigation of myself that I have ever seen. Backround, credit, dac, ect... I'm actually kinda worried about not getting the job cause my credit isn't good enough?

    Advice to Management

    No advice I can give at this time. I wish America wasn't the way it is now...corporate America has taken over

    I worked at Aggregate Industries UK (More than a year)

    Pros

    Easy to get along with people, everyone likes to have fun, but is serious when needed. A company truck is included

    Cons

    Low pay for management, not a whole lot of hours required, about 50, but no overtime compensation. Not very many cons

    Pros

    Large Company (LafargeHolcim) benefits.
    Driver gets to be left alone most of the time.

    Cons

    Poor management - drivers not rewarded in any way.
    They always recognize the bad, never recognize the good work.
    As with anywhere, some people can get on the inside track with managers.
    Low hours in winter, too much work in summer.

    Advice to Management

    Either pay market wages or treat people much better. Either one would suffice.

    Pros

    Job life balance. Good company reputation, good compensation. Part of the largest company in the construction and building materials (LafargeHolcim)

    Cons

    Lack of career path, few resources to accomplish all corporate initiatives. Too much change in a compress time frame. Lack of support practical from support functions such as environmental and safety. These functions provide plenty of theoretical guidance but no practical support to actually implement their initiatives.

    Advice to Management

    Work more on human capital development and work with high potential employees to get them ready for further advancement

    Pros

    Benefits are pretty good here.

    Cons

    Very immature and unethical HR dept. Favoritism and gossip. Upper management picks favorites and conducts crooked behavior towards highly reputable good workers simply from he said/she said. Don't give good raises or recognize good quality employees. Treat good employees distastefully. Company has lost so far, 6 of their top notch employees and about to lose more due to work overload and poor recognition for their work and poor pay. Use and abuse. Very very micro and unethical management and HR. Many unhappy employees.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of good employees and don't allow them to be bullied and treated unfairly and unethically just because you listen to what their bullying boss says vs listening to the rest of the people. Ridiculously unethical and unprofessional management. Hire competent mature HR people vs immature unprofessional people that can't retain good employees because they don't know how to deal with issues in the company and pick favorites. Focus on and recognize people's work. This company is continuing to lose good people. Very bad environment.
