I worked at Central Concrete Supply Co, Inc. full-time

Pros

Management staff is highly qualified and works well with each other. Relationship between management and staff is largely very good. Senior management is highly supportive and genuinely concerned with the well being of the team.

Cons

Largely as a result of the economy, some management positions are tasked with broad job descriptions. This provides opportunity for career enhancement, but also distracts from the ability to focus on individual areas of endeavor.

Advice to Management

Continue with the visionary, progressive, and change-management focus.

    Pros

    A paycheck! When you need a paycheck and would rather play the game of office politics, than be dedicated to doing a great job at your position, then this is the place for you! Be sure to start at an entry-level position to ensure those great office politics. They have just the manager for you! Just make sure you know how to play "the game."

    Cons

    Certain management teams tend to treat employees as if they were peons rather than counterparts/colleagues working together to succeed in the big picture!

    Advice to Management

    Treat EVERY employee as if they were your counterpart or manager! A GOOD manager is a person that wants you to move up, know their job duties and more, because that means he/she is doing their job correctly. If a manager can not retain employees, hires all of their friends from previous companies and gets rid of employees for questionable reasons, then the problem lies with the manager and will never be fixed until the manager is corrected or let go. This is usually a tactic to mask their lack of performance. Since management can be intimidating at times, set up a generic email account or hotline for employees to voice or email their concerns. This will cause management to be sure that they are doing their job correctly and will also ensure that the BAD managers are let go. You are at fault as well, if you stand to the side and watch with a blind eye, regardless if it is not your place to make your voice heard.

    I worked at Central Concrete Supply Co, Inc. as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work at the lab was hands on and you learn a lot about what goes into making concrete and how it applies to civil engineering. The lab technicians and project managers were also very knowledgeable.

    Cons

    Daily lab testing work can get routine and boring. Trial batching concrete can also be very physically demanding and tiring if the lab is undermanned.
