    Pros

    Vulcan has an above average benefits package, and the company is stable with few layoffs. They have made strides in making the workplace more fair towards women and minorities. They match charitable contributions, and the rank-and-file employees are very loyal and dedicated to the company, particularly the ones that have been there for many years.

    Cons

    Benefits are being quickly changed to make them just average, rather than above average. HR seems to spend a lot of time finding ways to keep salaries down. If a female employee doesn't play by the right 'Southern Belle' rules, she may as well leave, because there will be no promotions or decent raises. Most importantly, bad middle managers are protected at the expense of their direct reports. Upper management seems to be more concerned with how things look, than how they actually are.

    Advice to Management

    When you are told that a manager is creating a hostile work environment, don't just do the legally necessary thing - do the RIGHT thing.
