    I worked at Hanson Building Products full-time

    Pros

    The business managers were great to work with on projects.

    Cons

    Horrible leadership skills and communication from IT management. Not able to clearly assign projects and roles. Major communication problems and little knowledge of processes in own environment.

    Advice to Management

    It management needs to study the art of communication and leading people or just go back to being a worker bee and get out of leadership.

    Pros

    The corporate office has nice working environment. Most of the people I had been working with are friendly. The company provided good benefits.

    some senior management should probably care more about the group members, spend more time on getting thoughts from each individual.

    I have been working at Hanson Building Products full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    This is dependent on your plant. Some plants are far better than others. Company vehicle is a huge perk that is very rare these days

    Cons

    Management doesn't really care about you or the value you bring to the table. The on going problems are never really fixed.

        I worked at Hanson Building Products

        Pros

        Large company so many resources to any computer programs or IT help you may need. Plants largely operate on their own without much micromanagement. Bosses answer the phone and are available when called upon for assistance. No issues getting any supplies needed within couple days

        Cons

        Recently bought by investment company so they are downsizing overhead costs on plants that lose money. Poor daily process. Superiors request all improvement ideas go through them which they then twist or pawn off as their own and slows down everything. Management disconnected from plants and have poor problem solving and leadership skills. "Cover your own a**" and "Its not my fault" kind of culture. Management struggles...

        Advice to Management

        A good manager guides their team, not leads. You cant try to tell a plant how to run daily activities without taking people's daily needs to complete their jobs into consideration because you're too disconnected.
