    I have been working at Lehigh Hanson full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Company is a part a large global organization, HeidelbergCement, which in the past 25 years has really moved from being a static German company to an impressive industry leader. IT is very state-of-the-art. A lot of sharp people, who seem to be much younger than the industry average Compensation is very competitive. Strong feeling of job security. Company has been growing at a good speed and made several large acquisitions which they have successfully integrated.

    Cons

    Due to the size of the company, there has is naturally a large amount of reporting and a fair amount of bureaucracy. Not much company spirit or enthusiasm. Lehigh North corporate environment is a bit sleepy.

    I worked with Lehigh hanson for 17 yrs, I was told I was gonna get a raise if I stayed with the company so I did , assuming id get it. Two checks later and no raise . I call the manager and he tells me to do what ever I halfto do. What a away to treat a 17 yr employee.

    Advice to Management

    don't tell someone your giving out raises and then not give it to them.

    Pros

    They are Huge on work-life balance. They do a lot of wellness activities that are company sponsored that you and your family can attend.

    Cons

    They talk about developing people but don't do it, it's a lot of who you know not what you know.

    Advice to Management

    If you're going to talk about developing people then you need to do it, very disappointing.

    I have been with the company for a little over two years. I love my department and the support that is provided. Management in our department makes sure that we have the tools necessary to achieve our goals. There is always a push to stretch ourselves and to grow to make ourselves the best professionals in the business.

    Cons

    I can't think of any.
