    I worked at Martin Marietta Materials full-time

    Pros

    Decent pay. Good benefits

    Cons

    Abysmal management. One manager was simply incompetent while others around enabled this to continue far too long. Constant drain on your psyche with high stress levels and no replenishment. Old school approach to technology despite the rows of magazines stating MMM is a top 500 leader in tech (what a joke).

    Advice to Management

    Give back to your employees. Allow for telecommute days or something similar. Stressed out people working full weeks AND on-call is a recipe for disaster (as evident by the high turn over)

    I have been working at Martin Marietta Materials full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great Fortune 500 company to work for that has a solid reputation in the workforce and solid business presence. Great benefits are offered to their employees and depending on the team / district that you work for, can be a wonderful place to build a long lasting career. Many employees stay with the company for multiple decades which is impressive.

    Cons

    Career path for accounting and finance seems to end without CPA license

    Advice to Management

    I would like to see an emphasis made on career development, motivational management training, and work place culture become more of a focus.

    Pros

    The management staff and training staff are wonderful. They really get you psyched ringer out there and work for them.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the department I was in was fragmented and decentralized. There is absolutely no order and entirely not enough experience. There are sever ways to skin a cat but you get a mess if you employ all of them at once. Very poor planning and way too much concern about how much u will owe for what little is issued to you and access to necessary parts that repairs take in My opinion way longer than they should.

    Advice to Management

    Assign a job, assign a temp Lead man. Issue a scope of work and have supervisors if not put repairmen on track then design a general outline with procedures for workers to have a basic idea of what to do (since many don't have a clue)

    Pros

    Good safe work environment, Good wages, Good Safety program, ethics program.

    Cons

    All business, they say that their employees are their number 1 asset, but .

    Advice to Management

    Learn to be more truthful to your employee's, so they don't buy a house or something, thinking that they have a long future with your organization.
