    I have been working at Martin Marietta Materials full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits and flexibility for Salaried employees is the best around

    Cons

    Not as friendly as an environment as they try to portray in the interviews. Upper management thinks they're better than everyone else and will throw any issues you bring to them in your face.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so full of yourselves, listen to your employees and stop playing the blame game.

    Pros

    They claim safety is extremely important to them, good all around insurance package, pension plan, paid holidays and paid time off, bonus (salary only), sick time (salary only), choice of company car if you travel a lot, managers/coworkers are nice people for the most part, good HR managers, office location is in a decent area, depending on the job you will see a lot of the operations, CEO is growth minded and I expect the company to increase in size, can keep your job even if you aren't very good at what you do.

    Cons

    MUCH LOWER PAY than most companies, Advancement/Professional Growth is very limited, High rate of turnover, Little respect for manager's abilities, skills or experience, NEVER felt like I was working for a world-class organization, People are routinely assigned to tasks that they have no experience with.

    Company Policy and Systems training is non existent; must learn on your own.

    Safety is preached, but it is not practiced nearly as heavily as they claim.

    Dallas office is an "open concept" meaning you can see and hear EVERYONE - no offices, no cubicles, etc.

    NOT a family atmosphere

    Advice to Management

    Study up on your employees and try to understand their strengths so you can ultimately understand what they actually do for a living.

    Pros

    Good insurance and retirement benefits. They have alot of safety rules and give everyone the right to stop any job if you feel that it is not being done safely.

    Cons

    Pay rate is much lower than average and there is very little opportunity for advancement. The work schedule changes on a daily basis and many times they will wait until the last minute to tell you if you're working or not. There is no appreciation for doing more than is asked of you. They only let you know when you didnt do as good as they would have liked.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to treat your employees with respect and let them know that you appreciate the time and work that they put in

    Pros

    Decent salary. 401k. Vacations. Most co-workers were like family. We used to do great Christmas parties and birthday celebrations.

    Cons

    Senior management consisted of a group of unethical guys. I heard they were eventually let go. I would not have left the company if corporate had admitted the problems sooner.

    Advice to Management

    The opinion of non managers should matter too.

    Pros

    Great benefits including a pension plan. They are very supportive and friendly. Good working environment. Their safety program is one of the best.

    Cons

    A few managers are unethical and seems like they are untouchable. There is not a structured succession planning nor a supportive way to advance in your career

    Advice to Management

    They could be more aggressive on the decisions regarding poor management performance. They can also improve communication in all channels.

    Pros

    Safety is a major consideration while working. All proper procedures are followed to allow for a safe work environment. Benefits start from the first day of employment.

    Cons

    There is a disconnect between management and the workers. Scheduling has been inconsistent and your first month is frustrating because you get bounced around between positions. Many things are fixed to get by instead of fixed properly.

    Advice to Management

    Create an incentive program to motivate all employees to work together.
