    I worked at Martin Marietta Materials full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very competitive, high end pay. Very competitive benefits, including Employer matched 401k. Mostly Monday - Friday, some Saturdays. Overtime not unusual.

    Cons

    Working overtime is not unusual. If you don't like extra hours, not the job for you. Poor management. Nice to talk to but can be unfair if you cross them.

    Advice to Management

    Reap what you sow.

    I worked at Martin Marietta Materials full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They pay well but, at the time you had to put in the hours for it. At one point I was working 80 to 90 hours a week but now they are working 6 81/2 hour days. I loved the people that I worked with on a normal basis.

    Cons

    Management will lie right to your face. There is a horrible relationship between management and the Union. When I had left management had just went against the contract and changed our hours. They have since lost in court and had to change to hours to something different.

    Advice to Management

    Work with the union stop trying to go around it and stop lying to your employees.

    I worked at Martin Marietta Materials full-time (More than 10 years)

    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

    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

    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.

    They have great pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Horrible work/life balance. Management is dysfunctional. The cannot keep a Sales/Use Tax Manager. Reason, upper management. They give you vacation, but you're not allowed to use it.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at your Tax Management - there is a reason why you can't keep good people.

    Pros

    Benefits and wages are OK but getting worse by the year.

    Cons

    MMM does not practice what it preaches. No individuality, wants to be Southwest Airlines but has no idea how to get there on the employee side.

    Advice to Management

    Manage the business for the future and the stock price will take care of itself.

    Pros

    People at facility I worked at were great, helpful. Good pay and plant operations manager let you know you were doing well and was appreciated. Greatly enjoyed working with my co-workers and job responsibilities.

    Cons

    Martin Marietta owned facility for only 1 year before deciding they couldn't properly manage efficiently in California and they were located in North Carolina. Should have been thought out thoroughly before making the purchase. You put a lot of good people out on the street. And at the meeting when they told us the plant was sold and would be shut down, the big shots from North Carolina acted like no big deal. They still had their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Think thoroughly and analyze your actions before you actually do something.
