    I have been working at Martin Midstream Partners as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Gave me the experience I needed to get a full time offer. Lots of good people here.

    Cons

    Small town. Lack of management.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your people with respect. Focus on being a leading not being a boss

    Pros

    There are great employees throughout that truly, work hard and do all they can to help you in any way. Safety is a good example.

    Cons

    Martin Transport is ran by idiots and clowns that have taken which once was a great company and ruined it. Egos, lack of leadership and stupidity are running this company.

    Advice to Management

    Replace your so called leadership now.

    I worked at Martin Midstream Partners full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are pretty good.
    There are some decent people working there

    Cons

    Only way to advance is to brown nose, regardless of performance.
    Management will lie to keep you from getting promoted to another department, then put false information on your performance review to avoid paying you more while touting integrity and respect.
    VP from corporate comes in and changes marketing strategy without knowing customer base causing severe decline in sales.
    Any disagreement or questioning of VP decree is detrimental to your career.
    Extreme micromanagement, stripping professional employees of authority to do their job.
    Company wide hiring and pay freeze due to mismanagement.
    Lack of communication.
    There are many more but can't list them all here

    Advice to Management

    Look at what the managers and especially VP's are doing to the company and get rid of the bad ones. Do a company wide anonymous survey and find out what the employees really think but won't say due to endangering their job, and act on it.

    I worked at Martin Midstream Partners as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I learned a lot about a subject matter I was unfamiliar with. Personal growth during my time here was extremely high due to the challenges I faced, and for that I am thankful. Once I developed a rapport with my peers it was a helpful environment.

    Cons

    As an intern the program was uncoordinated, I am not sure they had ever had an intern before. The environment was fast paced for some and laid back for others. I felt underutilized and felt underdeveloped. I am sure some of this was my fault, however without any constructive feedback there was little I could do. Trust really seemed to be a big issue here. Pass thru billing was not inline with industry standards when the public side dealt with the private side, this was worrisome.

    Advice to Management

    Enable your mid level managers to perform some of the tasks that senior management performs, or get rid of them and hire mid level management that you can trust. People here fear for their jobs, which is an unhealthy environment.

    Pros

    Some good people working here.
    Insurance is ok, for now

    Cons

    Poor management.
    Only brown nosing micro-managers are promoted
    management would rather hire less qualified manager from outside rather than promote more qualified people from within, unless they are suck ups.
    Entering third year of company wide pay freeze
    Company is cutting employee benefits, they just announced that the 401k match is now 50% on 3% down from 100% on first 3% and 50% on the next 2%
    Management goes to 5 star resorts for meetings and shows, yet cut benefits rather than cut out the resort shows/meetings, but justify it because they're "flying commercial instead of private jet"
    Bonuses are nearly non-existent unless you are a brownnoser, performance means nothing
    Management doesn't support employees at all in doing their job

    Advice to Management

    Promote the best and brightest, not "yes men"
    Stop cutting benefits and bonuses and freezing pay
    Show your employees some appreciation, treat them well and you will benefit many times more than it cost you

    Pros

    Benefits are good
    Mostly good people to work with.
    Pay starting out is decent
    Owner/CEO seems like a personable guy, and seems to have/follow christian values, and seems to care about employees.

    Cons

    Pay could be better for what is expected
    Cutting bonuses and other perks in a record year (operating income, revenue and gross profit) while expecting more of employees, doesn't send a positive message to employees.
    Corporate management at the VP level is out of touch with reality and doesn't understand the customer while dictating what they want, typical corporate VP mindset.
    Communication between management and professional employees is horrible
    Results aren't rewarded (see above) unless you are a suck up
    Promotions are based on your ability to suck up and stroke the egos of management, instead of your ability to do your job and results

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you know your customer
    Reward performance instead of brown-nosing
    COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR PROFESSIONAL EMPLOYEES!!!!!
