    I have been working at McJunkin Red Man MRC (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of change if you consider that a pro. Health insurance is great. the employees are nice. That's about all the pros I have...

    Cons

    They don't seem to value loyalty at all anymore - seems like its every man for himself. Profits are more important than giving people pay raises every year, which normally doesn't happen.

    Advice to Management

    Give your people pay raises every year like every other place! I won't really offer too much advice because it won't matter anyway. They have their own ideas already set, so it doesn't matter what anyone thinks.

    I worked at McJunkin Red Man MRC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Solid starting pay with regular, predictable raises and bonuses. Good vacation time and paid time off. Great insurance and ongoing training/education programs.

    Cons

    When the McJunkin family turned over control to Goldman Sachs the atmosphere changed overnight. The big quarterly bonuses denied for dubious reasons eventually became a purge of what they saw as overpaid midlevel sales positions.

    Advice to Management

    Run. Goldman Sachs obsession that no one outside of the financial world should make any real money will destroy MRC within the next few years. Its an already toxic atmosphere.
