    I worked at Murphy-Hoffman full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits and paid time off are decent. Co-workers in the trenches are friendly but be careful who you vent to.

    Cons

    Not an equal opportunity employer. Very racist upper management and they will walk all over you. The more you do (if female or not Caucasian) the more they take and with no monetary or verbal acknowledgement, not even a thank you.

    Advice to Management

    Start listening to your employees on the ground. They are the ones dealing with the day to day operations and your customers. Asking another upper management person for advice on new policies or changes in current ones is a waste of time because none of them know how to do the task that are demanded from your people on the ground. Also understand that your position codes are just that CODES! I cannot think of one location you have that mirrors another one, they are all different and most are doing the work of 3 people. More importantly if you want to know why a location is not successful try going there for a week and observing the obstacles your staff on the ground are dealing with every day instead of taking the word of you horrible middle managers you have in place that are there only because of their ability to kiss you tail and make the cool kids club like a bunch of egotistical high school boys! They manipulate you to no end and your to busy looking at incorrect data on spreadsheets to notice. Do you ever go and check the numbers your self? How about call the people at the branch busting their tails for you pocket? How's that fuel tax group working out? Anymore excuses on why they can't produce one valid report? Do you even care that you have thrown hundreds of thousands of dollars away all because you have a team of incompetent people who know nothing about fuel tax or how it works. They just keep hiding it from you. Pointing to middle accounting departments or office specialist when it has nothing to do with them. Just another example of asking fellow upper managers for help on making changes or implementing new processes. Don't you think you should ask the people who perform these task for your company on a daily basis for this information and for their input? I guess that would actually require you to know who your employees are and what they do for you and your company.

    I worked at Murphy-Hoffman full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company provides an opportunity to earn general work experience for entry-level employees. The benefits are solid, and there is opportunity for advancement. Corporate officers and the majority of co-workers are wonderful to work with.

    Cons

    Moderately high turn over rate inhibits the ability to establish internal routines which can lead to external ambiguity. Limited direct/formal training for some job types. Departmental policies and procedures are relatively inconsistent from location to location and often change too frequently. Maintaining a work-life balance is extremely difficult, and 50, sometimes 60+ hour work weeks should be expected for low level, salaried employees.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate performance from both the top down and the bottom up because the potential long-term value gained from loyal and dedicated lower management is too great to be overlooked.
