    I worked at Vulcan Materials full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits Good people Big company so there are opportunities to relocate

    Cons

    Negative company culture. The culture encourages people to point fingers when mistakes are made, pass the buck, and put profits over people Poor management. Micromanage and don't do the work to allow their employees to be successful at the job. It starts at the very top and the negative effects seep all the way to the quarry level. If it's broke, apologize but never fix the problem Vulcan markets itself as an industry leader so they rush to make changes with no preparation, leaving employees and customers frustrated.
