Management sucks
Storeroom Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Tehachapi, CANovember 1, 2017
If management doesnt like you...You are screwed.
No one cares about you outside that fence. Managers are rude and condescending. If you aren't in with the in crowd you are not treated well at all.
Cons
No bonus for certain people

Inexperienced upper management
Senior Accountant (Former Employee) –  Irving, TXOctober 4, 2017
They have high turnover in their accounting department. They have accounting managers that are knowledgeable in accounting but are not experienced nor good at managing people or having their backs.. People are promoted as to how much they become friends with the director of accounting not based an actual ability.
Pros
good location
Cons

Nice place to work
Production Foreman (Former Employee) –  Tyrone, GASeptember 9, 2017
Day started at 6:30am with safety meeting and task if anything different needed to be done if not everyone new their job. Managing different type of people, self starter and slackers. The upper management right above myself had picks and pets something that I totally disagree with in a workforce. The hardest part of the job was not having manpower always under staff. The most enjoyable part of the job was doing what you enjoy and working with some great guy's.

Talent Acquisition Representative (Former Employee) –  Irving, TXSeptember 8, 2017
I did like working here but job security was uncertain. Long working hours are not verbally communicated but expected. Prefer for you not to take a lunch.

Old School Company
LMS ADMINISTRATOR & VIDEOGRAPHER (Former Employee) –  Irving, TXAugust 9, 2017
First of all, LH's corporate office is not a bad place to work if you don't mind being micro-managed by people who often times don't really know what your job is. The upper management seems stuck in the 1970's as far as their attitudes go.I found this quite frustrating in the nearly 5 years I worked there.

The company expects you to be physically in the office at your desk working, even if you have a laptop and the work you do could be done from anywhere in the world with an Internet connection. You might as well not have a personal life as leaving early to take your kids to school or sporting activities are frowned upon. They also watch you like a hawk to make sure you come in on time and leave on time.

Millennials are frustrated quickly here as they can't move up the ladder as quickly as at other places. People in senior leadership positions typically have been with the company or in the industry for decades and moved up slowly through the ranks. New ideas and methods are quickly challenged or dismissed.

White males are quietly given preferential treatment over minorities and females. I've seen highly talented and productive minority and or female managers and executives fired for trying to make progressive moves toward racial equality and professional competency-driven goals and methods, rocking the "good-old boy" way of doing things.

I learned a lot from OJT and finding the training resources I needed on my own as there was no formal development plan in place. In fact, the LMS has recently been geared toward developing the leadership positions and not for the
  more... support folks. Their training programs seem to be marching backward.

The hardest part of the job was working directly under a director who knew nothing about my job nor what it was about after our training manager was let go. It was frustrating at best as I had very little to do other than updating records and "keeping the lights on".

The most enjoyable part of my job was learning new systems and methods and challenging myself daily. I also enjoyed travelling from time to time across North America for different projects.

Good People / Poor Management
Shift Foreman (Former Employee) –  Evansville, PAAugust 8, 2017
Its' feast or famine with the amount of work. Little to no preventative maintenance is done, so almost everything is run til failure. Management Monday morning quarterbacks your decisions but doesn't do anything about fixing the problems that led to said decisions. Hot and dirty atmosphere. Equipment isn't taken care of and the Union employee's all play the not-my-job line. Most care about the company's survival but don't put forth the effort to make it better. Lot of paperwork or logging of useless "information of the day" but then get questioned about the amount of time you spend in the office.
Pros
Good pay, easy work, some free lunches
Cons
Micromanaged, rotating shift work with only 1 free weekend per month

Death Spiral
Operator/Laborer (Former Employee) –  New YorkJuly 18, 2017
Micromanaging is a major problem for management. Weekly hours change with little notice. No leeway for sickness. Poor wages for work required. Only people who get anywhere are the liars and the ones who know somebody. Big talk of safety but never follow up on it until Msha or DEC are around.
Pros
Seasonal and Co workers
Cons
Short breaks, Varying hours for poor pay and never doing enough to satisfy

Horrible culture and Management
Operator (Current Employee) –  Chico, TXJuly 17, 2017
The culture consists of employees being put against one another by management because management does not want to follow up. Management hires their friends and family creating nepotism and conflicts of interest. They will work you to the bone 7 days a week 12 to 14 hours a day. The weekends they take off and you are unsupervised if there is an accident. If there is an accident management will find fault in some form or fashion with the employee. There is a total lack of professionalism and people management skills. You will be cussed out, and have managers who get in your face. They also say safety is their number one concern, it is not. Ive been on a high wall during a thunder storm in a wiggle tail, they do not care about their people at all.
Pros
vision is good
Cons
long hours, no work life balance, awful management, no growth opportunities

No Where To Go
Mineral Resources, Royalties Accountant (Current Employee) –  Irving, TXJune 12, 2017
To advance at Lehigh Hanson, you must know someone or be good friends with management. There is no advancement for what the person knows, only if the person is very social.
Pros
Good Insurance, decent Christmas party
