I liked how everyone in the office seems nice. In other words, nobody is looking for drama. There are moments of stress, but that's expected in any kind of company. The members of management are kind, but the downsides of the company is that there doesn't seem to be too much growth. I know a temporary employee in my department who has no idea whether they will keep him or not after he's finished the work he's there to do. I, too, don't know if I will be offered a full-time position after my internship because there are no open positions in our department. Also, upward growth is difficult because none of the upper-leveled management seems to want to leave their own positions. Everyone is basically just stuck being whatever position they are unless they add/create new positions. The benefits are not as good as they could be - there should be more vacation time available for employees. A really nice thing is that they have business casual dress throughout the week, and then jeans on Fridays. Overall, the company is a great company to work for...if you can get a full-time position.
Not much "Micro-Management", great company to work for - if you get a full-time position.
Stressful moments during busy times, not enough vacation time and benefits.
I worked for a VP and learned about the structure of the company from mail, billing, corporate credit cards, purchasing contract procedures, to maintaining online files for global access within the company.
Management in my respective departments were great to work for, every day! Co-workers had a real team player dynamic and the flow was really nice.
Enjoyed learning new applications or functions within and beyond my typical job scope.
Great benefits, longevity in the company in it's field, large company.
Traffic increasingly being an issue, non within the company itself.

Good company with great benefits, but the management needs to do a better job of taking care of employees. Mgmt has the tendency to retaliate against employees for on-the- job injuries, which are very common in a heavy equipment/industrial setting.
Mine Maintenance Planner (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – September 16, 2015
Work is repetitive and never ending. I would say "The worst part of this job is..." but as there are so many aspects of the job that are bad, it would be challenging to narrow the field to three, let alone one.
The laborers are great. They work hard and are dedicated to the work they do. Unfortunately, it is like "Groundhog Day." The work is the same every day, literally. I come from the school of "fix it right the first time and move on." Unfortunately, too often bandages are applied and the root cause is never addressed, leading to repeat work. Safety is a buzz word, but injuries are common due to carelessness and inadequate safety mechanisms.
Plenty of overtime.
Constant rework, working 6 or 7 days per week is the expectation, a lot of infighting/back stabbing exhibited by management, plant manager is aggressive, closed to others opinions, and verbally abusive.

Help Desk Analyst (Former Employee) – Irving, TX – April 8, 2016
very good company with excellent people willing to lend a hand. Typical day is 15 help desk support calls. I learned active directory and citrix xenapp 6.5. Management is excellent. Co-workers will bend over backwards to teach you the things you need to know to be successful at what you doing. Hardest part of the job is not letting your co-workers down. The most enjoyable part is the wonderful people you work with.
I loved my job at Hansons. I loved the people I worked with. Enjoyed my truck drivers the most. They always made me smile and I did the same. I am still friends with all my coworkers and drivers. A-lot of face time with the drivers as they pulled up to get tickets, so i got to know everyone of them and they got to know me. The only thing I did not like about working at Hansons was it took almost 6 yrs to get a .3% raise, even after going back and forth to Waterville and Sylvania covering for the managers, coming in early and days off, when they allowed. Not many hard parts to the job. I worked with many computer programs. They liked to change the system of how thing are done a-lot, just had to get used to them all over again. and hope they would work properly.
Good place to work but bad company to work for !!! No Over Sight
Laborer (Former Employee) – Humble, TX – April 30, 2016
The corporate office has a policy for everything but less your management ! Do not hope for a fair or even interruption of the rule or a balance to the madness . Just know you're a good person sign up with a company that will flip a coin and make decision.
Lehigh Hanson was a great place to work with good benefits. The best part of my job was helping my co-workers with any questions they may have especially going on-line to do their insurance enrollment and reviewing and printing their pay stubs.
Technical (Current Employee) – Virginia – July 13, 2012
Management is quite bad with barely any pay raises ( Please negotiate your salary wisely during your interview- That's your best bet).
Career advancement is next to negligible, with barely any growth in your job. They offer Tuition reimbursement
Co-workers & Employees are outstanding in this company, very knowledgeable, and I'd say I've been very fortunate to have been with them & learned quite a lot from them. They are veterans in their field and know their art very well.
annual holidays, healthcare and 401k benefits are awesome
career advancement, pay raise, expect no credit for continuing your education
