    I have been working at CEMEX (USA) full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Top management is interested in hiring recent college graduates and training them in what is called the "CEMEX Way". For this group of employees, there are a lot of opportunities to acquire new skills, both formally and through mentoring, and eventually find an area of interest. There are always a hefty number of projects going on and a need for (young) people willing to work long, insane hours to meet company goals.

    Cons

    CEMEX has a long tradition of buying established companies to grow their business. Unfortunately, the employees that come along with these acquired companies are not given the value and respect they deserve. Worse, if you happen to be over the age of 40 you're looked upon as someone not worthy of retaining and you'll be disposed of at the first opportunity. It doesn't matter what you accomplished with your previous employer. If CEMEX buys the company you work for, you start at ground zero, as in you have zero years of experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management, especially departmental managers and plant managers, could use tons of lessons in civility and good manners. Also, just because someone did not start his or her career with CEMEX does not mean that the employee is not valuable and does not have good ideas. My advice to management, especially middle and upper management, is to put your egos aside and pay attention to what your employees (all of them, not just the favorites!) are suggesting. Also, expand your inner clique and open more growth opportunities for everyone, regardless of their experience or cultural background.
