    I worked at Buzzi Unicem USA full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Company has excellent medical and retirement benefits.

    Cons

    Company has no consistency in any area. Communication is almost non-existent from top to bottom. Managers receive virtually no training on how to manage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make annual company goals known to everyone. Create consistent and effective communication and provide that more than once per year. Provide annual training to managers and supervisors from the senior management to line managers.

    I have been working at Buzzi Unicem USA

    Pros

    The company provides respectable business hours. My coworkers are generally pleasant to be around, as well as the other couple of employees from other terminals/plants that I've met. If you can manage to get benefits, the holiday schedule is fair. If you somehow make it to a managerial role, you're pretty set, assuming you're not looking for a salary comparable to a similarly sized corporation.

    Cons

    Promotions, lateral movements, and opportunities in general are basically non-existent. Management will mention promotions/moves on a fairly regular basis, but none have ever materialized. Raises are minuscule, if received at all. After well over 5 years of work I've amassed 2 very quaint raises, despite receiving very high marks on my employee evaluations. Maybe in 5 more years I'll surpass the 30k a year mark. Hard work does not equal success within this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do more hiring from within the company. There are plenty of people within the organization that have college degrees as well as experience to avoid bringing in 'outsiders'. Also, keep a better eye out on terminal managers, there are several managers 'gaming' the system. If it were my name on the company sign, I wouldn't tolerate a lot of the behavior and traits that I've witnessed working for this company.
