    Pros

    All growth you can get; challenging projects, master degrees, interesting colleagues and international experience!

    Cons

    You need to be willing to relocate. Also, some of your bosses could be not very fair or stimulating. Burocratic!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to continue to be the leader, customers really need to come first in your strategy.

    I worked at CEMEX full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Among the pros that I found during my tenure as Advisor are warm camaraderie amongst colleagues, rich and diverse cross-functional projects and a stellar array of the industry's top talents.

    Cons

    I found it particularly hard to make an international transfer although it was something to expect during a bad season for the industry.

    I worked at CEMEX

    Pros

    It's a company that allows people to grow inside the company because it gives the oppotunity of making decissions at any level. I enjoyed my experience

    Cons

    Sometimes the job can be vey hard because there are no times for anybody, what i mean is that i could have a labor day of 14 hours non stop.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should focuse a little bit more in the people's needs, so they don't get tired of the job, it should be more fun

    In the offices of Cemex Central, the food offering should be better so that employees can eat in the company without leaving.
