    Pros

    Cemex has an unified operating model tha permits to govern its businesses in every country where Cemex has operations.

    Cons

    The operational model that CEMEX implemented, makes Cemex heavy and slow in order to react to the challenge´s market. Countries have little opportunities to respond to country´s needs, only for regulatory needs ones.

    Pros

    CEMEX is a global company that has applied international processes and standards. It is well structured and offers career development.

    Cons

    Due to both northern Mexican labor culture and a very male environment, CEMEX is very demanding in terms of time and energy investment. It's a great school but professional and personal lives are not quite balanced.

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    Global leverage is there but due to downsizing people do not have enough time to network with those outside the country.

    Cons

    Autocratic and bureaucratic management practices are taking the toll on this company. They are not able to grow as other players in the market which has caused them to lose market share.

    Advice to Management

    Hire young and smart people
