  1.

    I worked at CRH full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you know your way around, lots of possibilities to hop over from one group company to another. Because of financial focus a good place to be at after a few years work experience in financial auditing.

    Cons

    Typical financial holding, high emphasis on results, and blame culture if results are not as projected. Lots of focus on people management, but doesn't work out due to financially driven culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to be more than just a group of companies, then get clear what CRH stands for; transform yourself from a financially driven to a mission driven organization.

    Pros

    Really enjoyed the people and the ability to work unlimited overtime

    Cons

    Safety was always a concern because it was a quarry with high dust levels especially during dry weather. Noise pollution also an issue due to loud machinery

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    If you know the right people you can get things done. Quality people throughout the organization, but they are not necessarily at the top.

    Cons

    Management have an outdated view of IT. Over reliance on external consultants over internal resources.
