I worked at CEMEX

Pros

I think if you are a new graduate and are willing to live where ever, the opportunities at Cemex are endless. You can move into different areas if you are interested and willing to relocate. Also if you want to experience other countries, this would be available.

Cons

1) When senior management wants something "now", they don't care if it means a lot of overtime or time away from families. You can be compensated monitarily, but you will be worked hard for it.
2) Not a lot of communication from management down.
3) Work/Life balance is not as depicted on website.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communicate more with lower levels and encourage/insist middle management communicates downward. If your website says you believe in work/life balance, then walk the talk.

    I worked at CEMEX full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Expert, professional committed ground-level staff. Products you can be proud of. Probably still the best construction materials company around.

    Cons

    No life-work balance. Staff seen as dispensable commodities and expected to do the work of 2 or 3 people. Endemic, sometimes blatant sexism - embarrassing for any man to see who has any sense of decency. Climate of fear where people are frightened to say when anything is wrong in case they are victimised or blamed for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your staff with respect.
