Slow movement

Business Unit Manager (Former Employee)
Brisbane (Australia)

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

ProsLoyal and decent to employees. Have reasonable development programs although they are somewhat erratically applied. A gorwing company at an exciting point in the industry,

ConsSomewhat inflexible on career path. Do expect you to live and breath the job - at their infancy in work life balance. Can be very slow with new inititives - frustrating for an innovator.

Advice to Senior ManagementLook at how to best use people rather than fill vacancies. Support innovation with more flexible approaches.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
