    Former Employee - Business Unit Manager in Brisbane (Australia)

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Somewhat 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 ManagementAdvice

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