I worked at Imerys

(Translated from English)

Pros

Environnement de travail amical et sympathique au QG de l'entreprise. Leader dans le secteur mais suffisamment petit pour pouvoir apprendre beaucoup de nombreux aspects du secteur du business dans une petite période de temps.

Friendly, personable working environment at corporate HQ. Leader in the sector but small enough that it is possible to learn a lot about varying aspects of the business/sector in a relatively short period of time.

Cons

Il faut être conscient que c'est un environnement de travail très français (en comparaison au caractère international de l'entreprise)

One should be aware of the fact that it is a very French working environment (in comparison with how international as the company is).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Un des principaux revers du côté du management est la difficulté à changer quoi que ce soit. Peu d'individus prennent la plupart des décisions, quelle que soit leur sphère d'influnce (entre les groupes, recrutement/licenciement)

One of the major drawbacks on the management side is that it is very difficult to get anything to change. A few very select individuals make most of the decisions, regardless of their actual sphere of influence (ie across business groups, hiring/firing).

    A frustrating struggle to balance expectations with available resources.

    I worked at Imerys full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    They have a good benefits package. My boss was supportive and encouraged us to think outside of the box. They are also supportive if you have an interest in continuing education, providing some reimbursement for classes and or professional development seminars.

    Cons

    The name of the game is lean and mean these days but they tend to be a little too lean in areas. Some sites work all holidays, weekends, ect. Also, very disorganized when it comes to communicating policies/procedures across the various sites.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Developing a new hire training program and a basic employee handbook would be a great next step to help maintain consistency and a clear understanding of expectations across the multiple sites.

    I have been working at Imerys full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. Outside work, with fellow co-workers. The longer I'm with the company, the more I feel like part of the family.

    Cons

    Very little to add to the con section. For hourly employees, it's a very dirty and dusty job. Dirt and dust are the only negatives.
