    Pros

    Management compensation is very competitive. Benefits are excellent for management and 401k match is currently(2010) 75%. Lafarge is a global company, willing to relocate valuable personnel.

    Cons

    Mining is stressful and the current top-down business approach from France is strangling the life out of all workers, both salaried and hourly.

    Advice to Management

    Your lack of support for hourly workers will ultimately be the demise of your current business model. Please realize that a large body of workers have no confidence in upper management.


  2. A lot of upper management that does not get much done.

    Cons

    A large corporation that moves slow. Lafarge has a lot of high paid employess that produce very little. Top heavy

    Advice to Management

    Cut upper management and hire lower paid employees that will get the job done. Too many sales people that do not produce or stay in contact with current customer base.
