Pros

They are really focused on making the employees happy. They try to empower all employees and managers to control their own area of responsibility.

Cons

In trying to please everyone, you end up pleasing no one. Too much read tape in trying to get things done.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

stream line the decision making process, git rid of all the committees and teams and allow the subject matter experts to do their jobs.

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    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.
