I worked at Lafarge North America full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Many talented people in the ranks and middle-management. Very committed, long term employees in Operations. Company takes care of its own.

Cons

Crony-ism. Leaders that fail are not replaced. Poor decision making or slow decision making has been costly. Company is no longer able to make critical investments in facilities and technology. Low-morale and lack of confidence in the future of the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Company needs new ideas from talented leadership outside of the company.

    Work-life benefits, social events, networking with other departments on a regular basis.

    Cons

    Senior management highly demanding and stressing employees in all departments. No communication with staff, no goal setting, and strategy alignment within departments.
