I have been working at Lafarge North America full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Really good benefits that include medical, dental, vision, 401k, life, disability, reimbursements for gym memberships and awesome maternity leave policy! Most management is capable and attentive and they really focus on developing their employees to advance. Low turn-over and great employee morale. Flex-time and ability to work from home.

Cons

Business structure and environment CONSTANTLY and QUICKLY changes so if you're not used to working in a fast paced, constantly evolving environment, this would not be the company for you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

With all the constant changes, communicate plans better.

    I worked at Lafarge North America full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Being in a union, we had great wages, plenty of overtime, business was good.

    Cons

    When business stopped, lay-offs were by seniority and the hard workers were the first ones to go. Upper management had no clue how we ran the plant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should dig deeper on how our plant worked instead of assuming.
