Selling core aggregate and concrete assets across North America will continue.

Safety Manager (Former Employee)

ProsLafarge used to be a great company to work for. Great compensation with bonus plan with many talented employees. Growth potential and advancement opportunites were numerious.

ConsLafarge in the United States is only a shell of what it used to be. The Company sold many assets the past few years to pay for it's burdensome debt from a middle east purchase of several billion dollars. It was a strategic move that failed and the United States and Canadian operations are paying for it by being sold.

Advice to Senior ManagementIts too late. You missed the opportunity to retain leadership in the United States and Canada. Selling off all your business will only continue to destroy value in North America. Senior Management in France made a terrible error in judgement and now is committed to see it through even though it is not in the interest of its shareholders.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
