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

Pros

Lafarge 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.

Cons

Lafarge 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 ManagementAdvice

Its 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.

    I have been working at Lafarge North America full-time for 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.
