Pros

Great people and interesting market.

Lafarge is currently undergoing a massive restructuring, worldwide. Creates disruption in the business leaving customers and vendors dissatisfied with products and service.

Restructuring of this scale creates the loss of valuable talent and experience.

    I worked at Lafarge North America full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The majority of the employees are really nice and most believe in team work. Great opportunity to learn and grow. The salary and benefits were wonderful. The work life balance for me, initially, was great. My hiring supervisor understood and valued the importance of family and knew that a person with a great work/life balance was essentially a great employee.

    Cons

    Lack of consistent communication between the uppers and lowers and in many cases, lack of communication between the uppers and uppers. Lack of consistent follow through on things that have been discussed which made it difficult to know what direction the company was going in. Once they get through the pangs of restructuring all will be well again.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate clear information and directives and then follow through.

    One of the best companies I have always worked for. Most of the employees that are here have been here for quite a long time. Focus on safety and health.

    Downsizing has made an impact and cleared out a lot of employees over the last few years
