Pros

Management compensation is very competitive. Benefits are excellent for management and 401k match is currently(2010) 75%. Lafarge is a global company, willing to relocate valuable personnel.

Cons

Mining is stressful and the current top-down business approach from France is strangling the life out of all workers, both salaried and hourly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Your lack of support for hourly workers will ultimately be the demise of your current business model. Please realize that a large body of workers have no confidence in upper management.

    Pros

    They pay employees well. A large corporation that moves slow. Too many managers afraid to make changes or suggest changes to improve business.

    Cons

    A large corporation that moves slow. Lafarge has a lot of high paid employess that produce very little. Top heavy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut upper management and hire lower paid employees that will get the job done. Too many sales people that do not produce or stay in contact with current customer base.

    Could be great, but, misses the mark due to localized upper management.

    Pros

    Competitive pay, managers pushed and rewarded for developing personnel professionally. Paternity time off for new fathers.

    Cons

    Much of the good base of the corporate culture is lost at a regional level. Regional VP's can make what would be a great company to work for into a hostile workplace. Not enough oversight from Lafarge corporate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some effective business and systems analysts and listen to them. Concrete division is falling apart. Employees are afraid of being fired for anything. This all comes down to the current regional VP. Norm Moran created the same unhealthy atmosphere.
