    Current Employee - Marketing Cement in Paris (France)

    Pros

    Good work atmosphere and good rapport shared between employees and senior management. Compensation is decent and lots of opportunities to grow exist in emerging markets.

    Cons

    Slow in decision-making and not very organized. The company's divisions in other countries seem to be small independent companies by themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lafarge's vision needs to be clearly broken down into practical tasks. Then the implementation plans to complete those tasks should be clearly drawn.

    Current Employee - Project Leader

    Pros

    Good work life balance.
    Low pressure to deliver results
    Freedom to perform at the level you wish to.

    Cons

    Must absolutely find a 'godfather' to secure your career progression
    very internal focused so you'll need lots of energy to work internally
    Decision making far too slow, nothing is ever decided the 1st time it is shown to management

    Disapproves of CEO
