    Pros

    The benefits and compensation are better than average. Development opportunities are available, but you need to pursue them.

    Cons

    Lafarge is a very male dominated company. Good if you're "one of the guys". Not so good if you're not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep working to break up the good ole boy network. Progress has been made to focus on diversity, but lots of work still to be done.

    I worked at Lafarge full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lafarge in the UAE was an exciting place to be. As with most every large company, there are downsides to being so big, but there are also upsides--such as training and development, many benefits, and the chance to interact with smart people everywhere.
    I joined while the company was still in the start-up phase in the UAE, the management team was very supportive and it created an immediate sense of belonging.. to the Lafarge family.

    Cons

    Long procedures before decision making!
    Lack of middle management communication channels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More interaction with shop-floor.
    Review cost cutting strategies (expenses of main office vs. sites.)

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
