I worked at Lafarge full-time

Pros

Very supportive of employee development. Huge career opportunities for people that do not mind relocation every 3 years, and are willing to consider international assignments.

Cons

Organization sometimes experiences analysis paralysis, and mico-management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Executive management dont be afraid to empower your midlevel and front line managers to direct themselves and make decisions. Lafarge has great values and great people with world class development and education. Trust them.

    I worked at Lafarge full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Used to offer amazing international assignments and potential for career advancement. It is still an opportunity as soon as the market picks back up.

    Cons

    CEO (BL) is only focused on managing financials for the current quarter. There is absolutely no vision for the future and strategy is sacrificed to get back the credit rating that was lost. The last 4 years here were only focused on cash savings, cash savings, cash savings...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can focus on the future while not forgetting the current objectives (many companies do it every day)
