Part of a multinational leader in cement, concrete & aggregates

Construction & Building Systems Specialist (Former Employee) Athens (Greece)

ProsMultinational experience and culture. Good remuneration package. Leaders in H&S. Good working environment. Some exceptional people in management.

ConsHeavily bureaucratic. French central management doesn't always understand the country needs. Currently (2013) not hiring. Bad results and recession have led to a lot of lay-offs.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't let people go just on the basis that you have to get the numbers right. Be more merit-based.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
