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

I worked at Lafarge full-time (more than a year)

Pros

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

Cons

Heavily 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 ManagementAdvice

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