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

Pros

Lafarge offered good benefits like a company vehicle, insurance, and pay was OK. Formerly dominated the building materials market.

Cons

You only get training if you're deemed high potential. Bad relationships amongst co-workers. A lot of management is not transparent. Talk a good game, but don't follow through. If you work your butt off it may not matter.

Advice to Management

Be more upfront about what's happening. You're not breeding a good work enthronement.
