    Not really good.

    Sale Officer (Former Employee) Taguig (Philippines)

    ProsGood compensation and benifits is good, but other Regional Operating Head and Area Sales Manager are enjoying accusing their people.

    ConsHolcim is good but there are some higher management employee (ROH) that no heart at all. They accusing their employee; dismissed without proper process.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease be stick to the policy, if the employee are accused for doing bad things, please deeply know where it came from, why things happened, and give them the due process. Create a steering committee, ask 3rd party to conduct investigation, and if possible, have an audit before giving their final decision.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
