    I have been working at Holcim (US) full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pros to this job are the potential for advancement, especially if willing to relocate globally. The culture is positive and safety is always at the forefront of each day. Great people and high production rates are a common occurrence each day.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges working here are the daily struggles of planning and preventing unplanned shutdowns with such high production targets. We achieve our goals generally, but it seems when it rains, it pours. It's tough to be open minded to the world outside while being so focused on our world within.

    Advice to Management

    I feel raises and profit sharing could be more advantageous toward management who work well above the "expected" hours due. Public stock trading would be a nice incentive as well.

    Pros

    Industry experience working on meaningful projects. Program that encourages you to learn all aspects of the company. Plant employees are friendly. Working in a rural area.

    Cons

    Communication gap at times between production and maintenance as I guess is true in most of the industry. Gap in management at the time.

    Pros

    Great company culture where management really cared about it's employees. The company stresses on safety issues and there are unlimited sick days. The hours aren't demanding and you can leave at a reasonable time if your work is done.

    Cons

    The cement industry is one that is dry and can be boring at times. The communicate was also brutal if you did not live close since it's near I-93.
