    Great Company always looking to grow

    Manager (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsThis is a great growing company! They really allow the employees to have a impact and changes on the way business is done. Very open door to hearing everybody's opinion. Even as large as Imerys they are always looking at growing and adding divisions

    ConsThere is not as much cohesion and communication between the divisions. If done right Imerys should be able to use its Purchasing power among all of the divisions as leverage with their vendors.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave more inter-division meetings and events. Help organize similar departments to work together to help share ideas and problems to ensure future success as a company.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A frustrating struggle between standards/expectations and reality/budget.

    Grounds Maintenance (Current Employee) Marble Hill, GA

    ProsWorking under the best boss I've ever had.
    Employees all get along for the most part.
    Minus a few individuals, management does their job and only their job.

    ConsThe technology is ancient. There is never any money for maintenance to fix anything and it is all put on utility to keep it looking brand new. Impossible.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSpend money to fix actual problems with mills and dust collectors and not on trucks for managers! Don't use a contractor to break something that you'll have to pay an hourly employee to fix later.

    Plenty of international
    Investment from company

    ConsPoor on the job training

    Advice to Senior ManagementImprove training , especially for new starters

    GOOD TO WORK WITH

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Prosas it is an MNC it follows rules and regulation,
    it follows safety protocol of international standard,
    with lots of export business you can get an updated idea of international market.

    Conslike any private organization some internal politics exists.

    Imerys SA - Corporate HQ Paris

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Paris (France)

    ProsFriendly, personable working environment at corporate HQ. Leader in the sector but small enough that it is possible to learn a lot about varying aspects of the business/sector in a relatively short period of time.

    ConsOne should be aware of the fact that it is a very French working environment (in comparison with how international as the company is).

    Advice to Senior ManagementOne of the major drawbacks on the management side is that it is very difficult to get anything to change. A few very select individuals make most of the decisions, regardless of their actual sphere of influence (ie across business groups, hiring/firing).

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmpowerment to the lower organization and building trust

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Roswell, GA
