    Pros

    Pay is good. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Corporate snakes trying to run out dependable average joe employees. Mexican run company wanting to bring in workers that they don't have to pay as much.
    Once you are a target they want to eliminate they will stop at nothing to get you out

    Advice to Management

    There is no advice. They are all corrupt, and will do whatever they have to do to rise to the top only to be taken out by another snake that is trying to do the same.

    I worked at CEMEX full-time

    Pros

    Small Corporate Office, so you have access to upper management and get to sale yourself easily.
    Care about employee safety

    Cons

    It's a family company, no matter the global presence or the revenues of the company. For career development, you have to be well connected and always keep in mind that the position you would like to apply for, can we assigned to somebody's relatives from Mexico.
    US President lack of interpersonal skills, even has hard time addressing the company.
    My humble opinion, find another place to work.
    They are 2 CEMEX, the ones for the well connected people and the other for all the John Doe's

    Advice to Management

    Change CEMEX USA President, stop saving the pennies and spending the dollars.
