    Pros

    Great company to have in your resume. Easy to find a job with another company after being there a year.

    Cons

    No growth opportunity. Uneducated co workers. Micromanagers. Lousy Inside Sales director. Company views department as a joke. Not a sales role, more like customer service.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the director and accurately re name department customer service.

    I worked at CEMEX (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decen pay and benefits, and PTO allotment.

    Cons

    Upper level management do not care about employees and will tell you this. Your ideas are not wanted or asked for. No work/home life balance even while on vacation you are still expected to answer the phone. One particular GM ran his people on fear, and you never knew which person you would get from day to day, and you would come to work wondering if it would be your last day. They hold managers accountable for all injuries and take bonuses away due to injuries but would not let you fix safety issues because of money and also not enough man power to even do the normal every day work load. Upper management are pricing the company right out of buissness in the area and continue to loose long time customers everyday.

    Advice to Management

    They don't listen anyway and have lost a lot of great people such as myself that always gave 110% all day everyday for over twelve years. It's a sad sad place to work.
