    I have been working at CEMEX full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nice atmosphere
    Pays OK, but you have to live around the offices, otherwise not competitive if you are in Swiss bigger cities
    Diversity

    Cons

    Turnover is enormous (of course not disclosed by Management)
    Expect NO career progression.
    Cemex management style is based on the "hero" manager model. This worked with skilled managers 30 years ago..
    However local management in Switzerland is totally lost, (no strategy strategy or even any plan). They are the managerial laggards within Cemex.
    As usual, the pressure goes down to lower positions who are paying for the lack of competence of their leaders.

    Advice to Management

    Full of great employees, the problem is with management, so no advice here.
