    Pros

    fair pay and benefits, decent mid level management, great customers to work with; flexible with family demands, overall "low key" feeling to company

    Cons

    senior management seems to be totally out of touch with the lowest rungs of who works for them, both salary and hourly; appearance seems to be that unless you are "chosen" or know someone at the highest levels, you will not get promoted beyond the position you hired into

    Advice to Management

    read your 360 evals and go and back them up in the field - ask for harsh criticism, and accept it without repercussions - too many employees afraid of speaking up, many have good ideas

    Pros

    pretty good hours, better than the CEMEX parent company to work for.

    Cons

    Would not be here for the long term. Limited advancement especially with slow market currently. Don't see much of what I am working towards.

    Advice to Management

    Let people know where they can go from the position that they are at and what they want their employees to do.

    Pros

    I think if you are a new graduate and are willing to live where ever, the opportunities at Cemex are endless. You can move into different areas if you are interested and willing to relocate. Also if you want to experience other countries, this would be available.

    Cons

    1) When senior management wants something "now", they don't care if it means a lot of overtime or time away from families. You can be compensated monitarily, but you will be worked hard for it.
    2) Not a lot of communication from management down.
    3) Work/Life balance is not as depicted on website.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more with lower levels and encourage/insist middle management communicates downward. If your website says you believe in work/life balance, then walk the talk.
