    Pros

    Cemex is a great global company which may give you a chance to travel alot. There are a lot of really good people who work here and the corporate office is starting to become more relaxed and laid back. You can create the culture you want in your area.

    Cons

    Takes forever to move up in this company. Most managers have been here for 20+ years. Some departments have difficulty finding ways to keep you busy

    I worked at CEMEX (USA) full-time

    Pros

    Comprehensive benefit package. Co-workers are great!

    Cons

    Too many new policies rolling out. Not sufficient enough time to get intoned with the old policies and they roll out new stuff, it's too much. Don't expect to have any relief. If the plant is running you'll be expected to be there.

    Advice to Management

    Hire one more guy to float around and cover so it's a bit more flexible. Try and create a work- life balance for the management positions which should create sustainability.

    Pros

    Good Pay, good culture ok benefits

    Cons

    Management , no training or support

    Advice to Management

    If your are going to compete with American based companies, training and development needs to be in place. Everyone else does it.

    Pros

    Good pay per hour people and managers are nice treat everyone well

    Cons

    The managers in charge of spending do not want to spend money on fixing old trucks, do not want to spend money on new trucks needed now. Because of this there are not enough trucks to provide excellent customer service and if you dont have a truck or your truck breaks down, because of this they expect you to drive to other plants and float on trucks not being used that day by their regular driver and on your dime.

    Advice to Management

    Buy new trucks and or fix old trucks now! Not doing so is costing the company, drivers, and their families.
    You shouldn't make decision that affect the drivers salary and families because you dont want to forfeit your bonuses. Give employees a Christmas party and buy us at the very least little Cesar's pizza once a month to say thank you. You'd be surprised the positive impact such a small act would make within your employees outlook on the company.

    Pros

    Plenty of Overtime and offered Health Benefits and 401K

    Cons

    Difficult to learn in that environment due to noise. People who were supposed to train did not do it well.

    Advice to Management

    Training methods should be reviewed and revised. Treat new employees fairly and understand that they need time to learn.

    Pros

    Safety Culture, Environmental, quality product

    Cons

    Poor Leadership
    Many initiatives that never end up going anywhere
    For a company that has the motto of "work as one Cemex" every region does things very different.
