    Pros

    I can't think of anything

    Cons

    Workload is unreasonable for one person. Salary is way too low for the amount of work expected. Promotions are hard to come by.

    Advice to Management

    Having a degree in Business administration (or something similar) should not be the only determining factor for promotions. Work Experience (especially 10 years with Cemex and another 10 years in a company is within the same industry). should be considered.

    Pros

    Good work life balance and atmosphere. There is a positive undercurrent and great culture. People are supportive, for the most part.
