    Former Employee - Inspector in Montgomery, AL

    I worked at CRH (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The hours was perfect the staff and employees were very help and respectful, everyone knew how to be at team player when work got backed up due to machines breaking down. The work was smooth nothing to strenuous.

    Cons

    There wasnt any. I loved my job i didnt have anything to complain about. My employer was a very wise worker that told all of us to work smart not hard. I think thats why i never complained.

    I worked at CRH full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you know your way around, lots of possibilities to hop over from one group company to another. Because of financial focus a good place to be at after a few years work experience in financial auditing.

    Cons

    Typical financial holding, high emphasis on results, and blame culture if results are not as projected. Lots of focus on people management, but doesn't work out due to financially driven culture.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to be more than just a group of companies, then get clear what CRH stands for; transform yourself from a financially driven to a mission driven organization.

    I have been working at CRH full-time

    Pros

    CRH Canada is an excellent place to work. Talented, dedicated and loyal people work very hard to produce great results for the company, and therefore ultimately for their own development. CRH Canada is full of opportunities to grow into new roles. This company lives its values unlike any workplace I've been in before. It also has limitless opportunities for development, and invests in people for decades, not just with short-term vision.

    Cons

    There are Cons to every work environment, but there is nothing wrong at CRH Canada which someone is not endeavouring to correct.

    Advice to Management

    CRH Canada is on an excellent trajectory of success. I look forward to being a part of where it will be going in the future.

    Pros

    Company pays well... really the only reason to stay

    Cons

    Senior management talks a good line but their actions demonstrate that they have zero regard for people... worst work-life balance I've ever seen

    Endless staff changes and downsizing... feel numb.... you are destroying what was a great business....way under-resourced... nobody cares about people... if you keep on this path, it will bite you in the end
