    I have been working at Carmeuse full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I've been here for more than 10 years and have many opportunities to develop, grow, and be promoted. The pay and benefits are great, including raises and very competitive bonuses. The support from front-line management, middle management, and upper management is great.

    By far the best place I've ever worked and I'd highly recommend to anyone.

    Cons

    There are no cons in my opinion.

    Advice to Management

    A lot has been done over the past 2 years to improve communications and "working together". Also, much has been done to improve engagement. Please continue to move these things forward. Employee engagement activities and open communications are critical.

    I have been working at Carmeuse full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A positive emphasis on work/life balance and family values. Managers are very understanding about family needs & priorities. Great benefits. Paternity & maternity leave benefits. Good vacation time. Strong communication from CEO to all employees through quarterly addresses. Great culture - we embrace the Fish Philosophy. Really phenomenal people to work with - very collaborative, respectful and helpful. Very fast paced and dynamic. The work is challenging and rewarding. Lots of opportunities to learn new areas and skills. I haven't looked around for new employment opportunities since I started here.

    Cons

    We are really lean. Sometimes it can be stressful when the workload is particularly high. Getting an additional headcount approved can be difficult to achieve.

    Pros

    Decent benefits, reasonable parking, good location

    Cons

    Inconsistent management styles, supervisors and managers who don't believe in managing and feel they don't have follow company policy. Abusive managers allowed to stay in positions for years.

    I worked at Carmeuse full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Got to travel occasionally and see some interesting things in the manufacturing industry

    Cons

    Antiquated processes, nepotism at executive levels resulting in bad business decisions, too small to advance professionally. Expected to work nights and weekends at all hours. Executives out of touch with operations. Employee morale was lowest at any company I have seen

    Advice to Management

    If you are paying someone to do a job, let them do that job. Micromanagement of intelligent, hard-working employees negatively impacts output.

    I worked at Carmeuse full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities for training and personal development. Most other salaried employees are helpful, friendly and up front.

    Cons

    What is expected of employees at all levels is often unrealistic in terms of workload and working hours. You can't efficiently run certain plants on skeleton crews and then demand more and more from them.

    Advice to Management

    Clearly communicate what expectations are and don't back door employees into poor performance. Assess what true manpower needs are and supply them, work/life balance!?

    I have been working at Carmeuse full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Carmeuse offers employees with a multitude of benefits including: a dynamic and flexible working environment; competitive compensation and benefit plans; development galore (the only thing holding employees back is themselves); cross functional work groups/teams and much, much more. Carmeuse is led by a group of forward thinking professionals who are focused on the long term success of the business.

    Cons

    While I personally do not consider this a con, some do...be prepared for change. In order for Carmeuse to successfully implement the business strategy, they must be prepared to adapt to the ever changing business conditions facing a global economy. Anyone wanting to work for this organization should be able to embrace change.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to utilize cross functional teams and to seek plant level advice in regards to employee engagement levels. Updated and more efficient use of technology would also be appreciated (although we are moving in the right direction in this regard).
