Former Employee - Strategic Planning Analyst in Houston, TX
Former Employee - Strategic Planning Analyst in Houston, TX
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

A lot of exposure to some very cool, company-changing projects and strategic view from the top. If you put in the work and show some interest, they'll definitely give you the chance to prove yourself and get that experience.

Cons

The hours are long, and the environment is hyper-competitive and not particularly collaborative. It's not the kind of place where people will have your back and offer to help.

Advice to Management

The environment can at times be poisonous; there's no real sense of teamwork, and I think that's something that starts at the top. There's no sense of loyalty to CEMEX outside of the Mexican employees from Monterrey. The message sometimes seems to be that people should feel lucky just to be working there, and for a company that doesn't carry prestige with it in the United States, it's a dangerous philosophy or culture to foster.
