Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Lafarge North America full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Many talented people in the ranks and middle-management. Very committed, long term employees in Operations. Company takes care of its own.

Cons

Crony-ism. Leaders that fail are not replaced. Poor decision making or slow decision making has been costly. Company is no longer able to make critical investments in facilities and technology. Low-morale and lack of confidence in the future of the company.

Advice to Management

Company needs new ideas from talented leadership outside of the company.
