I worked at Lafarge North America full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

In order to move up the ladder you have to move to different locations. Unfortunately most of the location are not located near a large metropolitan city. Your career is what you make of it.

Cons

In big plants you are expected to work more than 40 hours.

    I worked at Lafarge North America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Stable environment with room to grow. Large organization to learn from. Lafarge has a nice salary structure and health benefits package. The company values safety more than many others and although the process of working safely for some is a pain in the rear, I welcomed it.

    Cons

    Not many. A down or slow economy creates a "doom and gloom" atmosphere and "do more with less" attitude, but most all industries will experience the same. The cement manufacturing & distribution industry is like a roller coaster ride.

    Advice to Management

    None.


  2. "Poor communication between France and America"

    I worked at Lafarge North America full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Outstanding Company, that produced high tech products.
    Poor management forced the company, in the Denver area to its knees. Lots of potential from previous employees that were unsatisfied and moved on.

    Cons

    Great insurance benefits, none can be surpassed working for Lafarge. They really knew how to take care of their people for long haul.
    Unfortunate that the company was sold in 2011 to Martin Marietta, or should I say Suburban. Lots of the employees who quit Lafarge between 2006 and 2010 returned under Suburban to supervise the entire front range. This company is doing well now (Martin) but will fail under the same management.

    Advice to Management

    Spend time in the field, and realize each market area is different. Don't rely on management's opinion for the complete operation. Communicate with workers more, they are your frontline information source.
