    I worked at Lafarge North America full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The majority of the employees are really nice and most believe in team work. Great opportunity to learn and grow. The salary and benefits were wonderful. The work life balance for me, initially, was great. My hiring supervisor understood and valued the importance of family and knew that a person with a great work/life balance was essentially a great employee.

    Cons

    Lack of consistent communication between the uppers and lowers and in many cases, lack of communication between the uppers and uppers. Lack of consistent follow through on things that have been discussed which made it difficult to know what direction the company was going in. Once they get through the pangs of restructuring all will be well again.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate clear information and directives and then follow through.


  2. "Excellent fun environment to work for"
