    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Competitive pay, managers pushed and rewarded for developing personnel professionally. Paternity time off for new fathers.

    Cons

    Much of the good base of the corporate culture is lost at a regional level. Regional VP's can make what would be a great company to work for into a hostile workplace. Not enough oversight from Lafarge corporate.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some effective business and systems analysts and listen to them. Concrete division is falling apart. Employees are afraid of being fired for anything. This all comes down to the current regional VP. Norm Moran created the same unhealthy atmosphere.
