I have been working at Lafarge full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

World leadership in building materials gives an unmatched edge over others, through resources, modus operandi and recognition.

Cons

Management could be bureaucratic and myopic at times, ignoring the world is not the operating areas and to most of the fellows, the brand could be nothing but another business.

Advice to Management

Comparison with other organisations beyond the industry will help overcome the stagnancy, status quo and premeditated mind set of doing things.

    Pros

    Salary is good since at the higher middle of the market - in general.
    Safety oriented concerns is very well set.
    Management tries to following the management styles by the book

    Cons

    The old and long path for any decision making; actually no one can take any decision unless escalated to a higher level... we don't know when such decisions are made and by whom.

    Steering committees/ Xcom and overall management spend too much money than the normal F.Selling & Admin expenses

    Advice to Management

    get rid of your long process till obtaining a decision... this takes ages.
