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

Pros

HR is very with it; global network of people and resources; lots of opportunity to move within the company globally and locally; great health and safety initiatives; got to use all my experience and languages in my daily work

Cons

Managers can be discouraging if you try to move within the organization; very hierarchical; seemed like they had more people doing the same jobs as my previous company (same industry); be wary of micro-managing

Advice to Management

Eliminate the union-management adversarial culture/mindset; hire good people and let them do their job; address the polarized responses from the employee engagement survey
