    Pros

    massive development, there is always something new to learn in this seemingly "boring" industry. in general we have good local directors. The money is up to market standard.

    Cons

    Some discrimination and nepotism case. Shortly after the global merger with Lafarge in Jul 2015, the we have a new CEO and new Directors from Lafarge, man of them are incompetent. They can only talk, but no action.

    Advice to Management

    Start working and stop politicking.
