    I have been working at Imerys full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This is a great growing company! They really allow the employees to have a impact and changes on the way business is done. Very open door to hearing everybody's opinion. Even as large as Imerys they are always looking at growing and adding divisions

    Cons

    There is not as much cohesion and communication between the divisions. If done right Imerys should be able to use its Purchasing power among all of the divisions as leverage with their vendors.

    Advice to Management

    Have more inter-division meetings and events. Help organize similar departments to work together to help share ideas and problems to ensure future success as a company.

    I have been working at Imerys full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working under the best boss I've ever had.
    Employees all get along for the most part.
    Minus a few individuals, management does their job and only their job.

    Cons

    The technology is ancient. There is never any money for maintenance to fix anything and it is all put on utility to keep it looking brand new. Impossible.

    Advice to Management

    Spend money to fix actual problems with mills and dust collectors and not on trucks for managers! Don't use a contractor to break something that you'll have to pay an hourly employee to fix later.
