    I worked at Lafarge North America (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is decent and lots of overtime.

    Cons

    Upper management is horrible. They give you no notice if they are laying off or when they are cutting jobs. You can have your job one day and the next day it's gone. They don't care about family life. You could be scheduled off for the weekend and a day before your days off, you are told you have to work. Can't ever make plans for days off.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about your employees.

    I worked at Lafarge North America full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I had the privilege of working with a small but talented and highly agile team that accomplished a tremendous amount of work.
    Our IT organization built a great working relationship with the user community and the executives as well.

    Cons

    After nearly 20 years with Lafarge, the merger with Holcim resulted in the move of my position to Chicago. I have traveled there quite frequently over the last five years, but my family is unable to move there at this time. I am now looking for exciting new opportunities somewhere in the Detroit metro area.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working a seamless integration to realize the untapped potential of the talented employees.
