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

    Pros

    Very dynamic, challenging atmosphere. Vast resources are amassed in terms of knowledge and tools to operate. Good pay. Very health and safety concerned environment.

    Cons

    Old boys club type of core organization. It is really hard to tap into those enormous amounts of experience accumulated as it is kept inside an inner circle. Once you reach that circle further experience sharing almost stops. Sometimes it is even hard to get any new contractor or business service provider in just because it does not belong to a group of trusted providers.

    Advice to Management

    Walk the talk. Strategy and values are declared, but not always followed with instances of decisions complete contradicting the official course of action.
