District Sales Manager (Former Employee), Franklin, TNMarch 19, 2013
Pros: autonomy in day to day management
Cons: very bureaucratic at times
Working at Lafarge was most enjoyable when I was able to interact with customers and my sales staff. With the downturn in the US economy that part of my job was significantly reduced with a more internal focus.

Lafarge is great for taking care of their people, the only downfall is that you usually get laid off for the winter due to the nature of the business.

Purchasing (Former Employee), Woodstock/Mississauga, ONAugust 27, 2012
I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Lafarge, and continue to look back on great times and good people. I worked for a Cement plant and at the head office during my time with the company. Both locations had gereat, intelligent people and a good team culture. I regret leaving the company, but I had a lengthy commute and that drove my decision.

The company – more... takes care of it's employees. When the plant I worked at closed, nearly every staff member was offered a job at other plants within the organization, myself included. Even some of the hourly employees were offered jobs, the company paying moving expenses to bring people to the other side of the country. I felt safe the entire time I worked with Lafarge.

The company takes training and coaching very seriously. I didn't ever feel like i wasn't properly informed of my duties, or that I didn't have good istruction on any task I was given. There were a number of opportunities to go outside my standard job description and increase my visability with the organization. Looking back, I really wish I could get back into the organization, and would jump at the opportunity. – less

Very results focused company
Maintenance Planner (Current Employee), Exshaw, ABJune 29, 2012
Pros: advancement opportunities
Cons: became impersonal
Began as a labourer straight out of high school and through their career advancement opportunities, have learned all aspects of mining manufacturing industry. For the most part, co-workers are like family. Hardest part of the job is seeing what was a small Canadian company become a huge multi national conglomerate and all of the necessary "corporate" – more... decisions over "employee" needs that results from massive expansion. – less
