I learned much during my time at Holcim, the pay was decent during that era and I was able to firm up my network. The downside is they only offered short term contracts instead of permanent full-time positions.

I can only comment on the company pre-merger with Lafarge. At that time, most big decisions were made in the US, although much of the innovation for non-cement business was coming from Canada. Overall happy with the company.

We were able to work well with all departments as we all effected each other in one way or another. We worked well together and in many ways were as close as family, as we came from a much smaller office in Markham and together grew into a much larger organization, with respect and compassion, mostly.

Working within Lafargeholcim you find immediately that 40 hours a week is not acceptable. To complete what is expected you will stay long hours and then work more once you get home. Those who do not follow this culture are swiftly replaced by someone who is willing to do so
Pros
Great perks
Cons
Work Life Balance is non existent

Lafarge was bought by Holcim. The days of working the "Lafarge way" are over. Anyone who applies there should now look for Holcim reviews as Holcim does not have the same values as Lafarge did.

Such a great environment to work in. The salary may not have been the highest but the culture makes up for the shortfall. I would recommend this company to anyone who is looking for a Brand who recognizes their employees.

I worked at Lafarge on a contract basis. I enjoyed working here because I learned new computer programs, met some wonderful people, and was able to travel to other Lafarge locations in Canada.

it is a good place for the beginner and newcomer. But when you growup, you may want to leave as what you get is not equal to what you pay

It is diverse workplace. I enjoyed going to work each day. It was more like fun and work. Staff were helpful and friendly.

There were the odd days and weekends when I had to stay late and work to ensure that our customers were paid.


Sometimes the SAP system will give problem but other than that all was good. The good part of the job was broadening my knowledge with SAP system and OCR.


I enjoyed our morning huddles and our Friday lunch treat.

Although it is a good company and amazing friendly culture, it will take you very long to take those steps up in the career.
