The work life balance needs to be addressed. There have been many headcount reductions over recent years with no reduction in job responsibilities leading to tired teams.

Workplace culture is good. Company culture is important to employers too because workers who fit in with the company culture are likely to not only be happier, but more productive. When an employee fits in with the culture, they are also likely to want to work for that company for longer. Thus, employers can improve productivity and employee retention through a strong office culture.

Legacy Holcim Technology was a great company to work. However the company has changed after the merger. Now it's part of LafargeHolcim group. The management team has changed.

If you're working at franceschini depot, the people are amazing.

Management however is a monkey show. Benefits are laughable for such a huge company.


Supervisors will have you doing a million different jobs that are not discussed at the beginning of your employment but you have to do them anyways.


Pay is horrendous. Unfair and just ridiculous. Really low pay for such a huge company
Pros
Great working hours
Cons
No over time, no team work, little pay

We start the day with a review of our tool box, schedule work according to project plan. Work are done as a team under a team lead, and under a foreman.Management meetings are held bi-weekly were we present performance report. The hardest part of the work is during initiation when we are trying to develop the project plan. The most enjoyable part is when we meet our project objective
