    Former Employee - Marketing Senior in Dubai (United Arab Emirates)

    I worked at Lafarge full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lafarge in the UAE was an exciting place to be. As with most every large company, there are downsides to being so big, but there are also upsides--such as training and development, many benefits, and the chance to interact with smart people everywhere.
    I joined while the company was still in the start-up phase in the UAE, the management team was very supportive and it created an immediate sense of belonging.. to the Lafarge family.

    Cons

    Long procedures before decision making!
    Lack of middle management communication channels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More interaction with shop-floor.
    Review cost cutting strategies (expenses of main office vs. sites.)
