Productive and fun workplace that employs great people
Reporting Analyst Co-Op (Former Employee) –  Bedford, MAJuly 31, 2015
Holcim is a great company and their recent merger with LaFarge will provide the firm with more resources than ever. The CEO is very approachable and does monthly town hall style meetings to keep employees updated on the firm's performance and expectations. Your goals are lined out for you and it's up to you to excel in them. They recognize excellence and will reward appropriately.
Cons
Too far from the city

Great pay for stocking shelves. Must start out as a seasonal worker and then go to permanent part time. It is difficult to get full time but you receive benefits regardless

Terrible management
Certified Control Room Operator/Trainer Maint.Tech (Former Employee) –  Florence, COJanuary 31, 2015
After giving the plant twenty-two years of my life, the human resources manager conspired with others to find a bogus violation of their harassment rules and I was let go with no warning of any kind. Previously, this happened to another employee with roughly twelve years of service and has happened again since my leaving. At Holcim, you either fit in, keep your mouth shut, and buddy up with the managers, or they will find a way to get rid of you. They create an uncomfortable, borderline hostile work environment, share personal information among co-workers, pit hourly employees against each other and will hang anyone not in with their idea of the crowd.
Pros
Good pay and benefits
Cons
Terrible, biased, and unskilled management.

No chance to advance in this company
Analyst (Current Employee) –  DundeeOctober 11, 2013
Holcim does not encourage education or any growth. They will not pay for school even though they promise to. Raise in 2012 was 1.2% but the bonus was good. Holcim has cut some of their health benefits so that more comes out of employees pockets. So the total benefit package is below what other companies offer. Holcim reorganizes it's management structure every 18 months so I don't feel a lot of job security here. Co-workers are ok, there are some social events that make it fun to work here.
Pros
Social events to make it fun to work at Holcim
Cons
No chance to advance or educate yourself.
