Good company

It is a very large company and lots of procedures to follow. Seemed that inter-departmental co-operation was not fostered, rather a competitive attitude was kindled.

Pros

Productive

The Coal SA business (aka Anglo Coal) has good salaries and bonuses - they are above average, although disparities tend to be based on racial lines, i.e. white personnel in the same role make more and advance faster.Mining and Engineering are probably best departments to be in, the managers in those departments tend to have a lot of say and are generally better at managing their departments. The same can't be said for Technical Services, particularly Geology - management is weak and the department tends to be sidelined. The company culture is more concerned about putting in the hours than the quality of work produced. Probably not the best place to be in if you seek an intellectual challenge - work is repetitive and innovation is only encouraged in theory but generally never accepted.

Pros

Development courses are paid for and encouraged, Further degrees can be paid for depending on the line manager

Cons

Intellectually not stimulating, Afrikaans culture still very strong, Afrikaans used to sideline black employees at the mines

A professional and collaberative environment

Anglo American is a stable place to work with a good workplace culture. It has the added advantages of pension and medical aid. I enjoyed working in the corporate environment.

Pros

There were free lunches (not sure if that is still available)

Cons

There could possibly be long hours depending on the environment.
