The most useful review selected by Indeed
The most toughest part about Anglo, is compositions and benefits where an employee has to pay almost half in everything. Comparing to the the current company they full pay medical aid. which left an employee stress-free.

exciting and focused

I have learned to be independent, honest and riliability. my management were very welcoming and assisting prepared at anytime. culture was very exciting since we have diffrerent people it was very accomodative, there are times in your jounery where you will face challenges where you had to report the cousation of lost production in afternoons where maybe you have sent lot of staff to training then it effects production, most enjoyable when my section win the target and get gifts

Pros

no free lunch you bring your own

Cons

Productive in a safe environment

Mine and safety procedures form the core of business at Anglo-American to produce a safe and efficient tonnage. Basic salaries are slightly below average although they make it up with the benefits and manpower development.

Challenging and exciting place to work

The work is challenging but dynamic so it keeps you on your feet. However job descriptions aren't clear always and there's a lot of ambiguity in what your responsibilities are so a lot of the time you end up taking on a lot more things that you should.

Company which supports growth

The graduate program aims to grow and develop your skills in your job. You are given suitable responsibility. The package and remuneration is very competitive.

Great for Learning but no growth for development

Transparency should be made in terms off Shared services and Anglo Platinum for candidates applying as they get sold lies at times . Politics in the workplace is a no no that does not allow you to grow within the company regardless off the experience you have even going for a lower position still get rejected. Management should uphold true values of Anglo American and ensure the growth within the company retaining employees. Pay scale not the greatest but manageable for such a reputable big company .

Pros

Free lunch

Cons

No benefits housing, overtime, no growth if you want to grow into senior position

We manage production.

Anglo American is a good company except that in some other technical services the salaries are lower than the other sites of the company, which in my view is not fair. As result one might end up saying Anglo-American is a bad company however it is a good company to work for.

Pros

I have no idea

Cons

No long hours

Safety comes first so that we can work at the safe place and people or workers comes first

For me personally anglo American was a good company to work for, because they take safety of their employees first, and we work as a family. Safety is the number one priority. Care and respect is there at anglo American. We work as a brothers sisters keeper. Every time you start a job we need to check the hazard or something can course danger to employees. Even if the type of job change we also check the hazard because we are going to do another job.

Pros

No free lanches

Cons

Normal working hours and standby when needed

Great place to work

Working for one of the wealthiest organizations in the world is challenging and at times it is hard to monitor the impact you have as an employee, but it's still important to share your ideas and propel the company forward whether you receive any recognition.

Pros

Every need is catered to

Cons
