Lots of opportunity to travel and get exposure to other operations withing the Group.

De Beers reward those that work hard and produce results. Innovation is encourage and new ideas/opportunities are exploited. the hardest part was working away from home and the family as you miss out on birthdays etc. However you so get time off for time spend away from home

Pros

Safety First and of course Production

De Beers is the Company where everyone would like to work for, a very strict company when it comes to safety and a company that takes a good care of employees, eg The Company is offering courses and of course when we reach the targets then there is Braai.

My years at De Beers hold some of my fondest memories. I enjoyed my work. I enjoyed my team. I enjoyed my relationships with colleagues. I wish the c.

I spent about 18 years of my life working for De Beers, and I don't have a single regret about it. I have built relationships that are lasting up to this day. I've worked with excellent people, and teams. Looking back, I realise that the people of De Beers are a true family. I think that the company lives up to the value, "show we care". I believe that the company allowed me to grow tremendously

Stressful

Too many unnecessary strategies in place which could result in a lost time incident or even death. Professional engineers and the like should be allowed to perform their duties without being monitored as if they were apprentices.

Highly professional

Started off by getting to know the people very well.ive learned a lot...of how to paint and how to grind....and when I heard I will be working at the dock...i was so excited but the hardest part is when you go on sort time.....but the excited part is when the next ship comes in and there is work.
