Slower paced as what I am used to. I love a challenge, but not getting the work satisfaction I wanted. I also had to relocate. It's a good company though.

Work starts at 06h30 in the morning and is busy dealing with people interface, meetings, inspections, investigations, facilitating risk assessments and procedures from the moment you walk in until 16h30pm knock off time. Management on site is strict with a zero tolerance for poor quality and accidents.The employees work hard and play hard. Being away from home for extended periods. Pay weekends are the most enjoyable part of the job!
Pros
4 day pay weekends
Cons
working away from home constantly

It's been a good company to work for until recently. Gone through restructuring in 2015, a year later we're going through another one. You don't feel safe anymore, can't make any long term planning due to job uncertainty. It is very hard, not knowing what the future holds for you in the company that you're currently working for.
