Hi there My everyday responsibility at this role was to support an international mining client. I was the Senior Network Engineer to maintain all sites in regions of Africa /Middle east and Asia.My daily responsibility was that of requirements stage ,design Stage ,Implementation stage and handover to GNOC . I was technical team leader and manager all other engineers in my team like Wan acceleration engineer ,proxy engineer,Voice etc. My specialty was that of Wireless ,Routing , Switching and my management skill set All reporting was transparent and reported across the line from engineering to exec level. The hardest part of job was traveling across the world all the time and also operational challenges ,where engineers in gnoc could nto solve issues and I had to step in and assist and solve the issues,besides from my responsibilities. The most incredible part was with with great people and great engineers i worked with and ,the different culture and languages .truly an amazing experiences.

Service Engineer (Former Employee) - Gauteng, Gauteng
Professional service offered. Most were willing to go the extra mile. At the start of employment, company had a very human and trusting environment, many made sacrifices out of loyalty to company and customers. Resulting in good relationships formed and business advancement on both sides. With the change in economy and ownership, the company culture turned strongly to being profit driven. Enjoyment came out of trust that as a professional you would get the job done and finding practical solutions for issues with machinery. Negatives are that the production environment places excessive pressure on you, and customer demands become unrealistic under present financial climate.
Pros
Good team work
Cons
Long days, late evenings, complex machinery
