You will find it difficult to get promoted since everything revolves around the manager's decision , if he doesn't like you will not get promoted whether you work hard or have better qualifications, worse if your skin colour is otherwise.
Brother hood amongst the colleagues especially on the floor
Skin colour matters

Although the admin office space was outdated when I arrived, it was updated during my time there, from open plan desks grouped together to tiny cubicles which weren't well chosen by management. Staff were treated well and encouraged to study with a subsidy from the company. Office staff were often at conflict with each other, or the subject of gossip, which wasn't always pleasant to work in or to conducive foster friendships with.
Cake and pizza once a month
Lack of good mid-level management
A day at work started with safety meetings, management meetings and machine inspections where after communicating with artisans It was exiting to further my knowledge regarding earth moving equipment We had a great management team which I was grateful to be part of The worst and hardest part of the work was the intense heat The most enjoyable part of the job was the day to day tasks of communicating with the mine and keep the equipment in a tip top condition and reaching daily targets
The whole job was a pro
Daily task is to be given a task to go and service earth moving machines on the field or different mines around the area,what i learn is to be able to attend different types of earth moving machines,we use to do on-line training to improve our skills on different areas of our field of work.
I spendmost of time designing jigs, rectifying process by lean methods, executing CAPEX, ordering tools,equipment and participating in meetings. My knowledge is extended to be a valuable asset at Komatsu. the qualifications are as follows: MBA (in Progress), Postgraduate diploma in business management, B-Tech Mechanical, Diploma Mechanical nd yellow belt for Lean Six sigma. Computer literacy: MS package, SAP (ERP), Autodesk (2D and 3D), ms projects and visio. The culture in this organization is mostly continuous working irregardless of any obstacles. The firm is over 2000 people and all have one common goal, making the customer happy. the hardest part is when there is breakdowns. i personally serve 3 departments as a process engineer and is very difficult to coupe as the workloads become very large. The most enjoyable part is when we reach targets for sales, productivity, safety and so forth. That makes me to be delighted as my inputs are valued within the firm.
Your typical day will be planned and 90% work related in your field. There are many field and learning opportunity is great to widen once's field of expertise. Some managers are not fit for the position but this will fall in place as soon as the people are are settled in the new structures following the merge between all companies. Culture is all over the place currently due to merge but will settle and people will enjoy going to work in few months.
