Work environment is conducive. Company could look into benefits (medical aid, pension/provident fund)for their employees. Staff recognition is given quarterly which is good.

Working at Robertson and Caine is exciting building world class catamarans

It's challenging yet a great experience. The excitement comes when you see the finished product and read about it in other reviews. On the pamphlets you can see your handiworks it gives you a sense of pride knowing that you are a building this huge sought after catamaran that people are seeking after.

Depending department that you work in. Cultures are different in each department.

Always be ready for day to day changes in the company. Focus point must always be that boats must be delivered to customer on time with minimum defects.

Pros

Start with morning sessions. Teatime and lunch time always stipulated that you must take.

Cons

The morning planning sometimes get over turned by managers, because they have senior position to move staff around.

Interesting people

The business has grown quickly and certain systems and procedures need to be streamlined. Fantastic colleagues, management isn't always consistent and fair therefore a very mixed positive and negative environment.
